Whether you just want a small light to give you a way to see your front door, or you have an architectural feature on your Palm Beach Gardens, Jupiter, West Palm Beach, Wellington, Palm Beach, Delray Beach, or surrounding area home that you want to showcase, the right outdoor lighting can make all the difference. When you are needing to shed a little light on things, call our team at Kasper Electrical to help situate and wire in the right lights for your needs. We’ve been doing this for more than 40 years and are sure to have the right answer for your project.
One of the best ways to determine where you would like to have some outdoor lighting on your property is to go out at night and check out the areas of your home in the dark. This will reveal several places where you may want to have specific lights added. For example, you may want to have some area lighting added to your driveway area by your garage, as well as the pathway leading up to your front door.
It’s possible that you may want to have a small light shining on your address marker at the end of your driveway to make it easier for people to find your location if they are coming at night. You may also want to highlight a particular flower bed, or you have a sculpture that you want to accent with lighting. Your nighttime review will help give you the right perspective on where you really want and need lights on your property.
When you are looking at adding outdoor lighting, you will have three types of lighting to choose from, which mirrors indoor lighting. There is the general lighting category to just provide some light for a particular area. There is task lighting where you may want more intense light if you are doing specific things; for the outdoors, perhaps that is grilling food. Finally, there is accent lighting which is used to highlight specific features, such as a fountain.
You will need to keep in mind that any outdoor lighting fixtures you use on your Palm Beach Gardens, Jupiter, West Palm Beach, Wellington, Palm Beach, Delray Beach, or surrounding area home should be rated for outdoor use. Moisture and winds are the main culprits that they will have to deal with, so be sure your fixtures are meant for outdoor use. Also keep in mind any local ordinances about directing light in specific ways, such as having your lights facing downward to minimize light pollution.
