Make Christmas Special With Landscape Uplighting!
One of the most heartwarming things about the holiday season is seeing the festive home and exterior landscape lighting throughout the neighborhoods, brightening up the area.
The infamous Clark Griswold might be a Christmas light inspiration for some, but uplighting can be equally beautiful and an interesting option for those who seek an easier and more sophisticated approach to decorating - and to stay off the roof.
Exterior lights installed by professional electrical contractors can create dramatic effects to accentuate ornaments and decorations from the ground.
What Is Uplighting?
Uplighting is a type of landscape light installation that highlights features on a house and around a property from the ground.
Using ground-level lights of various types, home features like prominent entryways, windows, and architectural elements are highlighted by pointing these beams upward like spotlights.
Uplighting, done with both white and colored lights, can be used to create an atmosphere around a property, increase home security, and also create a decorative effect.
Holiday Uplighting An Attractive Alternative to House Lights
When properly installed by an electrical contractor, uplighting can be an appealing alternative to the standard roof and window lights that are found on many homes during the holiday season.
Landscape light installations for uplighting are easier to set up than house and roof lighting as well as much safer to install plus there is no chance of causing damage to the roofing system either.
But for those who like to go all out during the holidays, uplighting can also be used in conjunction with the traditional house and roof lights to make the decorative effect even greater.
What Are Some Great Holiday Landscape Light Installation Ideas?
There are some wonderful ways that homeowners hiring electrical contractors to install their exterior lighting can use uplighting to make their homes look festive for the holidays.
A favorite way is to decorate trees and bushes with ornaments and set up standalone decorations on the lawn, then illuminate them with upward-pointing ground lights.
Dramatic doorways and windows featuring beautiful wreaths are brought to life with spot uplighting.
A precious pine tree decorated for Christmas can be the centerpiece of it all with uplighting from all sides to make the tree look merry and bright.
Landscape lighting is also the perfect option for illuminating walkways so that holiday guests can arrive safely at a welcoming, well-lit entryway.
There is no limit to the number and types of holiday decorations that can be used when illuminating them all with ground lights.
In fact, uplighting makes it possible to create an even more elaborate decorative display without relying on thousands of tiny, energy-consuming light bulbs to make it all shine.
A few well-placed ground fixtures can make sparkly decorations shine better than any strung lights can.
Get Festive This Year with A Landscape Light Installation
Decorating for the holidays is a fun time each year to make the house look beautiful at Christmastime.
This year, try something a little different than stringing bulbs on the roof and avoid the danger that comes with it.
Uplighting with landscape light installations that highlight decorations and other features is a great look with a luxurious feel to it, all without the roof lights.
An experienced electrical contractor can get landscape lights installed quickly and easily to illuminate decorations throughout the property.
