Illuminations Lighting and Design offers luxury home lighting services in Houston, Beaumont, Austin, and San Antonio. These services include architectural, landscape, interior lighting, lighting control, and fine are lighting services. The combination of these unique lighting design disciplines allows a custom home’s truly custom nature to emerge and play an active role in the lifestyle of the resident.
The most important element of luxury home lighting is architectural lighting. If a home does not look luxurious, it isn’t luxurious. This has always been the case. Therefore, it is the first priority of Illuminations Lighting Design to make certain that every architectural detail makes a home appear truly magnificent at night.
This is not done by casting light over every square inch of the home façade. Quite contrary, it is done by carefully blending degrees of luminance with varying levels of shadow. This makes the home look multi-dimensional and dreamlike. In fact, in most cases, such homes end up looking more beautiful at night than they do during the day.
Landscape Lighting Services
Lighting the landscape around a luxury home is another crucial part of our services. If the home just leaps up out of a completely dark landscape, its emergence is too abrupt. This is too much of a shock to the eyes.
A luxury home looks far more attractive when it is presented as the most important feature on a landscape of interrelated elements. Illuminated gardens, trees, walkways, hedges, and fountains place the home in a world of perspective, dimension, and verifiable location.
While the home looks dreamlike in certain respects, landscape lighting helps it avoid the excessively surreal by keeping it grounded.
High End Lighting Design
Lighting the interior of a luxury home requires building layers upon layers of light. Some of these layers have a purely functional purpose in mind. They work as general room lights that provide visibility. Others have a purely decorative nature. They accent furnishings, coves, and support interior design.
Lighting Control Systems
One interior lighting system can create four layers of light. By adding a lighting control system to a luxury home, ILD empowers the homeowner to turn this one lighting system into thousands of lighting design combinations. By pushing a button on a wall pad, hand held remote, or table top control, the homeowner can vary the intensity of single fixtures, or manipulate entire groups of fixtures at will.
Fine Art Lighting Consultants
It is important that we treat fine art lighting as its own separate science. All too often, people hire reputable electrical contractors who know how to find quality art lighting equipment, but nevertheless lack the design background needed to install it.Our team knows both, and we will light your art collection with museum quality light using special equipment and mounting techniques not available in the world of standard electrical contract services.
n many homes and offices, LIGHT is understood in its functional aspects. Rarely is it understood in terms of its artistic qualities. Lighting is more than utilitarian – it is theater! How an object is illuminated is just as important as what is being focused upon. That is what makes Illuminations Lighting Design unique. We combine practical experience with aesthetic taste to light the stage of your everyday experience. When it comes to your home or business, why settle for anything less?
