Don’t Leave Your Best Work in the Dark

Coastal Source Landscape Lighting Puts Your Designs in the Best Light

Designers, architects, and builders take pride in their work. They sweat many details to ensure their designs fit the overall style they are trying to achieve. Good designers go the extra mile to add a little detail that may go undiscovered for some time but will be a pleasant surprise that adds to a client's continued enjoyment.

A lot of work may go into the outside design of a home, but often people don’t get to appreciate the detail. When the sun goes down, much of that detail might be lost. Similarly, the investment in outside spaces like patios and gardens may not be as visible either. With proper planning, that work can stand out as it should.

We appreciate the night sky in the Woodlands, so we don’t want to light up properties like the Vegas strip. But the judicious use of a variety of lighting styles and techniques can elevate the beauty of your work in a way that provides a totally different ambiance at night. We work with Coastal Source for outdoor landscape lighting because of the extraordinary quality and variety they bring to lighting. Read on for some lighting ideas to incorporate into your next project.

Add Drama with Landscape Lighting

Heighten the Sophistication of Your Home Designs

A great home design incorporates many ideas. There’s the exterior view; how it looks from the street and its curb appeal. How do the windows play, letting light inside, but also how they look and balance the outside look. What unique exterior finishes or features distinguish this home and makes it stand out?

As a designer, architect, or builder, you know these things better than we do.  But we do understand home technology and the role that lighting can play in differentiating a home, highlighting its best aspects, and creating the right ambiance for a home. Any good photographer knows the role that light plays in capturing an image. With the proper lighting, what could be a mundane photo can turn into a spectacular and memorable picture.

Landscape lighting can have that effect on the exteriors of a property. Let us postulate this: if you include the effect of landscape lighting from the beginning on your next home project in the Woodlands, you will multiply the impact of your imaginative designs.  Intrigued?
