Your Home in a New Light
This is one of those things that most people don’t really even consider or think about when it comes to styling or redecorating their homes. More often than not, the thoughts are interior-related or throwing on a fresh coat of paint around the house. What most people don’t grasp is that a simple lighting design can drastically change the look of your home and give you that feeling of a cozy and luxurious environment you’re used to seeing in the big city or at a hotel.
I’m going to be honest, I got this idea from a friend of mine. Even I wasn’t aware or had ever really thought about setting up a lighting display around my home. He had hired Outdoor Comforts to install his lighting, and I’ll tell you, I was blown away at the difference it made. So this is my shout-out to Outdoor Comforts and the great job they did.
What makes this lighting design so great is that we can now sit comfortably outside, year-round (this is Texas after all), and never have to worry about when the sun goes down. The yard, the deck, the pool, everything is well-lit so that when the sun goes down, the party starts.
I never knew that just a handful lights, well placed and directed could alter your home as much as it does. It truly is an amazing experience. And to be able to enjoy your yard at all times of the day is it’s own great little pleasure.
