Houston luxury homes are characterized by custom designs that speak to the personal sensibilities of the individual homeowner. As such, there is much more than spaciousness to be considered when planning custom home lighting in one of these mansions.
Nuances of interior and exterior architecture must be taken into account. The landscape around the home is also equally important, because it introduces the architecture and frames the home façade. Even the way space is utilized is important, because people who invest in custom homes live eclectic lifestyles and often use them for entertainment space and private art collections as well as personal living space.
As a full service Houston luxury home lighting company, one of the benefits that ILD can bring to every investor in a large custom home is the full magnification of the home’s interior and exterior architecture. In order to achieve this, our design team uses a wide range of lighting fixtures positioned at key angles in and around the home.
Fixtures are either concealed so the home appears to glow in the night with a magic light of its own. Or, decorative fixtures that compliment a particular type of architecture are deliberately placed in full view to augment the sophistication of the façade. On the exterior of the home, the façade of the house is always given preeminence. The house is treated as the keynote of the landscape around which everything else revolves.
Landscape elements are then illuminated to add dimension to the rising figure of a Houston luxury home. The size of the lot is not the issue. Every property is characterized by unique points of differentiation than can be accented with a variety of landscape lighting fixtures.
Gardens, pathways, walkways, ponds, and sculptures can all be lit with a wide range of specialty fixtures as well as tree lighting. Individual forms can be highlighted for their uniqueness, then tied to other forms using layers of light that bathe the entire landscape in a dreamlike glow.
On the interior of the home, layers of light are used as a form of interior design that fills out the space of interior architecture. It is not uncommon for a living room, master bedroom, custom kitchen, or family dining room to be illuminated by up to four layers of light generated by general and decorative interior lighting fixtures.
Art lighting is treated as a separate science by our team. Fine art requires special measures to be taken in order for artwork to be preserved. It also requires certain types of light for the full richness of its colors to be brought into full view of the audience.
Houston luxury homeowners who collect fine art and sculpture should be aware that ILD has over 30 years of experience in designing fine art lighting systems for private art collectors. We also have access to proprietary equipment that preserves the integrity of the art and showcases its full beauty with maximum impact.
People living in Houston luxury homes have made an investment in space that goes far beyond decoration. People use their homes for gatherings, reunions, weddings, home theater, and dinner parties. Having a high end lighting design that will support any event is important.
With a lighting automation control system, Houston luxury home owners can turn one lighting system into hundreds with the touch of a few simple buttons. Lighting control systems are capable of manipulating single fixtures and entire groups of lighting fixtures.
By varying the intensities of the various lights within the room, a host can set any mood for any event. He or she can even add music to the light to create a full sensory experience at the next cocktail party or birthday party held at the home.
