Dec 21, 2022 9:22:28 AM

One of the amazing things about outdoor lighting trends right now is that they just keep evolving. The technology and the quality continue to improve, which allows us to offer you the best possible solutions out there. 

As you look to the future, here are some lighting trends for 2023 that should be on your radar.

Lighting Trends 2023

Here are some new trends you might want to make part of your landscape lighting ideas for your Memphis, TN property.

#1: Niche Applications

One of the ways that we’ve really seen lighting evolve is with the continued introduction of niche solutions for outdoor lighting. This has allowed us to get more customized than ever with our outdoor lighting designs.

With previous lighting fixtures, it was difficult to create highly custom designs because we only had certain lights to work with. But trending outdoor light fixtures is all about those niche applications.

If you have something really cool you want to light up on your house, we’ll be able to find just the right light for it. We also have so much more flexibility in where we can mount lights. We can install lights on fencing, within trees, on the home, and so much more. 

There’s no longer an issue of having something really cool that you want to light up but not having the right fixture for it.

#2: Color-Changing Light Technology

Another lighting trend of 2023 is color-changing technology. Of course, that’s a trend that’s already here but we expect it to only grow. 

Color-changing lights are exactly what they sound like. For instance, some homeowners do red and green lights for the holidays or maybe they want to go with their favorite team colors on game day.

Color-changing lights can be controlled from a smart device. 

We’ve also found that color-changing lights work really great when lighting up pool features as you can actually give color to the water. A simple water fountain becomes much more appealing with some color shined on it.

#3: WiFi Control

Of course, it’s not just color-changing lights that can be controlled from a smart device. In general, WiFi control continues to gain popularity and we expect to see it pop up in backyard lighting ideas in 2023.

WiFi control gives you the ability to change your lighting set-up at the push of a button on an app.  Often, homeowners pre-program different lighting “schemes” that they prefer for different situations.

For instance, you might have a lighting scheme that is set for a dinner party with brighter lighting so that everyone can see one another (and what they’re eating). 

But if you are having a more intimate, immediate family gathering, perhaps you just want a handful of lights to come on…and maybe you want them dimmed, particularly if you are going to be spending time by a fire feature.

Don’t Get Stuck with Outdated Landscape Lighting

Whether you like these three trends or you’re interested in others, the most important factor is that you make sure you are working with a landscape lighting company that is offering the best.

Even though lighting continues to evolve, there are still so many companies that are using incredibly outdated lighting.

The fact is, even if you don’t want something fun or fancy, you still want to make sure that you are getting the highest quality lighting there is. That includes making sure that you are getting LED technology, which is the best solution out there. 

But some companies are stuck in the old way of doing things. When it comes to landscape lighting ideas, they don’t have much to offer because they’re still using old fixtures and bulbs.

We know that homeowners tend to assume all lighting companies are offering the same products and services but this just isn’t the case. If you want the best, you’ll need to do your research and make sure that you choose a company that’s keeping up with outdoor lighting trends.

At Mid South Night Lights, we frequently attend trade shows and industry events so that we ARE keeping up with what’s new. It’s about being able to offer our clients all of the options so that we can customize a solution that’s right for them. When it comes to your Memphis, TN property, you deserve the best.
