When it comes to a beautiful landscape design, the way you light it up at night can make or break the overall mood and atmosphere you are trying to achieve. Here are a few tips on how to use outdoor LED lighting to create an inviting space that you and your guests will both love.
- Be selective. If you light up the entire space, it is difficult to focus on one single area. You lose any drama or visual interest that your landscape might otherwise have. Instead, identify the areas of your outdoor space that you want to highlight, and then install lighting that specifically illuminates that one feature or area.
- Choose the best light source. There are multiple lighting options on the market today. The type of light, the color, the intensity, these all combine to determine how effective your lighting design will be. At Sunthin LED, we specifically choose to use LED landscape lighting, because we believe it has the best combination of flexibility, features and options for our clients.
- Choose a color. In the past, outdoor lighting generally meant white light, unless you were a high-end specialty or commercial location. Today, with LED landscape lighting, however, color is most definitely an option. You can create dramatic effects that will transform your outdoor space into a wonderland at night, just by carefully using colored LED lighting.
- Have a plan. Once you know what areas of your outdoor space you want to light up, and you have chosen the lighting technology you plan to use, spend some time planning how to install it for the best possible results. Do you want to light up that tree from the ground up? Do you want more of a spotlight effect? Are you installing path lighting? Do you want your lighting recessed into the ground, or do you want it to stand out as a feature in and of itself? By planning out how you want the final effect to look, you can save yourself time and hassle down the road.
