Here in Wilmington, we are lucky to live where we do, and we know that. The beach and the river are right down the road or even in our backyards. Many folks from all over the country would give anything to live in such a fantastic location. As peaceful and wonderful as it is to live on the Carolina coast, we still get stressed. Work can still be a pain, things still go wrong, and sometimes even with the crash of waves so nearby, it’s just hard to relax. That’s what makes the atmosphere at home so important. By returning to a place that is serene, lovely, and calm, you are able to relax and recharge so you can be at your best when you return to work. While there are many ways to create a peaceful home, outdoor lighting will make the most difference in your property by far.
Do you remember the last concert or theater show you attended? Lighting was probably a big component. By using light, the show director is able to manipulate the audience into feeling excitement, suspense, longing, and a wide range of other emotions. Light has a profound impact on how we feel. Not only does it provide visibility and assure us of what is in our environment, a well-designed outdoor lighting system can emphasize beauty and create a sense of calm that allows to you forget the cares of the day. This is accomplished with strategically placed fixtures that provide warm washes of light; draw attention to the trees, foliage, and flowers in your landscaping; and beckon you into the area.
The calming effects of outdoor lighting can begin even as you approach your property. Driveway, pathway, and entryway lighting will welcome you home, especially as the days begin to shorten and shadows around your home deepen. Out back, patio, porch, or deck lighting softly illuminate your sitting areas around tables or the fire pit. Your landscape and gardens come alive under a magical glow. Drink in hand, you walk out onto the dock, the boards bathed in just enough light to prevent missteps but not so much that it interferes with the moon’s reflection off of the water. With a deep breath, you forget the spreadsheets and schedules and just enjoy this beautiful coastal moment. Tomorrow, you’ll be better for it.
