Now that summer is here you might escape the city of Omaha for more relaxing weekends at your lake home retreat. There’s something about late nights by the lake, whether it’s creating memories telling stories around the fire pit or a quiet evening lounging while watching the view. It’s part of the charm of owning a lake home.
So, shouldn’t your lake home be a place that draws you in and encourages more of these late-night memories? Landscape lighting can add ambiance and extend your time in your outdoor spaces while adding safety and security.
Over the years, we’ve designed and installed outdoor lighting at lake homes throughout Nebraska, Iowa, and surrounding states. We’ve gathered some of our favorite lake house outdoor lighting projects from our gallery. Get inspiration and see how light can help extend the time in your outdoor living areas.
