How to bring your home design to life with lighting control.
We all know how important light is for how our home feels, but few of us put it at the heart of our house design and planning. The latest lighting control systems combine security, simplicity and style in one smart package…
Many of us design a room by selecting what we’re going to put inside it – whether it’s furniture, white goods or decorative items. Only after that do we get around to considering the lighting.
For professionals, the reverse is true. Lighting comes first because it can completely change a room’s mood.
For a lighting expert it’s important to consider the device controlling the light before picking the lamp shade colour, for example. Not doing so would be like choosing your favourite music but not being able to change the volume.
This is increasingly important because of how we use modern homes today. Whereas rooms once had one purpose, now they’re more likely to have several. In an open plan kitchen where you eat as well as cook, you’ll want to be able to dim the light .
For that kind of freedom and adaptability you need controllable lighting. This will allow you to create the mood you want to when you want , no matter what you’re doing or whether it’s day, night or afternoon.
