Residential Lighting Design

Lighting is important! Without it, you're just "in the dark." That might be OK for a while, but sometime soon, you will want to "see the light!"

A lot of lighting in residential interiors happens without a vision, a plan, or a purpose. It is especially important in brand new homes or remodels to draw up a floor plan showing the furniture arrangements. Then a "reflected ceiling plan" is done on top of that, so we discover where to position the lighting. This enables us to see the full potential of what the lighting plan will accomplish for us. These concepts all revolve strongly around developing the ambiance, mood, and feeling of your environment.

The idea is that we want to see the effects of the lighting, not just the lighting sources themselves. In certain cases, like with chandeliers for example, the aesthetical value of the fixture is just as compelling as the lighting.
