Lighting within your home manages color, highlights areas of your home, and even creates an illusion of more space. The placement of the fixtures, types of fixtures and even the number of fixtures are important factors when creating the desired functionality and style.
There are countless types of light fixtures available, and typically at least 200 bulbs will work with any given fixture. Add to that the options for control devices—switchers, dimmers, wireless options, you name it—and it can be overwhelming to choose what you will put in your home, let alone install it.
While we don’t typically select light fixtures for our customers, we often help them design and install the lighting in their home to achieve the mood and creative effects they desire. We are familiar with the many different styles of fixtures and the light bulbs which work best with the fixtures chosen. We can even help you select which devices should be used to control them.
