Don’t Let the Sun Decide when Your Memphis Party’s Over

Memphis deck lighting keeps the party going.

Memphis deck lighting keeps the party going.

The sun can be such a party pooper, especially in the fall. It seems like your guests just have time to arrive after work and get settled in their chairs with their food and drinks when the sun starts to dip below the treeline. The lamp(s) the builder mounted on the side of the house never seem to give enough light to keep the easy fun of the evening going. A small investment in Memphis outdoor lighting can go a long way toward letting the good times roll as long as you like.

 

Energy-efficient LED outdoor lighting fixtures can be mounted almost anywhere that you want them. Many folks start with installing small ones around the edge of their porch, patio or deck, below eye level. These Memphis outdoor lighting fixtures let people see the whole area, but don’t glare in people’s faces. Their warm glow does an great job of helping everyone avoid tripping, especially around furniture, entries & exits, and on stairs.

Memphis gardens glow at night with outdoor lighting.

Memphis landscape lighting shows off your yard’s most beautiful features and allows you to enjoy your plants, flowers and trees late into the evening. Lots of us don’t realize it, but gardens are often just as lovely at night–just in a different way. The colors change subtly and the shadows create interesting contrast. Trees that you don’t look at twice during the day can become a centerpiece of your view from the porch or patio. By lighting both the deck and the yard, you get to enjoy the whole yard, even after dark.

 

Even if your priority is making the most of your free time in your yard, you will find that your Memphis outdoor lighting has lots of great side benefits. When you pull up to your home late one evening, you’ll notice how pretty your home looks from the street. The lights also deter burglars and welcome guests. People who own well-lit homes don’t fumble in the dark for house keys! We’ll even make sure that your street number is lit so people who haven’t visited before will find you easily.

 

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis can create a custom landscape lighting design solution that fits your yard and the way you like to live and entertain in it. Whether that includes plenty of task lighting in the grill or outdoor kitchen area or a series of energy-efficient lighting fixtures so that you don’t compete with the last fireflies of summer, we have you covered. We want you and your guests to enjoy lingering outside as long as you want; Mr. Sun can go home early if he wants to.

Fun Ways To Make Over Your Memphis Outdoor Living Spaces This Fall

It’s back to school season, and if you’re like us you’re ready for a change of pace. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis, we love helping our clients give their favorite outdoor spaces a makeover just in time for changing weather. Take advantage of the season, and dress up your home for the cooler weather with these fun outdoor lighting design ideas.

Enjoy the evening longer with outdoor lighting

Create a cool, unique look for your outdoor spaces by layering multiple types of outdoor lighting techniques.

If there’s one thing we’ve learned about surviving the changing seasons in Memphis, it’s that layers are a must. Apply this same rule to your outdoor spaces, and create an elegant, sophisticated Memphis outdoor lighting design using a wider variety of fixtures. For example, when working with deck and patio lighting, sometimes you need one bigger, fuller outdoor lighting fixture to cover all the bases, like a flood light. However, sometimes you’ll prefer a softer, more subtle ambient light – in that case it’s a good idea to try something fun like string lighting or festival lighting. Additionally, there may be certain aspects of your yard that you want to make sure to bring out with deck and patio lighting. For these, we highly recommend installing a few simple accent lights around the seating area. A trained expert at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis can help you pick out the perfect combinations of fixtures and bulbs to blanket your deck and patio with a gorgeous Memphis outdoor lighting design with more depth and layering than you might otherwise have in your home.

Our package can define a relaxing space in your yard

Another fun area to upgrade in your home with professional Memphis outdoor lighting is the fire pit. Take your bonfires and after-dark get-togethers to the next level by crafting a one-of-a-kind atmosphere around the fire pit with just a few outdoor lighting fixtures. String lighting around the area is a smart option that instantly sets a fun party mood but also effectively illuminates the area for your guests. A flood light may be necessary if you’ve got a particularly large seating area around the pit in order to ensure your guests’ safety around the fire. An Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis professional can easily help you evaluate your unique home and fire pit area to determine which outdoor lighting fixtures are best suited to bring your perfect party spot to life.

What are you waiting for? Don’t let the cooler weather get away from you – Before we know it the weather will have changed again and we’ll be bundled up inside until next Spring. Take advantage of the beautiful, one-of-a-kind Fall weather we get to experience every year in Memphis, and spend more time outdoors when you install a professional outdoor lighting system from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis.

Lakeland Subdivision Benefits from a Memphis LED Outdoor Lighting Upgrade

Heron's Ridge entrance lightingHeron’s Ridge is a beautiful subdivision in Lakeland, TN where 160 or so families call home. The area is known for its excellent schools, growing businesses and friendly people. The lovely neighborhood includes walking trails through nature areas, beautiful open spaces throughout the community and an adjoining park with a pond and pavilion. Homeowners in Heron’s Ridge can now also list a beautifully lit entrance that welcomes them home after a long day, compliments of Memphis subdivision entrance  lighting.

 

 

The carefully landscaped entrances of this community were once in lights but years of use had taken its toll on the fixtures.  The lighting fixtures were old and worn out and not portraying the subdivision in the light it should have been in. That’s when Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis received a call to see how we could improve the current subdivision entrance lighting. During our initial consultation, we identified many lights that were irreparable and several other areas that could benefit from additional Memphis outdoor lighting fixtures. In all, our proposal to bring the entrances back to life included the replacement of 28 lights and also offered an upgrade to our technologically advanced LEDs. Memphis LED outdoor lighting is a smart

choice for subdivisions where the lights are normally on from sunset to sunrise. That can be a long span of time to run outdoor lights every night. Using LEDs not only provide energy efficiencies so the electrical costs are lower, they also burn cooler than traditional halogen bulbs. This technology, along with the longevity of the light emitting diodes substantially lowers maintenance costs.

 

The day of the installation proved interesting. The outdoor lighting fixtures themselves were so old that the sockets had worn out. To make our job even more exciting, we concluded the current outdoor lighting system was probably installed before completion of the subdivision. Some of the wiring we were tying into actually ran under the city owned streets. Ample experience and a little patience proved to be the solution to getting the current outdoor lighting system converted to LED and running as beautifully as the landscaped entrance and manicured homes contained within. Now the community truly does welcome its residents home at night as they  drive past.

Unique Outdoor Lighting Solutions for Unique Memphis Outdoor Living

Lighting was needed over the grilling area of this outdoor kitchen.

Lighting was needed over the grilling area of this outdoor kitchen.

Sometimes, it just pays to have “people”. People can take a situation that seems impossible and make something amazing out of it. Often, you simply have to ask. Recently, this was the case with one of our longtime clients. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis had installed outdoor lighting in the front of the home about six years ago. This client called us after running into an issue installing lighting in an outdoor kitchen area. Originally, a line voltage system was planned for the area, but because of the location of the kitchen, the fixtures would be too exposed to the elements, creating hazardous conditions. Fortunately, this client gave us a call to see what we might suggest.

 

Specially designed pendant lights provided beautiful illumination and a distinctive look.

Specially designed pendant lights provided beautiful illumination and a distinctive look.

Given the design of the area, none of the fixtures in our normal inventory would create the desired look, but here at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis, we don’t let such small hang-ups prevent us from giving our clients the lighting they want and need. We contacted our fixture manufacturer, and they custom-made these beautiful pendant fixtures to use in our client’s outdoor kitchen. With just a little ingenuity,  the perfect fixture was created to complement and illuminate the area. This is one of the perks of doing business with a manufacturing company here in the United States that takes genuine interest in the needs of its clients. If you look closely, you may notice that the shade is a component of one of our existing path lights but inverted.

 

Unique outdoor lighting situations give us the opportunity to create unique, beautiful solutions.

If you have an outdoor living area that it is unconventional or needs special attention, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis would love to take on the challenge.

What may look impossible to a homeowner frequently presents us with a unique opportunity to make the best use of our skills. The homeowner gets what he/she wants, and we get to work on an exciting project that makes us proud.

I could not be more happy! They came out, examined the house, sketched a plan and talked about options for installation. Within 2 days I had a written estimate. On the day of installation the crew arrived at 7:30 and began to work. They were completely finished, cleaned up and gone by noon. I’m still amazed that you cant see where or how they buried the electrical lines. Next spring I’m going to use them to light my backyard. I would highly recommend them! John S., Memphis, TN

 

The experience was amazing! The work was performed quickly and efficiently. As an added bonus John took the time to explain what type of light bulbs to purchase and how to calculate the wattage. I highly recommend this company. Janette F., Collierville, TN

 

I found Outdoor Lighting Perspectives online when searching for exterior LED lighting. Man, am I ever glad I did. I took a deep breath and thought I’d at least see what professional lighting would cost. One quick e-mail to Outdoor Lighting Perspectives and the next business day I received a call from Mr. John Bowers the Owner of the company. Super nice guy! He scheduled an appointment to meet me at the house (after business hours to accommodate my work schedule), we walked the property, and he asked questions to identify what I was looking for. He quickly made his recommendations, explained in his opinion what would look good to highlight our home’s architectural elements, provided me with a no fuss estimate, and the work was done a few days later. I was very impressed with John, the products, the service, and the installation. No pressured sales pitches, he actually listens to what you want, provides recommendations, and even recommended we use the existing power transformers. This really sealed the deal for me. I was very impressed with the entire process. I highly recommend giving John a call if you are interested at all in landscape lighting. David D., Cordova, TN

 

John Bowers was very good to work with. Price was reasonable. Barry T., Eads, TN

 

Very nice to work with. Prompt response. They are what we have been looking for to maintain our outdoor lights. Richard J., Germantown, TN

Contractor or Craftsman: The Difference It Makes In Memphis Outdoor Lighting

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis has been crafting the best outdoor lighting in the area for many years.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis has been crafting the best outdoor lighting in the area for many years.

When it comes to picking an outdoor lighting designer, many homeowners are daunted by the task. This is not surprising. You want the best designer, the best products, and the best price. It’s no easy task, and despite all of your research, you will still probably question your decision several times over before the job is done. It’s only natural. There are many outdoor lighting providers and contractors in the Memphis area, and there are many factors you need to take into account when making your decision – experience, portfolio, products used, warranties offered, and of course, reputation. As you research, you will find that Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis ranks at the top of all of these categories. However, we also possess a characteristic that sets up apart from the rest – craftsmanship.

 

What is craftsmanship? Craftsmanship is a high degree of skill in the execution of an art or trade, but what a dictionary won’t tell is that the difference between a craftsman and someone simply skilled is his/her approach to the work. Craftsmen take pride in what they do. They are meticulous and invest extra time and effort into producing quality work. Craftsmen go the extra mile, they stay later than required, and they listen carefully to their clients to ensure the product meets the clients’ expectations.

 

We take the responsibility of creating your outdoor lighting seriously.

Dress Up Your Front Porch With An Elegant Memphis Outdoor Lighting Design

At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis, we talk a lot about lighting up your backyard. We love crafting unique looks for your landscaping, decks and patio and pools – but one area of the house offers the perfect canvas for creative mood and ambient lighting: Front porch lighting.

Sure, you may already have flood lights installed for security after dark, but we’re talking about transforming your outdoor seating area to create a truly one-of-a-kind atmosphere for you and your family to enjoy. Here are just a few ideas for how you can bring your Memphis front porch lighting to life:

Front Porch - After Outdoor Lighting

Give your guests a warm welcome with beautiful outdoor lighting on your front porch.

Welcome guests with a warm wash of light on the front porch.

In Memphis, front porch lighting is often the first thing guests notice about your home at night. If your front porch is cold and dark after the sun goes down, bring it back to life with creative outdoor lighting to help make your guests feel more at home. Our experts can use a variety of top-quality fixtures to illuminate the entire area in a gorgeous, tasteful way. Ask about the BB-08 deck light, one of our smaller fixtures with a big effect. Even if your porch has small, hard to reach nooks and crannies – this fixture and others from our collection can get the job done.

Relax with a soft glow around the seating area.

At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis, front porch lighting is one of our favorite things to design. Why? The front porch is center stage, it’s a common family favorite place to hang out, and its open-air feel makes it the perfect place to get creative with mood and ambient lighting. Consider the elegant effects a few small fixtures could have when placed expertly in this area. Exposed brick becomes a stunning work of art when highlighted after dark. String lighting creates an artistic divide between the interior and exterior of your home and helps tie your Memphis front porch lighting seamlessly together with landscape lighting, patio lighting and other backyard features.

Spotlights on your home accentuate its best features

Outdoor lighting timers add even more security to your home.

Use timers to make it look like you’re always home.

An outdoor flood light is great to help boost your security when you’re away from home, but consider how much more convincing it is to set your entire Memphis front porch lighting system on a timer. That way, even if you have to work late at the office a few nights or go on vacation it doesn’t just look like someone’s home – it looks like someone deliberately turned on those lights and may even be sitting in that area.  Ask one of our professionals about how you can set your front porch lighting on a timer to give your home security an even bigger boost after dark.

For each and every design at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis, front porch lighting depends entirely on the individual home. Call us today for a free consultation, and we’ll help give one of your favorite parts of your home an even more beautiful, elegant look when the sun goes down.

What’s Better than a Fireworks Display in the Sky? Memphis Outdoor Lighting at Your Home

Memphis outdoor lighting lights up your yard like fireworks in the sky

I don’t know if you have already begun to hear the pop, see the sparks and the flashes of color speckling the sky but some Memphis residents have been testing their fireworks in preparation of the 4th of July celebration.  It’s tough to not stop what you are doing to view the spectacular array of light in the sky during this time.  Light has an intense effect on how we feel in regards to so many things.  And while fireworks are temporary, adding Memphis outdoor lighting to your home and yard can yield that feeling night after night.

Memphis outdoor lighting does more than just improve the look of your outdoor spaces; it actually enhances the entire atmosphere.  Think about your outdoor living spaces in the dark and then think about them beautifully illuminated, the light catching your eye, your colorful geraniums displayed at night, light shimmering off your pool’s water.  Just like fireworks in the sky, your friends and family will have a hard time looking away from the gorgeous effects from your outdoor lighting.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives - Benham Pool Party

Every client, every space and every installation is like a night sky to us at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis.  We are able to choose the outdoor lighting fixtures like firework professionals choose aerial repeaters, brocades and chrysanthemums.

Warm washes of ambient light artfully displayed, dramatic shadows craftily revealed and textures, dimensions and colors cleverly exhibited all to enhance your home and extend the enjoyment of your outdoor spaces.

Although fireworks only last a short time, your outdoor lighting system will continue to reveal the outdoor living spaces you’ve spent so much time developing for years to come. Night after night you will be able to experience a light display better than the Macy’s Fireworks Spectacular, all from the comforts of your home.
