Architectural Lighting

A small outdoor lighting investment makes a big impact.

When you analyze the cost of your home, you’ve spent a considerable sum to provide an attractive exterior. Yet that investment yields very little return after nightfall. (And doesn’t nightfall begin before 6 p.m. most of the winter?) Your home’s exterior sits in the shadows, unappreciated and perhaps even a little scary. After all, who knows what could be lurking in the depths of those shadows?

Low-voltage architectural lighting remedies that situation. A skillfully designed architectural lighting plan can have your home looking even more impressive at night than it does during the day. Yet low-voltage lighting is extremely affordable. Call us today for a free evening demonstration at your home. 205-991-LITE(5483)

Light adds safety Your outdoor lighting is as functional as it is attractive. Eliminating hiding places, particularly near access points such as ground-level windows, makes your home unattractive to thieves. And illuminating walkways reduces the chance of your family or visitors tripping on uneven surfaces.

Architectural lighting unleashes terra cotta’s inner glow. Some surfaces, such as terra cotta, possess a lustrous depth that lends a warm, rich feeling. Careful illumination is essential for capturing the full effect. Here, the warm, earthen tones almost appear to glow as the subtle light caresses the gently textured surface of the facade.
