Outdoor lighting enhances the appearance of a home as effectively as interior decorating improves the living spaces. Proper planning allows homeowners to develop a design that reflects aesthetic preferences and serves practical purposes. Carpenter Electric has provided new electrical services to the West Palm Beach area since 1982 with superior customer satisfaction.

Choosing the Right Outdoor Lighting
Choices for outdoor and landscape lighting are usually dictated by the need to improve the safety or the aesthetic appearance of a home. One of the most popular types of lighting for safety is a flood light, which can illuminate a wide or confined area. Aesthetic lighting options include spot lights, bollard lights, pond lights, recessed well lights and torches. Installation of new electrical services requires the skill and knowledge of an experienced contractor to provide the sense of wellbeing that homeowners deserve.

Using Flood Lights Properly
Saturating an area with light is an effective way to improve safety. Light is a deterrent to burglars or vandals, and it provides safe footing for family members and visitors to a home. Placed at strategic locations in a yard, flood lights provide ample light for home owners to welcome guests and to prevent unauthorized access by intruders.

Softly Lit Walkways
Bollard lighting provides an attractive way to mark a path with low voltage bulbs that are shielded in short, attractively designed cylinders. Directed downward, they can highlight an ornament or architectural feature in addition to providing a low level of soft light.

Spotlighting for Accent
Highlighting trees or shrubs in a garden or an architectural feature on a home is a perfect use of spotlights. Halogen and LED lighting methods offer options that relate to the preferences of the homeowner. Both types of bulbs provide pleasant light that shows the true color of objects, and they offer the brightness and directionality that is usually preferred.

Featuring a Garden Area
A pond in a garden sanctuary is delightful at any time of the day, but it is especially beautiful at night when accented with appropriate lighting. Submersible lights at the bottom or along the sides allow viewing of shadows that are intriguing, which invites everyone to relax and enjoy the changing patterns. For a successful installation, the services of an electrician or carpenter are essential.

Colorful floating lights accent the pond in a unique way, and spotlights make it safe. Recessed well lights placed around a pond bring additional attention to a featured beauty spot in the yard. Electric torches create an atmosphere that is hard to equal, and they are safer than types that burn fuel. In the absence of a flame, guests can enjoy an outdoor dinner without the danger of an open fire. The appearance of a flame is provided by a safe torch, and no one cares whether the fire is real or not.

Relying on an Experienced Contractor
Clients who need an electrician or carpenter to create superior outdoor lighting designs can depend on the outstanding qualifications of Carpenter Electric. The staff has more than 100 years of estimating experience, and clients receive a proposal that is easy to understand with no hidden fees. Experience makes a significant difference that saves money for homeowners who endure no delays in project completion.
