Planning Lighting for your Home
Steps to follow to perfectly plan your home lighting

Properly lighting your home may seem like a no-brainer, but once you start laying out the particulars—budget, style, function, and specs—the project can appear challenging and technical. To avoid feeling overwhelmed before you even begin, we have a few steps we would like you to consider. Lets have this in 2 parts, shall we? Part 1...

 
1. Establish the budget

It might seem like an obvious step, but it's amazing how quickly home projects—big or small—can put a serious dent in your bank account. To avoid a monetary setback, decide how much lighting you need, and designate the items you might want to splurge on, and other areas where you know you need to be more conscious of cost.

                                   2. Pick a Theme or Design Type

Just as you would stick to a color scheme when decorating a space, so should you consider the style and theme of the fixtures you're wishing to install. Since lighting is such an integral component of creating the mood and tone of a space, find products that speak to you and the particular space. If you have a signature style, the lighting should follow suit.

                                                3. Layer lighting

The basic principle is to layer three types of lighting: ambient, accent and task lighting. Ambient lighting creates general illumination, occupying a more functional role. Accent lighting is often more decorative fixtures come into play, like chandeliers, pendants, and linear lighting. Task lighting comes in many forms, providing focused lighting for work spaces throughout your home. Once all of these elements come together, the interior becomes a well-rounded (and well-lit) space.

             4. Do your research and stay educated about new technology

Let's face it, LED lighting is more common than ever these days, and there are different rules when it comes to installing LED fixtures in your home. With that said, consult your contractor or electrician for the proper voltage and dimming options required for LED fixtures.
