Your home is more than a place to lay your head at night; it is an expression of your inner self. Your living spaces should furnish you with a sense of vitality, comfort, and security- lighting is the critical component for designers.

Creating a Smart Home from a Designer’s Perspective

In Highlands, NC, many of you have heard about the incredible technological advancements in smart home automation. What was once unimaginable is now a part of everyday life for many people as the smart home market continues to increase at a remarkable pace.

Lighting Design Brings Beauty and Elegance to Smart Homes

Aesthetically Pleasing, Easy-to-Manage Homes Combine Lighting Design and Lighting Control

In smart home automation circles, we often talk about lighting control. One touch on an in-wall keypad can turn off all of your lights at once. Tapping the "Entertainment" button on your Control4 touchscreen can set your indoor and outdoor landscape lights to the perfect hue and temperature for an evening of gathering with friends. 

Turn into your driveway, and your lights illuminate a trail to your door before you even get out of the car. Lighting control is a powerful home management tool.

On the other hand, lighting design is about beauty as well as functionality. Architectural lighting design considers natural light, electric light, and how light is used throughout a home. It is as important as paint, texture, furnishings, and a home’s overall design. 

As the interior designer Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz stated, “Light is the magical ingredient that makes or breaks a space; it’s one of the more important elements in all my interiors.” 

Let’s look at how lighting design can transform your Arden, NC home.
