Inspiring Evening Exteriors

Is there anything more magical than a perfectly illuminated home exterior? We absolutely love the look of manicured landscaping and gorgeous pool-scapes. But, without the right lighting, it all disappears after dark.

To highlight the importance of well-planned exterior lighting, we turned to GTA electrical contractors and lighting design specialists Hotwire Electric. Hotwire Electric has been providing trusted, high quality electrical services to homes and businesses throughout the GTA for nearly 20 years. They create incredibly detailed, perfectly planned exterior lighting scheme, among so many other services. We simply had to showcase their work.


The Perfect Mood

What we really love about this pool-scape and lighting is how perfectly the lighting creates a mood. It’s not about bigger and brighter here. This outdoor space has texture and nuance. The interworking of shadow and light gives this space a feeling of Hollywood drama. Definitely Oscar-worthy!


Statement Fixtures

Not only does a well-thought-out lighting scheme extend your enjoyment of the outdoor space, but it actually provides additional layers of interest…and that includes choosing the right fixtures for the space.

Lovely lighting fixtures aren’t just for interiors. Exterior fixtures can make a statement as well. What do these one-of-a-kind fixtures say? They say, “look at me”! Simply gorgeous.

Stately and Safe

Of course, one of the biggest benefits of exterior lighting is the added safety it can bring. However, useful doesn’t have to equal boring. Here we have an example of lighting that adds both safety and elegance to the home.


There are so many ways to use light when adding interest to your outdoor spaces. For example, landscape lighting in gardens and walkways creates a magical palette of shadows and light. When updating your deck, consider innovations like stair light and in-floor lighting, while uplighting adds elegance to pools, trees and architecture alike. Best of all, automation panels allow you to schedule and operate everything with ease. Working with Howire Electric is also easy, because they’ve built a reputation for providing top quality service and impeccable customer care!
