How Our Ottawa Landscape Lighting Service Can Brighten Up Your Home in Winter

Many people consider landscape lighting to be a seasonal extravagance, and they couldn’t be more wrong.  Outdoor lighting is an investment in the security and aesthetics of your home year round.  Winter is known for being dark and dreary, so what better way to brighten your home and accent your holiday lighting than with landscape lighting?  Our Ottawa landscape lighting service will show you how to warm your heart on those cold days. 

The Benefits to Having Landscape Lighting in the Winter
Winter does not cut you off from your landscape lighting and there are reasons for keeping it on.  The list for having professional lighting during the cold months is a mile long, but here are the best points:

  • The sense of security that comes from knowing your house is well-lit in dark times (especially considering the shorter days and daylight savings time).
  • The beautiful accent it will add to your home.  Now imagine it softly illuminating freshly fallen snow.
  • Your brightly lit home will diminish the depressing feeling of going to work and coming home from work in the dark.
  • Since it’s darker for longer, your lights can come on earlier and stand out for longer. 
  • Professional lighting is a great addition to your holiday lights.

How Our Ottawa Landscape Lighting Service Can Brighten Up Your Dreary Exterior
There are a variety of methods that can be used to illuminate your home this winter.  Our Ottawa outdoor lighting experts recommend the following.

Enlighten Yourself with Low Voltage Lighting
The days of winter are typically quite cloudy and grey, so your house could probably use some all-day lighting.  Low voltage lighting can be used when the clouds darken the sky without making your home look like it belongs on the Las Vegas Strip.  Low voltage is a great option if you’re looking for a softer look that utilizes both shadow and light.

Customers also prefer low voltage options if they’re after a more natural look.  Low voltage lighting can cast off a moonlit look, as opposed to the glaring, bright lights some customers want to avoid.  This can help enhance the beautiful features of your home, while still providing the same security benefits. 

Light Up the Dark Areas
Those shadowy areas of your home will appear doubly so in the winter.  These areas are key for lighting in order to fend off trespassers.

Choose the Architectural and Landscaping Areas You Want to Feature
Every yard has beautiful aspects that deserve to be accented in the dark.  Use your Ottawa lighting systems to highlight them and you’ll do wonders for adding curb appeal to your home.  Some great ideas include using a blue light across your evergreen trees, or arranging the lights to enhance the silhouettes the branches of your trees give off.

During the winter, it’s not uncommon for icicles to freeze on people’s eaves troughs.  Turn these icicles into ice sculptures by placing some spotlights beneath the icicle lines.

Your home can be just as beautiful in the winter as it can in the summer.  Whether you’re playing up the effect of the recent winter snowfall or you’re adding to your Christmas lighting, we can help you achieve the look you’re after.  Contact our Ottawa landscape lighting service for more details.
