Putting a light fixture in a bright hue in an otherwise simple room can add some fun and interest to the space. Colored shades can work wonders especially when the light is turned on.
Consider your lighting preferences during the initial design phase of a new build or renovation. For example if you want three pendant lights over your dining table instead of one or two that should be taken into account before construction starts.
There are some important things to consider before selecting a skylight or light tube. Access to more sunlight can have profound effects on the efficiency of your home’s building envelope or skin. It’s always best to assess your house from a whole-building design approach. In new constructions we have the liberty to consider daylighting from the initial design stages. Skylights can be an integrated part of the design of a house allowing the interior to feel as though it’s connected with the exterior. The proportion of glass compared to the rest of the house can be calculated to reach certain energy-efficiency goals.
