With a little planning and effort, you don’t have to get on a plane to create that magical, relaxing, and indulgent resort feeling, right at home. Architectural and landscaping lighting, combined with illuminated water features, create that enchanting nighttime environment you’ve grown to love from resorts all over the world.
Enhance all Five Senses
Garden and landscape lighting adds another element to the multi-sensory experience of your yard, patio, garden, and other outdoor areas. Trickling water features, fountains, and waterfalls add to the soft sounds of the evening, while the right lighting invites family and friends to rest, relax, and breathe in the scents and sounds of the evening.
Lighting Water Features
Draw curious eyes to your beautiful pool, pond, waterfall, fountain, or other water features by the perfect illumination of strategically placed lighting. Imagine lighting that brings to life the ripples, bubbles, and splashes of your water features.
If you have fountains or a waterfall, consider using focused lighting or many smaller lights that cast a myriad of delicate shadows. The glow of underwater lights softly filters through the water and plays against plantings, stone edging, and other elements, adding depth and movement to the environment. If you have a pond, add soft lighting along the edge that lets you admire the water lilies and any fish that live in the pond, even after darkness falls.
Keep in mind that it’s a good idea to use a professional lighting company when it comes to combining water and electricity. Professionals give you the confidence that your outdoor LED lighting system will be installed correctly and safely.
Lighting to Maximize Relaxation
The soft glow of light encourages relaxation. When lighting water features think about the correct light levels to soften the edges, beautify your landscaping, highlight your water features, and encourage outdoor relaxation.
Consider also the positioning of lights as well as the type and style of lights for each water feature. Combined, these steps will help create a luxurious resort feel and will ensure your outdoor areas are visually stunning and safe.
But Don’t Stop There!
Combine professionally designed exterior lighting with other resort-inspired elements for the full effect. These include potted plants and vines that soften the edges and shade from awnings and umbrellas. When you’re done, you’ll be able to grab a drink that reminds you of your favorite vacation spot, and suddenly you have that perfect resort feeling without leaving home.
