Illuminate Focal Points and Architecture
According to real estate rules, the better a property looks from the curb, the more valuable that property is. When you showcase the best features of your home and landscaping, you can create an unmatched aesthetic effect that helps your home stand out from the rest.
Think beyond task lighting for paths and entryways; illuminate tall trees, garden beds, perimeter plantings, fountains, and unique architectural features of your façade. Though passersby likely can’t see your backyard from the curb, you can beautify your outdoor living spaces too with accent lights around the patio and deck, underwater pool lights, wall sconces, tree spotlights, and more.
Apply a Layered Lighting Scheme
The best landscape lighting designs comprise a combination of various light techniques for different effects. Just like your interiors feature task, ambient, and accent lighting, your exteriors should also feature these three elements if you want the result to be exceptional and unique.
Task lighting is used for function, such as lighting pathways, steps, outdoor kitchens, pergolas, and outdoor dining areas to help you see and perform tasks in those areas.
Accent lighting adds focus to specific features you want to showcase, like statues, outdoor artwork, special plants, and more. Like we mentioned above, this type of lighting adds beauty, appeal, and distinction to your property.
Ambient lighting helps create balance within the lighting design by carrying the onlooker’s view from one area of your landscaping to the next. Without overwhelming the design, soft ambient light like wash lighting or downlighting offers the finishing touches to complete a look.
Create Ambiance with Tunable LEDs
You can truly set your property apart when you take advantage of tunable LEDs from Colorbeam as part of your landscape lighting system. Colorbeam allows you to control and tune the color temperature and intensity of your light fixtures with ease to create a specific ambiance for your outdoor spaces.
Tune the fixtures around seating areas to the color and intensity of candlelight to offer a relaxing atmosphere while you dine under the stars, but keep tree downlights cooler and brighter to mimic the enchanting glow of moonlight. Get creative with blues and purples in and around the pool, and celebrate holidays in style with greens, reds, and pinks. Colorbeam offers seamless tunability and flicker-free dimming that grants homeowners complete control over their spaces.
