Your vacation home is meant to be a home away from home. When it comes to turning it into a luxurious get away, outdoor lighting can be the perfect enhancement you’ve been searching for. This past week, we installed outdoor lighting for family who just bought their own personal oasis on Ocean Isle Beach, their getaway home from New Jersey. Everything about the home was brilliant… except for the outdoor lighting. Half the lights weren’t fully functioning while the other half were looking very old. Wanting the very best, he came and entrusted his vacation home’s vision to us. He couldn’t have made a better choice. We wasted no time in putting our best foot forward to create the outdoor lighting design he deserved.
The work done on his vacation home was some of our best yet. There were 24 lights installed in total. Outdoor fixtures were creatively placed in the front and the back of the home with a combination of path and well lights. The pergola and deck out back looked simply stunning beneath quality deck lights. It paralleled the newly lit pool area and stunning palm trees out front. The best qualities of the home were magnified through landscape lighting. We also cleaned up the old wiring where we could and replaced the other with our heavy gauge wire. We were able to reuse their current transformer with the upgraded LED fixtures we installed. The home owner insisted on LED lighting due to its longevity and productivity. LED lighting outlasts any halogen bulb on the market. It is not only cost efficient but brilliantly bright.
One of the best installments was an astronomical timer. This piece of technology will save you time and
money, two things we all could use more of. It uses your GPS coordinates to perfectly sync your outdoor lighting system with the natural lighting outside. By providing the timer with said coordinates, as well as the current date, it will automatically adjust your lights to match the season. There will be no need to manually work your landscape lighting system. The astronomical timer will turn them on and off at the precise time to match sunrise and sunset throughout the varying times of the year.
Your vacation home deserves as much love and attention as your permanent one; especially if it’s here in the Wilmington area. You’ll be stunned at the beauty outdoor lighting can bring to it when done by the experts here at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Wilmington.
