Vacation in Your Own Backyard--Part III

By Tracy Lanzilotti | Published on January 20,2012 at 2:34PM

Finally, you are ready to put the cherry on top of your award-winning work. With finishing touches such as the proper lighting, all of the laughter, fun, and joyous times shared with family and friends during the day, can just as easily transition well into the evening. Who wouldn’t want that?

There are many simple solutions to convey a warm and inviting atmosphere even after the sun has gone down. Here are four ways to create an unforgettable aesthetically-pleasing ambiance:

1. Think soft silhouettes. Select lighting that will cast a natural glow, rather than strong, overpowering flood lighting. Investigate installing a dimmer switch to give even more control over the evening ambiance.

2. Subtlety is the secret. With a more extensive selection to choose from, your outdoor lighting does not have to be an eye-soar anymore. Styles available such as recessed lighting, rail lights, post cap lights, etc., one can easily balance a seamlessly beautiful finishing touch with safety, appropriately illuminating rails, stairways, and paths.

3. Go Green and save green. Your new outdoor space will allow you to enjoy the outdoors like never before; why not show your appreciation by giving back. Install LED deck lighting, which operates for up to 40,000 hours of life, not to mention preventing voltage drops, so each light is equally as bright, and has been shown to use 75% less energy! That’s good news for both the environment and for your wallet!

4. Kick back and relax! Be sure to invest in a lighting collection that can be installed in just one weekend, as well as one that is weatherproof and salt air resistant, to protect and provide a strong investment return. After all, you want to make sure your lighting is guaranteed to retain its “like new” condition, so you can enjoy your outdoor living space for years to come!

With these design ideas, your outdoor living space will be the talk of the town! When preparing to book your next vacation, look no further than what is just beyond the door to your very own backyard. All you need now is a Jimmy Buffet record and the tiny umbrella!
