Our Selection Process, Part 3 Lighting

Whether you're remodeling or building a custom home you'll want to dive deep into the process for selecting your light fixtures. Light fixtures can add any number of design elements to your spaces but it's important while your looking though options that you consider the functionality. You definitely want your fixtures to deliver the amount of light you need for the functionality of each room.

Our favorite kitchen lighting fixtures include pendants, canned lighting and under cabinet lighting. This is one place that most of our clients need the most light for all the work they do in their kitchens. In most cases our clients choose to have all three options: canned lighting, pendants and under cabinet lighting.

Frosted Glass Pendant Lighting
Canned Lighting + Under Cabinet Lighting

Next, you'll want to take in consideration how much natural lighting you have or will have in each of the spaces of your home. Sconces, chandeliers and huge statement fixtures can illuminate spaces that may not have the best lighting or that need specialized lighting to set the mood of the space.

In bathrooms, you can do a few fun things like mirrors that light up, interior cabinet lighting and you'll almost always be looking at a canned lighting.

How do we find light fixtures for your project? After reviewing your project we'll use our lighting selections tool to determine which lighting fixtures you want. Then we'll meet in person at one or more lighting showrooms to make those selections. In the event we can't meet in person we can virtually accomplish the same thing.

Various Selection Tools

Selecting the lighting that is just right for you and your home makes turning those lights on for the first time that much more exciting!
