Entryway Success - How to make a lasting impression

If home is where the heart is, the entryway is the main artery. It waves goodbye to you as you leave in the morning and greets you when you come home every evening. The entrance to your home should be welcoming, a reflection of you and your family. Just like families, entryways come in all shapes and sizes, so a one size fits all approach definitely does not apply and a personal touch is most certainly recommended.

For those with a long narrow hallway, adequate lighting is important. It will help to guide guests to where they are going and welcome them to your home. A beautiful way to achieve this is by perfectly placing downlights or step lights to illuminate the space, highlighting artworks and creating washes of light. For a more traditional look, wall lights placed down the hallway will achieve the same goal. In larger open spaces, statement pendants will wow you and your guests every time. Another thing to remember is having well placed switches so you are only ever momentarily fumbling around in the dark (unless it’s the right kind of fumbling, in which case, as you were).

We would love to help your entryway make a perfect first impression, and a lasting one.

Perfecting Task Lighting

January 2019
Whether you are prepping food, cooking, reading, studying, applying makeup or inspecting the newest addition to your forehead wrinkle collection, these are all tasks that require lighting. When it comes to task lighting, particularly down lights and pendants, a wrong step and you will be forever cast in shadow. Literally.   
       
Your lighting choices should never be an afterthought, consider each room and how you use the space, it takes great planning and skill to get it right. Ambiance is also required when contemplating your task lighting needs, which is why the best rooms have multiple light sources, applied like layers, each one can be added or removed at the flick of a switch. We also always recommend installing dimmer switches, they give you the ability to brighten a space or tone it down to set the mood….. so as you can see the key to task lighting is options! 
Whether it be wall lights or pendants next to your bed perfectly placed for snuggling up with a good book or your new favourite Netflix series, an easily adjustable table or floor lamp for lighting those dark nooks or whether its salon grade bathroom lighting for those deft makeup applications, it's important to get it right. Don’t despair if this has you in a task lighting tiz we are here to help.
