3 Ways to Complement Home Décor with Lighting Control Design
Enhance your Glastonbury Home’s Beauty with a Lighting Installation
Some of the basic elements of interior design include wall color, furniture, artwork and other feature items that add character. But have you ever given more thought to how lighting adds to your home décor? C&T systems not only meets Connecticut homeowners’ basic needs of lighting installation, but we also incorporate lighting fixtures, designs, and automation into the overall look and feel of your home. Here are three ways we use lighting control design to make your property look gorgeous.
1.Position lights in strategic places
When you hire C&T Systems to install your lighting, we go above and beyond to make your home look as beautiful as possible. As licensed electricians and professional lighting designers, we have the ability to strategically place your lights in the right spots to not only illuminate your spaces but also highlight and complement décor. Downlights for example can be placed in the kitchen under cabinets to brighten your beautiful marble counter tops, or even near your hanging artwork to bring attention to your favorite pieces.
2.Install Philips HUE smart bulbs to add some color
Colored LED lights can help set the scene for special occasions and be used every day as well. Using an app on your smartphone or tablet, select a color like “deep sea” for a pretty blue, “relax” for dimmed soft white lights, or choose any color of the rainbow using the HUE color pallet. You can also select a different setting for every light. Choose red for the front porch during Christmas, dim the lamps in the living room for a soothing evening in, or turn just one off. Hue lighting can also be integrated into your home automation system so that all of the controls are in one convenient location.
3.Use integrated controls to create a lovely ambience
Lighting levels are a big part of setting the mood in your home. Bright lighting can invigorate you while soft lighting can make you feel relaxed. Lutron dimmers make it easy to enhance your lighting and control your environment for every occasion. Reduce the lighting level for a romantic dinner with your partner, or turn them all the way up to full capacity for high-energy workout in your home gym. Of course you can always experience the magic of automation as well by integrating your lighting with other functions. Using your control system, save settings together – dim the chandelier in the dining room, turn on the jazz playlist, and set the thermostat to a cozy 75. Hit one button and you’re ready for a relaxing night in. All you need is a nice bottle of wine.
