Very often overlooked in interior room design is lighting. Lighting is important not only so you can see what you are doing in a room, but also to help you feel comfortable. There are lots of things lighting can affect in a room. Lighting can make tasks easier, make a room seem quieter (or louder), warm a room up (or cool it down), and it can even help you de-stress. We work with you to design lighting in your room that will work for you.
And then there was light.
In interior design you also need to consider what the lighting is used for and the purpose of the room. Rooms with different purposes call for different lighting. For instance, a media or theater room is most often dark, but you need to consider specific lighting in certain areas like near your video or projection equipment and for safety, such as floor lighting in case someone wants to get up and walk around while the overhead lights are off. In a kitchen, office, craft room you will want directed task lighting for your various work areas, but you will also want to keep in mind that you need general lighting to light the whole room beyond your work areas. Think about all the different areas in your home and how you use those spaces and you will see how important interior design can be in selecting your lighting.
Incandescent, fluorescent, LCD, LED, halogen…high intensity what?
