You can choose fixtures that are bold and stylish that make a statement or you can choose lighting that is hidden from view and showcases your home’s features. When choosing the lighting you want in your custom home, consider factors like natural lighting and then ensure your lighting will fulfil the following essentials:

Practicality- Your lighting does more than brighten a room, it should also be used for security purposes. In addition, lighting should also be efficient, so discover accessories like dimmers, timers and automatic sensors.

Mood- Think carefully about each of the rooms in your custom home, the kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms all serve different purposes and, therefore, should have vastly different lighting needs.

Style- The lighting you choose should compliment your home’s decor, whether that be modern, traditional or ornate. There are many types of lighting fixtures that are works of art. The lighting you choose should create a feeling of warmth and welcome you into the room.
