And not just lighting you can pick out from a magazine — our showroom is LIT UP!
It’s taken Juan and the crew many late nights, flexing those muscles and breaking a sweat (or two) to get these unique and gorgeous lighting fixtures up.
And since we’re talking about lighting and the beauty that these fixtures can bring to any home – Dai and Mary Ann bring you their best lighting tips…
Dai & Mary Ann’s Best Lighting Tips
HAVE IN MIND A LIGHTING PLAN
Map out the rooms where you want your lighting and think of what activities will happen in those rooms.
Eating and dining?
Take into account the size and any boundaries you have for a room.
It’s much easier to plan ahead then go without any consideration of what you’ll be working with.
CREATE AN INSPIRATION BOARD
If you love Pinterest as we do, create a lighting board and try to pin everything that inspires you and then let us help you from there!
Bring in your Pinterest lighting board – or any other photos you may have of furnishings you have or want to acquire and color schemes as these pieces all work together – and lets us help you tie it into your home design.
Pictures are a perfect way to see what your tastes are, so we can help you bring your vision to life.
DON’T BE AFRAID TO MIX IT UP
Textures, metal, color, and styles can totally mix together – it just takes the right eye and pieces to make it look just right (don’t fret, that’s why we’re here).
Lighting can accentuate the shape and size of a room, especially when you’re aiming for a cozy feel.
As we said, we’re here for you every step of the way.
It’s easy to forget that shadows can be a problem when it comes to where to place a light.
Bathroom and kitchen lighting are notorious for shadows.
In bathrooms – a horizontal fixture can help cast shadows away. In kitchens – consider where you’ll be doing most of the prep work and utilize task lighting for those areas.
CONSIDER THE MOOD
Each room has a mood you’re going for – allow your lighting to help enhance that mood.
Whether it be accent lighting for a dramatic touch, ambient lighting for general areas or task lighting for workstations and reading, consider what mood you’re going for and incorporate that into your lighting plan.
We hope you enjoyed these simple tips on lighting for your home.
We invite you to stop by our showroom to see these beauties in person (pictures do no justice) and pick one out for your home design project!
