Putting a light fixture in a bright hue in an otherwise simple room can add fun and interest to space.
Whatever the occasion, you will need to set the mood for the evening – and there is no better alternative than the use of mood lighting! An increasingly popular lighting solution for homes helps enhance décor and ambience with a dramatic effect. It allows you to create multiple moods in your home during the day.
One of the most popular mood lighting forms is a dimmer switch, which allows you to decide upon your lights’ brightness and glow. With over 250 lighting levels, Lutron dimmer switches make any room versatile. You can alter the mood by increasing or decreasing the lights’ brightness to cater to your different moods and emotions with the Lutron App, which allows you to control your lights and shades with your smartphones home and away. It is available in Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
Know your glow
Choose one light fixture in a room to be a focal point, then add to that lighting with smaller fixtures located in crucial spots around the room. The type of lightbulb is equally essential, as well. Halogen, compact fluorescent and LED bulbs come in a range of warm or cool hues.
Much like your walls’ colour, the type of glow you want is mostly a personal decision. If your walls are covered in cooler tones, you might want to warm them up with a lightbulb that casts a warm glow. Conversely, you may want a more relaxed glow to brighten up a darker space. With a Lutron dimmer that can communicate wirelessly with a remote control or a smartphone, you can vary your light level at your fingertip!
Don’t shy away from colour
Putting a light fixture in a bright hue in an otherwise simple room can add fun and interest to space. Coloured shades can work wonders, especially when the light is turned on.
Get rid of dark, heavy drapery, as it absorbs light and makes a room seem darker and smaller. Instead, choose translucent sheer curtains that allow light to spread throughout the room.
In a dark living room, carefully think about where you’d like to place your lighting fixtures. Mix up the scheme – use a single bright light source, such as a chandelier, and complement it with another indirect lighting, such as recessed panels on the ceiling, so that the room doesn’t become blindingly bright yet looks cosy, warm and welcoming. Lutron dimmers come in 27 different colours, so the finishing touch to a room can blend in or stand out.
Casting your home in the right light is like creating a work of art. Ambient lighting from recessed or flush ceiling fixtures casts an overall relaxed glow or bright light. Task lighting beams the spotlight onto a specific area while decorative wall sconces and other wall fixtures cast indirect light. Small accent lamps, sometimes with LED bulbs, add pizzazz to bookshelves and fireplace mantels.
Torchieres or floor lamps with an upward glow or more traditional shade brighten corners and reading nooks and add extra light to a dark room. Whether you want a traditional look or something contemporary, a soothing neutral or a little pop, Lutron’s Pico wireless remote controls have the answer to it. you can control your lights with Pico wireless controllers which can be wall-mounted, hand-held or table-top, giving you flexible control wherever you want.
