Outdoor Lighting Is Expensive

Many homeowners have the idea that outdoor lighting is expensive. However, the reality is that outdoor lighting fixtures are comparatively the same cost and indoor lighting fixtures of a similar size, nature, type, and material. Thus, you'll spend some money on the investment, but you'll get that back on ROI for your Grand Junction home.

Outdoor Landscape Lighting Fixtures Have a Limited Lifespan

Some think that because outdoor lighting is exposed to the elements that they have a shorter lifespan than their indoor counterparts. This is simply not true. Outdoor lighting fixtures are made from durable materials that are constructed to withstand the elements. Thus, if you invest in high-quality outdoor lighting made from copper, aluminum, cast brass, and other types of metals, such as stainless steel, you can expect a long lifespan for your outdoor lighting.

The key to having the best winter outdoor lighting is to look for the highest quality lighting fixtures (such as those we offer here at One Source Lighting) and the best materials.

All Outdoor Lighting is the Same

You can probably tell the difference in the quality of exterior lighting when you see it. The fact of the matter is that high-quality lighting products that your local lighting store carries will always be far superior than your local hardware box store or department store in terms of materials, design, and function. In fact, the overall look and feel of your outdoor lighting will have a lot to do with the design, too.
