Incorporating wash lighting into your outdoor lighting design is an excellent way to add extra ambiance to the landscape of your home or business. Wash lighting bathes an area with light in a soft and subtle manner instead of the spotlighting technique, which uses strong and direct light. The beam of light has soft edges and creates a breathtaking view once the sun goes down.
Highlight Architectural Structures, Gathering Areas, or Landscaping
Wash lighting is an excellent way to draw attention to your favorite parts of your home or yard. It can be used to accentuate water features and the surrounding area, the trees lining your driveway, your fire pit, or the walls of your house, just to name a few ideas. The options are endless and the results are absolutely stunning. The wide beam of light used in wash lighting is evenly distributed and can illuminate an entire area without being harsh. It gives an illusion of grandeur and can make areas appear larger than normal.
Utilizing wash lighting can be exactly what your outdoor lighting design needs. Not only will it increase the curb appeal of your home or business, but the additional lighting can create a safer environment as well. Well-lit areas can deter crime and other unwanted visitors, and the additional lighting means that you can host parties and get-togethers outside well into the evening hours. Installing wash lighting outside of your home is a great way to show off your favorite features in a cozy and inviting way.
Wash Lighting for Commercial Properties
Wash lighting is not just for residential buildings, and can greatly benefit the outdoor lighting design of commercial buildings as well. Wash lighting can be used to illuminate the sides of buildings, drawing the eye to the name of the business. It can also be used in their landscape lighting to create a pleasing and enticing view. Wash lighting can also be used to enhance outdoor structures, such as an outdoor bar, patio area, or pool area.
