The show, located at the Overland Park Convention Center, is focused on new and innovative products and services for home and business remodel or design build projects. NiteLites of KC Outdoor Lighting ideas include green eco-friendly landscape lighting solutions that are optimal for creating ambient warm glows in areas such as: pathways, decks, outdoor kitchens, pergolas, entryways, signs, fountains, architecture, and steps.
NiteLites specializes in creating the perfect lighting ideas for the individual elements of home and business lighting projects. Some of these ideas include:
Accent and spot lighting – To add drama to a landscape or to focus attention on a specific architectural feature of a home by shining an intense spotlight on it.
Path or outdoor lighting – Placing fixtures at a low level to make walking on a garden path safer and more serene.
Washing – Installing a light at the base of a wall or hedge to wash light over the surface, creating a soft glow effect.
Up lighting – Shining a light up from the ground into the branches of a tree to accentuate the shape of the tree and to highlight its foliage.
Moonlighting – By locating lights 14 to 16 feet up in the branches of taller trees and angling the light upward, a romantic moonlight effect is created. To create a subtle, whimsical lighting effect on the ground, similar to a full moon shining through the trees, the well elevated fixtures will be angled toward the ground.
Shadowing – Installing spotlights low in front of a tree or statue with a striking profile will create shadows with depth. To create an even more dramatic look, your lighting designer may place the lights high above the focal point.
Silhouetting – By positioning lights behind and below an object, a distinctive silhouette is produced.
Spread lighting – Hiding lights in low-lying landscaping and ground cover causes the lighting to “spread” which emphasizes the textures and patterns of the plants.
The HBA Home Show – Fall Edition tickets can be purchased online or at the Hen House for six dollars. Children 12 and under are free and Sunday is “two for one” day for attendees who donate 3 cans of food or $3 to Harvester’s.
