The right landscape lighting will transform your Sarasota, Florida, home from a drab and dark space to one that twinkles with an inviting air. Well-placed lights can make your home more attractive, easier to find, and safer to navigate. Whether you want to highlight a special part of the garden for soothing evening strolls, or you’re lighting up the deck for rousing parties, the right installations will make all the difference.
Stairs can create a tripping hazard when night falls and these features aren’t visible. Step lights are the perfect answer, offering the combined benefits of enhanced safety and aesthetic appeal. Install lights directly on the vertical part of the steps with a slight downward cast so they shine onto the surface of each stair.
Spotlights are an eye-catching choice anywhere that you want to highlight an aspect of your landscaping. Shine them on trees, fountains, sculptures, and attractive architectural features to light up your home in a fresh new way. Set at ground level, these are an unobtrusive choice you can tuck away just about anywhere.
One of the latest trends in exterior lighting, hardscape lights are mounted on or in the wall at the very top. The light shines downward, offering a bright wash that illuminates the home without the noticeable intrusion of a large light fixture. Done right, the installation itself is hardly noticeable. You’ll simply see the glowing wall illumination from a well-concealed source along the porch, deck, or another part of the home. This type of lighting typically relies on LED bulbs, making it an eco-friendly choice as well.
