When we talk about outdoor lighting fixtures, most of us think about landscape lighting fixtures. We forget about the ones that built into the design of the house’s exterior: the front porch light, the lanterns by the garage, the flood light that blinds everyone, but lights up the whole back yard. These fixtures are there to serve a utilitarian purpose. And some of them are attractive; designed to complement the house’s architecture. They are not “landscape” lighting, but they are part of the outdoor lighting and need to be taken into account when designing your landscape lighting, or outdoor lighting system.
Are these hardwired fixtures attractive to you? They might have come with the house when you bought it, but that doesn’t mean you love them. Or perhaps you did love them . . . 10 or 15 years ago. If you’ve outgrown them, they’re kind of faded looking, or you’re just tired of looking at them, consider updating these fixtures. You have the perfect opportunity to create unity across the board with all your outdoor fixtures by replacing them with something that complements the fixtures you want to put into your landscape lighting.
Additionally, we will take into consideration the amount and type of light they put out. Perhaps they are too bright, or the warmth of the color is incorrect. We may suggest different bulbs then. This helps us create a unified and consistent look. Because all the fixtures are a part of your home’s exterior appearance, and we want that to be as beautiful as possible!
When you decide to add landscape lighting to your outdoor decor, don’t forget to look at your existing fixtures to see what can be kept, what should go, and how they will all work together to make your home its most beautiful!
