Our Bryn Mawr, PA, Outdoor Lighting Design Adds Character and Safety to Property

Bryn Mawr, PA, Outdoor LightingOutdoor Lighting Perspectives of Delaware Valley is excited to give you a peek at a recent Bryn Mawr, PA, project that consists of a large outdoor lighting scheme that is taking us some time to finish since we have to work closely with the local township for approvals on design from the architectural committee. The project comprised the addition of 10 facade lights so the front of the home and all its architectural details pop in the evening sky. We uplighted the face of the home and even downlit it from above with several gutter mounted fixtures in this design, too. This tactic gives a home a full, three-dimensional effect with immense character.

Bryn Mawr, PA LED Lampost conversionA crucial element of this outdoor lighting design encompassed converting the existing carriage lamp posts to a more cost-effective low-voltage amperage. The lamp posts were of importance to the family because they have a very long and winding driveway that they wanted to provide additional security to without hampering the overall aesthetics and look. Now they get the benefit of energy friendly fixtures with a beautiful traditional flair that compliments their home with the added feeling of security and safety. If you’ve got existing fixtures that are in great shape and you want to keep, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Delaware Valley can show you a budget friendly way to update them and convert them to be energy-efficient while not having to splurge on brand new lights.

Bryn Mawr, PA LED Lampost conversionIt doesn’t matter what size your project goals are—small or large—we can work within your budget and even break your plan down into smaller phases so the work is staged over time as your financial plan and lifestyle changes. We can give you a lot of light for your buck to start off so your home and property does not have a sparse outdoor lighting look, and as you have the ability and desire to add to it, we can increase what you have thanks to the we employ. At any stage, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Delaware Valley can tie in multiple transformers and locations on the property together with modules so that they can be easily controlled with just one timer. This means that we can extend the size of any outdoor lighting landscape system whenever you want without compromising the initial phases of the plan. It doesn’t cost you a bundle to have to change anything; we can simply and easily add on to what’s already been done without any major upheaval. It’s a very cost effective way of expanding and enhancing your system as time and money allows with skimping.

Bryn Mawr,, PA, outdoor lighting

You can see for yourself that the results are stunning and the look and fixtures are a great blend of following the requirements of the township’s architectural requests coupled with ensuring the home’s lighting plan matched the overall style of the home and the family’s outdoor lifestyle. We can happily work within the requirements of your HOA or town to make everyone happy.

Welcome 2016 in a whole new light, with a little help from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Delaware Valley!

Welcome 2016 in a whole new light, with a little help from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Delaware Valley!

Welcome 2016 in a whole new light, with a little help from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Delaware Valley!

2016 is here and it’s time to make one of your New Year’s resolutions happen right now! Adding beautiful, and practical,  outdoor lighting to your home is equally as vital as all those other New Year’s resolutions you have promised to do such as lose a couple of pounds, hit the gym or finally get that new kitchen installed.

This is the ideal time of year to get a fresh and new outdoor lighting system mounted, or extend a present one. If you’ve put off lighting those dimmer nooks and crannies in your property, you can supplement your existing system to give more light so that you have a more robust effect all over your outdoor setting. Adding more light intensifies the general security of your property by brightening up zones that could be a possible target for a potential burglar, and good lighting will likely have them steering clear of your home and heading elsewhere.
The front façade of your home and entryway are usually what homeowners illuminate in the evening, and they often overlook their backyard—this is a super chance to add some terrific character and ambiance to your rear property so that is does not sit in a pool of blackness.

Wilmington Delaware gorgeous home with outdoor lights

You are missing out on the opportunity to enjoy a nightscape view of your property in the evening light if your backyard isn’t lit up properly. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Delaware Valley’s lighting architects can partner with you to design a remarkable view of your backyard while you are lounging inside and looking out your windows any night of the year. When spring arrives, you will be prepared for outdoor entertaining on the deck or patio with after-sundown grilling and dining, playing football in the yard and hanging by the pool. Don’t wait until summer gets here to get on Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Delaware Valley’s hectic calendar—get some new fixtures and wires in the ground now when there is no disruption and your trees, flowers and shrubs are dormant.

Pergola inspired Wilmington Columned Pool Lighting Improving your outdoor lighting is a New Year’s resolution that is worth sticking to because it increases the value of your home in many ways. Your property and home score unbelievable twilight flair, plus it adds safety for family and visitors when they navigate your driveway and they can get to your entryway without falling. Custom outdoor lighting also makes the most of your outdoor family fun time since you can continue most any activity even after the sun goes down. Daily errands such as taking the garbage out, walking your pup, or getting your mail in the later hours are made easier by adding well thought out outdoor landscape lighting system. The paybacks that good outdoor lighting adds to a property and your routine are countless!

Spectacular Delaware Valley Deck and Patio Lighting
Of all the New Year resolutions you can undertake, landscape lighting will certainly be the easiest thanks to partnering with Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Delaware Valley. Unlike other major home improvement projects, it can be installed quickly and you won’t have to temporarily live in a motel or move in with family. You won’t have to worry about dust, tools all over the place or even have to worry about not having a functioning shower for a month while construction is happening. It usually just takes just a few days to get a full system installed to give you a terrific effect and added lifestyle benefits. We are happy to work within your budget, so unlike other home improvement projects, you won’t need a bank loan either.

Outdoor Lighting in Swarthmore, PA — the perfect recipe for evening enchantment!

Swarthmore, PA, outdoor lightingNew construction homes are always a fun one for us to design an outdoor lighting scheme for as we’ve got a clean slate to work with and we can lay everything out correctly with the proper equipment that will last for seasons to come. This Swarthmore, PA, home was a stunner so Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Delaware Valley had great bones to work with to illuminate right off the bat.

We knew immediately the homeowner would want to play up the brick façade of the home since it offered a ton of texture that would be super interesting in the evening light. There’s just so much interesting details to this home that we wanted to make sure to make all the aspects jump with dimension and character. The entryway has a majestic feel and is clearly visible to guests, and a step up to the doorway can be seen so that it is safe to traverse.

Swarthmore, PA, outdoor lighting

The roofline and chimneys now have a grand look in the outlined shadows against the sky that creates the feel of a much larger scale. Details like the dentil molding, shutters and boxed windows pop in the night. Good lighting is not just about adding light, but it’s also about the subtle inter-play of shadow as well. When both those aspects co-mingle properly, the effect and mood is like no other.

Moonlighting in trees in Swarthmore, PAThe homeowner wanted something a little different than traditional mooonlighting for the trees that line the backyard.  We used a little bit of a theatrical twist with a technique that is used as an alternative to moonlighting and looks less intentional thanks to the way the light subtly shines up through the branches and tree canopy. In the hands of our lighting experts, this technique casts an ethereal glow that adds a truly romantic flair that is otherworldly and elegant. It plays up the texture of the tree trunks and makes the leaves and branches shimmer after dark.

Of course every new installation we do at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Delaware Valley comes with a free maintenance and repair plan your first year to make sure everything is working perfectly.  This plan includes the repair/reburying of any wire that has surfaced above ground, inspection and cleaning your transformer, a reset or check of you timer, straightening any fixtures that have been knocked down, moving fixtures or trimming plant overgrowth that is covering your fixtures and preventing proper illumination, and performing simple changes to enhance the effects of your lighting. Additionally, you get priority response and repairs on your system at any time with no additional service charge, too! And after the first year you can continue with this plan for the life of the system at a very reasonable rate. It’s good piece of mind with annual preventative care for your outdoor landscape system which has to work every night of the year!

It doesn’t matter to us if you want to have a brand new outdoor lighting design installed from scratch or if you want Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Delaware Valley to trick out an existing landscape lighting system. We will work within your budget and give you exactly the illumination look you are trying to achieve. We can flexibly work in stages and add to your current system at a later date, too. Even if your original system was installed by another outdoor lighting company, we can retro-fit, add or change anything you want to get your dream lighting plan.

Does your outdoor lighting timer measure up now that DST is “back”?

DST is fast approaching!Like the Cher song title implies,  this past weekend it was time to “Turn Back Time” on November 1st for the one hour time change from daylight savings. Since we lost an hour, you can expect nightfall to edge in earlier as fall is in the air. Interestingly, Daylight Savings Time came about Germany during the First World War to retain fuel sources. America and other countries followed suit as well as an energy savings mechanism, and consequently began a global time change every six months.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Delaware CountyOf course, these time changes can create a pesky problem with those of us with clocks that must be altered and outdoor lighting timers that have to be reset since evening comes earlier. You don’t want your kids to come home from school to a scary house set in darkness; or arrive from work to a driveway that is dangerous because the visibility is low. For years, the landscape lighting industry has utilized electrical timers with little switches that make your lights turn on or off when it trips over a designated switch. Other timers available were complex ones that needed to be programmed every time you wanted to make even a minute change like simply adding or reducing the time to start by an hour. Ugh!

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Delaware Valley offers customers astronomical timers on our landscape lighting systems that  use GPS to identify where your home is and it automatically adjusts for Daylight Savings Time without you ever having to lift a finger or re-program anything. Cool huh?

Delaware Valley outdoor lighting

Outdated manual timers are a pain  because they require a re-set as the days get shorter or longer. That’s quite the hassle to remember to do that every few months and how to program it. Astronomical timers remove all the worry and fuss of seasonal time changes because they adjust themselves. No need to deal with the aggravation of dials or buttons anymore! You tell your astronomical timer where you live and at what time you’d like your lights to turn on, and it takes care of the rest. They even have a battery backup that saves your settings if the power goes out, too. It certainly doesn’t get easier than that.

Delaware Valley outdoor lightingSince astronomical timers make the most use out of the available daylight hours and know exactly when to turn on and adjust automatically, they offer a great savings because you are not wasting power illuminating your home and garden when it’s not needed. The payback can be quick with these automated timers, and they make sense for your wallet and the environment.

Delaware Valley Outdoor Lighting Covers Your Home and Property from every Angle

 

When considering the areas to illuminate as part of your anticipated outdoor lighting design, think of each facet of your property as a pie

When considering the areas to illuminate as part of your anticipated outdoor lighting design, think of each facet of your property as a pie

When considering the areas to illuminate as part of your anticipated outdoor lighting design, think of your property as a pie—the front of your home, the back, the landscape surrounds and the sides all make up a “piece” of that pie and when combined together they make up the whole pie. Most clients typically come to us to add lighting to the front of their homes to illuminate the façade and front entryway of their home for alluring architectural curb appeal. The additional benefit of increased security thanks to dark corners and shadows being lit up to prevent thieves from approaching the property; and the increased safety thanks to visibility to prevent slips and falls. The front of your home is a great place to start your lighting plan without question, which lets you enjoy one piece of the pie — however, there is still much sweetness in having all facets of your outdoor environment illuminated.

However,  often what we see is that the rear of the house is often an afterthought, which is interesting since most of our customers tell us that they spend the MAJORITY of their time in their backyards. Once we show them the beauty and instant charm that backyard lighting provides and how it increases the use of their entertaining and outdoor living area(s) dramatically—they can’t wait to jump in. Outdoor lighting naturally extends the use of your deck, patio, porch and pool areas well after the sun goes down so the family fun can continue. Practical task lighting around your barbeque or over your outdoor kitchen enables you to cook outdoors no matter what the hour, and there is no guessing game involved in terms of figuring out if your steak is perfectly cooked. Summer evening swims and entertaining outdoors with friends is easy when everyone can navigate easily and feels comfortable hanging out without having to make a mess indoors.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Delaware Valley will provide you with a turn-key design that fits your family lifestyle. We can tackle the project in stages as your budget and time allows and we work within your schedule. Many of our clients start with illuminating the front of their home to garner the benefits it provides, and then proceed to add landscape lighting all around their property once they see the added value it creates.

You will see the difference when the perimeter of your property is lit and watch how it comes to life. Even as colder weather approaches, there is no reason to look out your windows into a sea of blackness. You can look out your kitchen and living room windows and still enjoy a breathtaking view of your outdoor areas as you sit curled up inside with a good book and a cup of hot tea. We can create a postcard view where we can magically light up an ornamental tree, a water feature and create a moonlight feel that will pull you to your windows. If you are lucky enough to have an outdoor fireplace or fire pit, we can add additional lighting around these areas that will enable you to grab a jacket and roast marshmallows with the kids and swig down a cup of hot chocolate for a family friendly gathering despite nightfall. Let us show you how we can transform your backyard and increase the usability of your outdoor living zones.

We can move fixtures that may no longer work in their previous areas, retrofit existing lighting to low consumption LED fixtures or we can add automation so that you can create different moods with the simple push of a button. No project is too big or too small, and we can work within budgets of all sizes.

Outdoor lighting is all we do and we do it best!

Outdoor lighting is all we do and we do it best!

All we do at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Delaware Valley is one thing—and that’s  outdoor lighting. It’s our specific expertise as the world’s largest full-service outdoor lighting company, and it’s all we do. We use only high quality American made fixtures that are commercial grade. These are not your average home improvement center type lighting fixtures made out of cheap plastic materials with a short shelf life and skimpy wiring. We service and maintain everything we install and you can be assured that we will provide you with a strong customer service after the installation. We promise that we will be responsive and won’t leave you hanging.
