Shorter Days Mean Less Sun, Not Less Light
Daylight savings time means the sun goes down earlier and the days get shorter...in our world, that means more we get more time to light the night with outdoor lighting! Our moonlights, up lights and path lights offer warm, natural lighting that enhances the beauty of your home or business. Call us today at 888-336-4999 to arrange a design consultation, or to update your current system.
Deck the Halls...and Lobbies, Offices, Courtyards and Lawns
It is time to start thinking about holiday lighting, and Outdoor Illumination is ready to turn your home or business into a magically lit winter wonderland. We offer turn-key service from concept design to installation and removal. Our designers will custom-design your holiday lighting and install it in December and then take it down after the New Year. We even have storage options if you don't have room on your property. And just like your holiday shopping, remember that it is never too early to start planning your holiday lighting project. Let us get to work on putting the “twinkle” in your holiday spirit.
The Outdoor Illumination Crew Shines Bright
At Outdoor Illumination, we are proud of the outdoor lighting projects we have created over the years. But there is nothing that we are more proud of than our dedicated install and service team. They have more than 100 years of experience and expertise in outdoor lighting, and we think they are the best in the business!
Dramatic Lighting Enhances Beautiful Bethesda Residence
In the outdoor lighting business, it is generally the commercial lighting projects that generate the most publicity. However, we wanted to take this opportunity to share one of our favorite residential projects with our customers. This contemporary home, nestled in the woods features a secret poolscape and mature Crape Myrtle trees throughout the property.
To create a natural moonlight effect 365 nights per year, our crews installed High Intensity Discharge fixtures that were carefully placed so that they did not jeopardize the fragile root masses of the giant tree canopy. By combining up and down lighting, we minimized hot spots that could have been created by the downlights being absorbed by the leaf canopies.
The finished product is an amazingly inviting space in which subtle illumination is used to create a welcoming “outdoor room” effect without having to incorporate floodlights or other glare-producing lighting options.
