Outdoor lighting provides an opportunity to expand the ambiance of a home beyond its walls. With its enhancement of a natural setting and the vibrant energy of a home, it highlights aesthetic aspects that may go unnoticed. The architectural details of a house can present attractive accents that deserve attention. Unique features can become focal points as a garden, a special tree, a pool or hardscape create a rewarding visual experience. Outdoor lighting directs attention to deserving elements with grace and elegance.
Choosing the Best Outdoor Lighting Brands for a Distinctive Difference
Our experience shows that the best outdoor landscape lighting results from choosing the highest quality products. Brands that perform well in Washington include Unique Lighting Systems, Kichler Landscape Lighting and FX Luminaire, producing the finest American-made products. The elegance they bring to a landscape makes them worthy choices for consideration.
In addition, the safety and security they offer can provide peace of mind for discerning owners. The enjoyment of moving around outdoors after dark increases with the assurance of safe footing on paths and walkways. Lighting that makes steps and stairs easy to negotiate helps everyone feel secure in an outdoor environment. Illumination that deters intruders can present an attractive appearance while keeping homes safe with stylish outdoor fixtures.
Selecting a Material for Durability, Style and Elegance
Part of the joy of incorporating outdoor lighting into a home’s landscape comes from choosing a material that provides aesthetic satisfaction. Copper, stainless steel and brass can withstand wet weather and stand up to salt spray and UV rays. Over time, their appearance may change and become even more lustrous and rich.
An alloy of copper and zinc, brass brings a pleasing aesthetic value to landscape lighting. An excellent choice for coastal areas, it may develop a lovely patina over time, and it does not corrode. The high-quality metal enhances the beauty of a well-appointed yard.
The beauty and durability of copper enhances the elegance of an outdoor setting with accent lighting. Time and exposure to the elements allows it to assume a darker color and patina that increases its relevance in a landscape. Its timeless beauty carries a tradition of value starting with its use thousands of years BC. A distinctive metal that becomes more beautiful with age, copper fixtures in an outdoor setting gives a home a welcoming ambiance.
• Stainless Steel
A preference for a modern or contemporary style can make stainless steel outdoor lighting an excellent choice. As it faces the sun, it reflects a clean, modern look. Highly durable and rust-resistant, stainless fixtures can withstand temperature extremes, resist impact and not corrode. Neither rain nor snow, sleet nor frost affect the metal that expresses aesthetic preferences.
Choosing Kichler’s Excellence for Outdoor Lighting
The pride that Kichler takes in landscape illumination reflects the respect it holds for the work and dedication of owners to make residences beautiful.

Accentuation of a table or chairs can appear as gracefully as moonlight on a summer eve.
Specialty lights offer options for areas that require either direct or subtle illumination for unique purposes. Boundary lights can gracefully accentuate property lines, expanding the outdoor living area to new dimensions. Shrubs or fences that indicate boundaries can become focal points with lights that show their beauty and accomplish several purposes.
