Set the Perfect Scene for Thanksgiving with Lutron Lighting Control
Ring in the Holidays with the Right Lighting for Every Activity
We’re in November, and the holiday season is in the air. It’s time to break out favorite recipes, decorate for Thanksgiving, visit with family and friends, and enjoy much needed time off from work and school.
Thanksgiving is a favorite holiday for many people as it offers a relaxed way to spend time and reconnect with family and friends. And that will happen in many ways, with cooking, dining, and entertaining on the agenda, whether you do it with an intimate group or extended family.
Regardless of how you celebrate the holidays, lighting is a way to set the right ambiance for any and all parts of it. Keep reading below to see how Lutron lighting control helps you set the scene for your Thanksgiving and holiday season in Alpharetta, GA.
The Well-Lit Kitchen
Thanksgiving is all about cooking up a storm as we show our gratitude for the earth’s bounty. Lutron lighting control can set the correct illumination you need for many hours in the kitchen constructing your menu. A Lutron wireless keypad with a custom “cooking” button can light up your kitchen for action. Undercounter lights shine brightly, pantry shelves are lit, overheard downlights and island pendants all go on to the ideal settings – bright enough to see everything, not too much light to cause glare from surfaces.
As your hands will be busy, you may need some spot lighting changes while they are deep into prepping the turkey. With Lutron, you can use your voice to control the scene or an individual light. Just tell your voice assistant of choice to “turn island lights to 100%” for that extra light you need.
Soft Dining Lights
Some people eat the meal on the earlier side, and some later. Regardless of the time of day, your lighting can set the scene. Lutron lighting control works with tunable lighting that can match the hue of sunlight throughout the day. As the day wanes and you prepare to sit for the late afternoon meal, warm-dimmed light can bathe your dining area with light that mimics the late afternoon sun for a relaxed setting. As the sun sets, your light can also gradually fade up to provide just the right ambiance and continue the relaxed mood.
Enjoying the Games
Thanksgiving is a distinctly American holiday, and so is the football that goes with it like toast and butter. When your crew is ready to sit back and digest the big meal, you can catch a traditional pro or college game. Your Lutron system can set the scene with one button here, too – you can even call it "football time." Your lighting can dim to the right level for excellent visibility of the screen without reflection from overhead or floor lamps. If the late afternoon sun is still streaming through a window, you can mitigate it with one touch of a control for your motorized shades or window treatments. You'll be ready to break out the after-dinner beverages and cheer on your favorite team.
Lutron lighting control is not just for the holidays – you’ll enjoy its convenience and luxury all year long. To learn more, contact us here or click below to connect with one of our experts quickly. We look forward to working with you!
