Hardscape Lighting Ideas for your Des Moines Property
Curb appeal is a substantial portion of your property’s value and charm. When the sun goes down, though, the visuals are concealed by darkness. This is where hardscape lighting enters the fray. Aside from keeping the exterior area visible, it also provides safety for occupants and guests entering and exiting the premises. The following are some viable lighting solutions.
1. Wall Washing
Wall washing is a technique in which lights are used to light walls and pivotal features, making them the focal points. This is a great strategy if you have masonry and rockeries you want to really stand out in the night hours.
Let’s look at some of the popular styles of available water features.
2. In-Ground Lighting
In-ground lighting is an alternative to floodlights. Floodlights brighten nearly the entire area and can take away from the allure of pertinent features you want as focal points. In-ground lighting is more subtle, and you can use multiple fixtures to light concrete walkways or other features you wish to highlight.
3. Solar Lamps
Solar lamps have the clear advantage of not adding significantly to your electric bill. These lights softly illuminate during the evening without you having to switch them on and off. Solar lamps are available in varying styles, from lamp poles to exterior chandeliers.
4. Pendant Lights
Pendant lights hang from the roof eaves. We recommend steering away from conventional interior pendant lights and aiming for nature-based materials, such as rattan or burled wood.
5. Hurricane Candles
Hurricane candles are traditional candles enclosed inside a glass case to safeguard the flame from the wind. This provides a warm and intimate ambiance.
