Well, I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: good design is about function just as much as it is about beauty. Such is the case when it comes to lighting.
An often overlooked element, lighting plays an important role as to how well a space supports the needs of our everyday activities. Just recently a friend asked me what she could do about poor lighting in her small kitchen. Great question!
Lighting works best when applied in layers: general, task, accent, and decorative. While most homes come equipped with general or ambient lighting, fewer incorporate essential task lighting. To remedy this situation, consider installing under cabinet lighting or adjustable recessed fixtures. For the best advice, however, invite me over for a consultation 🙂
Have you noticed a friend or family member hunched over the kitchen counter, struggling to see what they were doing? Or have you been startled by your own shadowy reflection while using a friends’ bathroom? Perhaps Suzy Q from your office has developed a reputation for wearing one blue shoe and one black shoe. These people may be suffering from poor lighting conditions. I can help homeowners overcome their lighting obstacles as well as refer a reputable electrician if necessary.
