custom home lighting plans for house dens by planning interior lighting systems around the activities of the homeowner and the unique contents of the room. Customization is the name of the game here, as today’s den is not the stereotype of the 70s- it is a highly personalized domain where anything from study, entertainment, relaxation, to conversation. We call it the art of light!
House lighting plans must take all of these things into consideration and build multiple levels of adjustable light to accommodate the multifunction of the den.
This requires a very solid working of lighting angles as well as superior equipment. Lighting designers have to conceal the fixtures, or they have to use something very decorative that compliments the interior décor of the room.
Lighting plans for house dens require a foundational level of general room light.
General room lighting is the light that fills the room in its entirety. It is the primary layer of light that illuminates large pieces of furniture, walls, and carpet. Making this layer of light adjustable allows the homeowner to set different emotional tones within the same room.
Fixtures used as general room lights are carefully chosen to bring out the very best colors of interior architecture, furniture, and carpet.
Task and specialty lighting is also included in ILD lighting plans for house dens.
Different people use their dens for different activities. Some watch TV in their den. Others prefer to read or to work at a desk. Each of these activities requires a special type of sitting room lighting for support.
TV watching should never be done in the dark, because this strains the eyes. Rather, it should be enjoyed with low-level background lighting that can be adjusted with Lutron Radio Ra2 dimmer controls.
Reading light is also designed to be adjustable with pendant lights, decorative lamps, and even certain types of ceiling lights. Commercial grade fixtures and lighting controls are an absolute must because they ensure that reading can be enjoyed at just the right level of light without glare.
Desk lighting can also be designed in a variety of ways with special fixtures that place a wash of light over the work area without the presence of reflective glare.
Lighting plans for house dens also include impeccable accent lighting for interior architecture.
ILD installs dimmable, energy efficient cove lights to highlight the upper walls and ceilings of dens. This layer of light shines upward to the ceiling and compliments the downlighting of general room light.
Wall art lighting fixtures create an additional layer of light near eye level. In custom homes where interior walls feature a high-quality material build, such wall lighting brings out the magnificence in the home’s construction and blends superbly into the theme of your interior décor.
Lighting plans for house dens must also accommodate fine art and display decorations that standard lighting fixtures cannot adequately support.
Many people use cabinets to display awards and collectibles in their den. They also tend to decorate their den with high quality art and photography to make the room into a direct reflection of their individual personality.
ILD supports these displays and art collections with specialized display cabinet lights and fine art lighting projectors. These fixtures can be concealed from view so that only the subject being illuminated remains prominent in the eyes of the observer.
