At your next cocktail party, interior lighting design can play a crucial role in setting the emotional tone of the event. Each individual room of your home can be turned into a separate realm of entertainment with multiple layers of light that overlap and vary in degree.
The party begins in your kitchen, where guests will no doubt congregate for drinks and appetizers. Here is your first opportunity to set a festive mood within an opulent setting of maximum comfort. One of the best ways to do this is with custom LED under-the-cabinet lights and custom cabinet lights installed by Illuminations Lighting and Design.
These new LED festoon cabinet lights are made specifically for high-end luxury interior lighting design, and look better than the traditional xenon lamps of the past because there will be no shadows or bright spots to diminish the ornate opulence of your countertop, appliances, and food presentations. Thanks to special glare shields on the fixtures, the light is directed backward and evenly in a way that washes the surface with lights. This will amaze your guests as they immediately notice the rich colors of your custom granite, marble, or Corian countertop as revealed under these concealed specialty lights.
As they hide from view under the front undersurface of each of your cabinets, these undercabinet lighting fixtures direct an even wash of light backward over your countertop back splash, you can dim the lights slightly and highlight your drink selection like you often see in long bars and wine bars. These latest and greatest LED lights are heat free, harmless, and use less than 1 watt of power per lamp.
Additionally, please consider other possibilities both in terms of general interior lighting design and specialty lighting effects. The key to maximizing the decorative and functional power of light is to have complete control of it. Investing in a lighting control system that is both user-friendly and super intuitive will give you power, choice, and convenience.
With a few simple pushes of a button, you can manipulate specific groups of light in the kitchen, dining room, and living room. The interior lighting patterns you create can be a subtle cue to your guest that the party is moving to these rooms, or politely moving on from these rooms. Music that is also controlled by the lighting system can further reinforce both mood and event in a very subtle, yet pleasing fashion.
In addition to low voltage recessed lights and general room lights that can be adjusted one at a time, or all at once, special cove lights very similar to your kitchen lights can fill the ceiling with a magic glow that is ideal for the sense and sensibility of any special occasion.
Special art lighting will keynote your favorite masterpieces, and typical fixtures like lamps and chandeliers, thanks to their interplay with other layers of light on the lighting control system, become atypical in performance and application as they take on a new life of their own.
