Standard light fixtures can be purely functional, neutral, and dare we say “boring.” Sometimes you want something more from your home’s lighting options. Consider customizing your lighting which can brighten your home and add character to your living spaces. With so many different styles available, custom lighting lets you capture the perfect look for each room of your home.
Custom Lighting Adds a New Dimension to Your Home
When adding custom lighting to your home, you have two options: freestanding lighting (lamps) or permanently installed fixtures (recessed lighting or surface mounted lighting). If your existing fixtures lack the right look, or you want to add additional fixtures, then you will need the services of a residential electrician.
Types of Custom Lighting
As you consider the options for new lighting, make sure you understand all of the options available. Recessed lighting works well to highlight a feature of your home or in places that lack floor-to-ceiling space. Recessed lighting tucks into the wall or ceiling and adds light to dim areas. This type of lighting can also be used to highlight focal points in a room, provide lighting in basements with low ceilings, and works well in hallways.
Surface-mounted lighting mounts to the ceiling or the wall. Chandeliers, wall sconces, pendant lights, semi-flush mount lights and track lighting all fall into this category. This type of lighting gives you the most creative design options.
Custom lighting can also be used outdoors. Outdoor light fixtures must be weather resistant and should also be resistant to damage and fading. Use outdoor light fixtures to light up your outdoor entertaining space or highlight your favorite landscaping elements.
