Working With Indianapolis Home Builders: Choosing Light Features

Penny Siml - Saturday, May 21, 2016



Thinking about your dream home? From the white marble floors in the kitchen to the outdoor dining room you’ve always wanted, building a custom home is exciting. With so many details to consider, Indianapolis home builders can help you make decisions and walk you through all of the different options.

 

One thing you might not have thought too much about yet is the lighting features in your home. Sure you thought about the chandelier in the entryway, but what about the lighting in your lower level bar? Or even about the light feature in your entryway? From dining room chandeliers to under counter lights,Indianapolis home builders help find the right style and design for any room.

 

Here are a few things to think about when choosing light features:

 

Dramatic Entryways

If the home you are designing has a grand foyer or even an elegant entryway, adding a large chandelier or even a modern pendant light can create a great first impression that will really wow your guests. Whether you are designing for a more modern look or rustic charm, the entryway is the perfect place to add a unique light feature in your custom home.

 

Cabinet Lights

Want to really impress your friends and guests? Cabinet lights add a sophisticated design element to your kitchen. If your cabinets have glass fronted displays or open space above them, then think about adding lighting to these areas. They are great for displaying your favorite dishes or accent pieces.

 

Under Counter Lights

Another great light feature for the kitchen is under counter lights. These lights are great for early mornings and late night snack trips to the kitchen. Typically, under counter lights are only visible when the rest of the room is dark, giving you enough light to comfortably and safely maneuver around the room. However, under counter lights are also great if the lights in your kitchen are blocked by the overhang from the cabinets. Under counter lights provide you with the right lighting for preparing meals and cleaning up after entertaining.

 

Lower Level Lighting

The lower level of your home is the perfect place for the family to spend time together, for your friends to gather around your custom bar, or for you to set up your home office. Whatever the purpose, you need lighting features to match the style. Think about recessed lights to add a more cozy and less invasive lighting option. Track lighting is great for lower levels because it allows you to direct the light exactly where you need it. For an upgraded lighting option, consider remote controlled light, so you never have to walk into a dark lower level or even dimmable lighting, so you can always set the mood.


Do you have some ideas for the type of light fixtures you want in your home? Indianapolis home builders can help you find the perfect lighting for any room.
