Adding lights as decorative elements helps set a mood in a space. Provided that general lighting is already installed using lights instead of wall art can be a decorative way to provide ambient lighting.
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.
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.
