3 Ways a Lighting Design Company Can Improve Your Home’s Lighting

Lighting is an essential part of daily life—it's obvious that you need illumination for a functional home. Beyond the practical aspect, though, lighting also serves aesthetic purposes, as it can frame how you view your spaces. Yet, all too often, not enough attention is often paid to the lighting quality, even in high-end homes. 

What do we mean by the quality of lighting? Many homes get standard lighting fixtures that don't move the needle in terms of the quality of light or how it looks in your home. As a lighting design company, we can show you a world of lighting options well beyond the ordinary for your Alys Beach, FL, home. Let’s look at three ways we can bring a different level of light into your home.

Learn About Different Lighting Options

LED technology has opened up a wealth of previously unavailable lighting form factors. One example is linear lighting, where straight lights can cover several feet. Popular options include tape lighting and linear fixtures that make it easy to add lighting that is both functional and decorative. Imagine adding linear lighting to make stairs appear to float or in a soffit to give an elegant effect to your ceiling. 

But even regular lighting gets an upgrade, thanks to LED brightness and compactness. You can swap out recessed old can fixtures for more modern and elegant LED lights that add a more streamlined look to your ceiling. These LED lights have a high color rendering index (CRI) to make your home look natural and are precisely dimmable to candlelight levels to add a warm glow to a room. 

Add a Splash of Color

Older lighting had only one color temperature. While light bulbs and fixtures had a choice of white color temperature from warm to cool, once you chose it, you were stuck with it unless you changed out all your bulbs. Modern LED tunable lighting can dynamically change white light color temperature—and color—with a click or swipe. Imagine setting the ambiance for entertaining with a color theme or highlighting the brilliant red in a piece of artwork with colored light. You might be amazed at how you can transform your home with tunable light. 

Lighting Control for Convenience and Aesthetics

Without a lighting control system, lighting is controlled by switches wired to specific lighting loads. Lighting control adds layers of intelligence and management with programmable keypads that can manage lighting across a room or an entire house. 

Lighting control systems allow you to design scenes that customize lighting at the touch of a button. Want the warm glow for a romantic dinner? Or color in your art-lined hallways? All the intensity levels and colors are set once, and you can change them whenever you want. The convenience of automation via schedules and sensors also makes managing a complex lighting system easier than flicking a switch.
