Architects & Interior designers have many tools at their disposal when it comes to creating interior designs. One of these tools, however, is quite often overlooked as people don’t realize the potential that it has to transform a space. This tool is lighting and it has the power to make or break an interior scheme. Lighting can make a house into a home and will allow the personality of the owner to shine through. Without good lighting, the impact of all the other well-thought out details like your handpicked furnishings, flooring, and wall coverings will be lost. We will gladly help you design a stylish and functional lighting system for your home.
Whether it’s a single wall dimmer, multiple controls in a room, or a complete home system, managing the amount, and quality of your light can help save energy and enhance your home environment. If you’re familiar with the task of walking through and shutting off lights in empty rooms, a lighting control system can make managing those lights a breeze with wireless controls or wall-mounted keypads. Room sensors can also automatically turn off lights when there are no occupants, and outdoor lights can be connected to sensors or put on schedules so they’re not accidentally left on during the day. Lighting control can add to your home’s security as well by turning on a sequence of lights in your home, helping you to avoid coming home to a dark house.
