Lighting: An Important Part of Your Portland Home Remodel

Posted by Lane Cooper on Apr 13, 2017 4:40:00 PM

Typically homeowners are unaware of the significance of properly lighting their home. However, a well-executed design with style and function is a crucial aspect of your Portland home remodel.

Choosing which type of lighting is best-suited for each space can seem a bit overwhelming, once you realize the options and begin to learn about the benefits and drawbacks of all the different types available. That’s where the job of a quality and trusted design-builder comes in. Our specialty is based on uniting the disciplines of design and construction into one – we create the continuity between the vision of design and the realities of construction. Thus, let us help you decide.

Intelligently designed and selected recessed lighting provides the foundation of any proper lighting plan for your Portland home remodel. Often overlooked in its importance, this is the lighting that truly brightens larger interior spaces and is especially effective and enjoyable when placed on a dimmer. Upgrading to highly efficient LED recessed lighting will save you hundreds of dollars each year on your utility bill as well!

Pendant lights can help break up the monotony of a room, while also serve to direct a large pool of light in one specific area. Common over kitchen islands and eating areas, the lights are soft and can be used in both contemporary and traditional styled spaces. The overall light design as well as the decorative shading options make pendants an extremely versatile lighting choice.

Vertical fixtures or sconces mounted on either side of the mirror are best for casting an even light across the face, and thus, are a great choice for a bathroom or powder room. Sconce lighting can also add a fabulous design accent to just about anywhere in the house – on either side of a fireplace, or even along a stairwell.
