With the warmer months just around the corner, homeowners in Forest Hill are starting to think about the prospect of entertaining outside. No backyard barbecue, birthday party, or weekend dinner with the family is complete without spending some time under the stars. However, you will likely find that natural lighting leaves much to be desired after the sun goes down. Installing outdoor lighting is one way to make the most of your outdoor entertaining space, and Lehnhoff’s Supply offers high-quality lighting fixtures from CAST Lighting to add the perfect finishing touch to your Forest Hill property.
Set the Stage With Area Lighting
When designing a layout for your new lighting system, you will often start by selecting wash lights or area lights. These fixtures are designed to illuminate a large area, and they are essential in creating the perfect entertaining space in your yard. Area lighting is an essential aspect of lighting design that creates a basic level of illumination upon which you can build. Once you have settled on area lighting, you can round out your lighting design with path lights and fixtures that highlight your hardscape elements.
Highlight Your Landscape With Outdoor Lighting
Another way that homeowners in Forest Hill utilize outdoor lighting is to use more focused lighting to accentuate trees, architecture, and other elements of your home’s landscape. Whether you choose lights that are mounted to the ground, your trees, or your home’s architecture, lighting fixtures from CAST Lighting make it easy to design a stunning outdoor lighting display. Highlighting your landscape with light gives you a gorgeous backdrop for your next party and ensures that your property stays beautiful 24/7.
Outdoor Lighting Boosts Security
While many homeowners choose to install lighting for aesthetic reasons, outdoor lighting can serve some essential functions in terms of home security. A robust outdoor lighting system eliminates shadows and dark spots on your property that criminals can use to hide. As a result, lighting makes your home a less attractive target. Additionally, outdoor lighting systems often run on a timer. This can make it seem like your home is occupied (and thus protected), even when you are out of town.
