Lighting and Shades

Lighting Systems

 

Bright and cheerful or soft and romantic – you decide how you want your home to feel by choosing how to light it. Whether you control one room or the whole house, lighting options are easy and affordable for every home.

 

Lighting Systems for perfect control every time

 

Do you like it dim when you watch movies and bright for homework or cooking? Instead of searching for that perfect setting every time, one-touch shortcuts called “scenes” let you set a favorite light level once, then recall it with the touch of a button.

 

Add Comfort and Security to your Lighting System

 

Never come home to a dark house or rush to switch off lights when you leave. From the comfort and safety of your vehicle, you can turn on groups of lights by remote control as you arrive home or turn lights off as you pull out of the driveway.

 

Energy Saving Lighting Systems

 

Lighting empty rooms wastes energy and your money. Despite our best intentions, we all waste electricity by leaving lights on. In fact, lighting accounts for 20% of all electricity consumed in the U.S., and 50% of that is wasted with inefficient light sources or in unoccupied rooms. The good news is that you can automate your lights so they come on when you need them and go off when you don’t. Outdoor lighting can be controlled through motion sensors or programmed to come on at sunset .Indoor lighting can use sensors to automatically turn off when no one is in the room.

 

Dimmers are another great way to save energy. Dimming your lights by 25% (hardly noticeable to the human eye), reduces electricity consumption by 20% and quadruples the life of your bulbs. Ambient light sensors provide feedback to automatically adjust the lighting levels on your dimmers so you never use more light than you need, but always have enough.

 

Start slow if you want

 

Not sure what kind of lighting you will want down the road? No problem. As long as the control system is in place, your lighting can be easily upgraded later. A small investment in a “backbone” now will give you many options for comfort, style, and convenience in the future.

 


Sun Shades

 

Today’s homes are designed with more glass and larger windows to take advantage of daylight and bring the outside in. And it’s all for light – for the morning, for the sunset, for the water, for the golf views, and for the changing seasons. The warmth of natural light enhances the beauty, comfort, and the warmth of your home to add character and life. Daylight interacts with your home – your furnishings, your decor, and your architecture. It can transform a room and inspire your lifestyle.

 

Windows are a key design element in a residence. Daylight adds a comforting, refreshing quality to any room. However, achieving the greatest beauty and efficiency in each room means being able to control the light that surrounds you. Controlling daylight is an essential part of any space. Shades are a critical asset to any room.
