The leaves are changing colors and the temperature is quickly dropping to our much loved sweater weather. Fall is finally here. Before we know it, some of our favorite holidays will be upon us. We all know, however, that with the change of the season comes the change in daylight hours. This means it will begin to get dark earlier in the day, causing your visibility to become decreased and your ability to see your walkway when you arrive home to be challenging. It also means there is a higher chance of you or one of your visitors slipping on those wet leaves or that black ice patch. That is Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Chattanooga recommend getting professionally installed path lights for your home.

Safety is a common concern when we are designing outdoor lighting for a home. We walk through the property and find the key areas that need illumination, such as  pathways and stairs, so that each step taken is visible and nothing goes unseen. This helps prevent trip hazards and slips. Many of our clients have tried to use solar lights bought from local hardware stores to solve these issues. They quickly learn, however, that not only do these types of lights have low quality lighting but they also do not last longer than a few seasons.

 

 

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Chattanooga will only use the highest quality lighting to ensure that you will have your pathway lit up for years to come. We have a wide variety of path lights. They come in all different sizes and shapes to make certain that they will match the look and feel of your home. Due to the high quality of our outdoor lighting, you may only need a small number of light fixtures to get the job done, unlike solar lighting.

Attraction Lights pic 2We also offer sculpture lighting. They give off the same security and safety, but have more of a creative look to them. These lights add a great element of beauty and creativity to places like your pathway as well as gardens and patios. Like the pathway lighting, these also come in all different shape and sizes as well as unique shadowing.

If you are interested in getting pathway lighting this fall, give us a call to set up a free consultation at 423.710.8645 or visit our website at http://chattanooga.outdoorlights.com/

Outdoor Lighting Charity

On Saturday May 20th, 2017 MDA hosted its seventh Annual Everyday Heroes Gala. The gala was an event supporting all the fallen heroes, as well as those who are currently battling ALS. The MDA Central Tennessee raises funds specifically for the local families living with muscle disease and provides and encourages a variety of ways for those families and others in the community to fight back together as a team. This community involvement brings greater awareness to those in need.

This year’s Everyday Heroes took place at the Chattanoogan. Everyone enjoyed a lovely night full of wine and beer, cocktails, delicious hors d’oeuvres, and photobooth fun all while bidding on the wonderful packages that were provided. All in all, the night was a great success and over $188,000 was raised for ALS research. Since its inception, the Everyday Heroes Gala has raised over $1 million dollars to go towards ALS research and MDA has raised over $344 million.

Mrs. Linehart of Signal Mountain was the prevailing bidder who went home with our outdoor lighting package for a steal of $900. The Linehart’s have been wanting to work with us on creating an outdoor lighting design for their house since December of 2015. They were very excited to finally pull the trigger. As for their lighting design, they are looking to install brass uplights across the front of their lovely home and highlight the cable above their front porch.

This was the first year Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Chattanooga participated in the event by donating an outdoor lighting package valued at $1500. The package included a lighting daytime consultation, 5 halogen up-lights, a transformer, labor, wire, a basic timer, and a lifetime warranty on all fixtures and the transformer.

If you are looking to get outdoor lighting and would like to set up a consultations with us, give us a call at 423-710-8645. We also offer free nighttime demonstrations to let you get a feel for what your lighting would look like without spending a penny.

Home maintenance can be tough to keep up with and an endless money pit.  Imagine the costs of painting your home, replacing siding, adding a stone walkway or simply hiring a landscaping company to freshen up your gardens.  The numbers add up quickly to thousands of dollars.

Let’s take a closer look at average costs associated with home improvements:

  • Bathroom remodel – $17,735
  • Minor Kitchen remodel – $18,500
  • Landscaping – $7500
  • Hardwood floors – $4500
  • Outdoor Lighting – $2500-3500

One upgrade many people skip over is outdoor lighting.  For as little as $2500 a homeowner can extend the curb appeal of their home well into the night.  Adding “up lights” to the architectural breaks of the home give the house depth, character and create a dramatic affect versus the dark homes in the neighborhood.  If you have already invested into landscaping such as trees and shrubs, why not display them in the evening when you and your neighbors are home to enjoy them?

Professional outdoor lighting can make a dramatic difference on the curb appeal and illumination of your home for surprisingly little investment when comparing to other household upgrades.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives offers complimentary night time lighting demonstrations.  Call 423.710.8645

Putting your home on the market? Not an easy feat in this ever changing market. Did you know that landscape lighting can add value, curb appeal and safety to your home and property?

First, the value factor. Landscape lighting is an investment in your home, and one that will surely add value and beauty. Professional lighting can show off your home’s architecture, beautiful façade, and high-quality craftsmanship. Let others see the gorgeous trees lit up on your property and the time you’ve spent working in the gardens. If you have a pool and deck, lighting can make all the difference when entertaining. Plus, you want to ensure the safety of your guests.

Second, let’s address the curb appeal factor. On dark, winter nights, landscape lighting can bathe your home and property in beautiful lighting that creates a warm and inviting atmosphere. Large trees, meticulous shrubbery and even the architecture of your home are all on full display for everyone to enjoy.

And on summer evenings, your gardens, deck, pool and pathways are well-lit and simply look spectacular. Show off your home’s assets. Don’t be afraid to make the outside as inviting as the inside of your home.

And last but not least, the safety and security of your home and property. Let’s face it, we have all missed a step or stumbled coming up to someone’s home. Don’t forget the basic rule of making sure family, friends and guests can clearly see where they’re walking on your pathways, steps and porches. And a well-lit home and surrounding property is a deterrent to burglars and unwanted guests. Even when you aren’t home, your lighting system can be programmed to turn on and off whenever you choose. Illuminate common dark areas such as side yards and garages too.

We are the nation’s largest, most trusted provider of outdoor landscape lighting. Our lighting experts will help you design a one-of-a-kind plan to fit your needs. We design and install deck, pool, patio, gazebo, landscaping, path, tree and holiday lighting. We offer a terrific warranty plan, top-notch customer service and quality brass and copper fixtures.

This hospitality landscape lighting project right outside of Chattanooga was one of our favorites.  Surrounded by picturesque mountain scenery, Black Creek Club is located in Black Creek Mountain Community, less than ten minutes from downtown Chattanooga.

The club was ranked in the Top 100 Best Residential Golf Courses in the U.S. by Golfweek. The full service club offers grand amenities such as golf, tennis, fine dining, event venue, swimming pools, tennis, walking trails and a dog park.

The objective was to showcase the stunning pool areas with tasteful landscape lighting while offering members and guests’ safety and security after dark. Our lighting designers suggested the decorative, tall lights for this particular area. The medium range bollard lights are available from 24 to 30 inches in height. We chose to use black fixtures for this project. They are also available in: polished stainless steel, brushed stainless steel, powder-coated standard bronze or dark green, or powder-coated in custom colors. The lights have a tempered glass lens and require a concrete mount.

The bollard lights (ideal for the hospitality industry) throw an even, round circle of light on the pathway for a more secure walking area. These taller than average landscape lights also helps prevent guests from tripping and falling over the smaller, less obtrusive ground fixtures.

For residential and hospitality outdoor lighting design and service, call us at 423.710.8645 for more information or to schedule a complimentary consultation.
