Kansas City winter isn’t far away and with the end of Daylight Saving “fall back” time change you may have noticed your home feeling increasingly gloomy, dark and generally less inviting when you pull up at the end of the work day. If you’re looking for a way to brighten your home in the evening and even add a little more curb appeal (by highlighting architectural focal points of your home), then Heinen can help. The solution: “Nightscaping” – courtesy of Heinen Landscape.
Your home is typically your biggest investment. Imagine it bathed in warm tones of light as you pull in the driveway after a long day at work. Nightscaping, also known as outdoor landscape lighting, consists of adding specific lighting (often LED) to accent trees, landscape, walkways, doorways and your home’s architectural focal points. Outdoor lighting also increases safety and security by lighting pathways, stairways and home entrances.
It’s easy to get started. A Heinen lighting pro will meet with you to assess areas where exterior lighting may be beneficial – such as patios, pathways, decks, landscaped areas and driveways. Once understanding your specific property’s lighting needs, Heinen will create a lighting plan with recommendations on where outdoor lighting should be located and the best type of lighting for the situation.
In addition, since Heinen regularly works with FX Luminere, one of the top lighting manufactures in the country, there are several additional features that may be added to your home lighting plan. Using an FX Luminere lighting control system, your outdoor lighting can be fully customizable, so you can be in control of colors, brightness, and on/off timers.
Don’t spend another minute in the dark! Why not call and schedule a meeting with one of Heinen’s nightscaping pros? They’re experts at adding a little “lighting-magic” to outdoor living spaces.
