As custom Flower Mound home builders, we know many people don’t give lighting much thought; it helps you see and brightens up dark spaces on a dreary day. The fact is, lighting is a feature that can make a huge impact on the atmosphere, mood, and beauty of your home, and is something you should consider carefully before making your final decision.
Think about it for just a moment; the right lighting showcases the other features in your home, can light up the focal point of a room, and even make a statement in itself, depending on the fixtures and how elegant or bold they are.
Before you choose lighting for the interior or exterior of your custom North Texas home, consider how the natural light impacts your spaces. This will help you choose fixtures that fulfill your style and mood needs, while providing the right control and practicality.
Style. Perhaps your style or design preference leans toward elegant, minimalist, traditional, contemporary or modern, or even country. The lighting fixtures you choose should blend with decor and become part of it. From lamps for reading or performing tasks, to recessed lighting for general light, or highlighting a certain area of the room. Today, there are more types of lighting than you could imagine. Wall mounted fixtures not only help create ambience, they can actually become central to your wall decor.
Mood. Think about the various rooms in your home, and the different lighting needs. From bright lighting in the kitchen to perform tasks to subtle lighting in the dining room; the level of brightness and even the fixtures or finishes themselves impact mood. For instance, soft lighting can create a cozy, romantic feel in the bedroom while indirect or dim lighting can help you create a cozy, welcoming living room for your family and guests.
Control and practicality. Dimmers, automatic sensors, timers and other features available today make it possible for you to enjoy a higher level of security while saving energy. From the right task lighting to outdoor motion detection lights, you want your home to function efficiently.
Of course, lighting plays an important role in curb appeal and dressing up your home’s exterior, showcasing the most beautiful features of your landscape after dark including flower beds, walkways, a fabulous entrance, and more.
As you can see, lighting is an incredibly important component to consider when building a custom home in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area!
