Lighting: The Heart of Your Home

June 10, 2019

Whether you realise it or not, lighting is integral to your home. It’s the first thing you switch on in the morning and the last thing you switch off at night – it starts and ends your day. How you use your lighting can create a design feature in the home, or simply set the mood. Lighting levels are such a personal thing and everyone has their own preferences for exactly how they like it.

Lighting is the perfect way of establishing atmosphere. You wouldn’t have the same lighting level for cleaning the kitchen as you would for a relaxed night in watching films. Dimmer lighting creates a more chilled out and comfortable environment in the home, perfect for winding down a long day and transitioning into the evening. Sometimes, brighter lighting is necessary. For instance, when it is first thing in the morning, bright lighting provides a great way to start your day, particularly in winter when it might still be dark outside. Each lighting level suits a particular purpose in your home. That’s why we offer daylight harvesting features on our lighting controls, which maximise natural light and boost home lighting when dark mornings and evenings draw in.

As well as creating a mood, lighting can also be part of the interior design in your home. It can be used to highlight certain features, such as a statement wallpaper wall or a reading nook. Choose your lighting carefully to ensure it complements the rest of your home décor. You can also use your lighting accessories to make a design statement. Designer fixtures and switch plates, although small, can make a big impact on a room.

Make your lighting personal by choosing accessories which complement your chosen interior design style. We have a range of switches and plates in varying styles, so there’s something for every type of home. Our Victorian collection is perfect for a home with turn-of-the-century flair. The stepped edge design has a traditional style which will contribute to any classically decorated home. On the other end of the spectrum, our Penthouse collection has the ultimate modern design. The flush fitting design has a sleek look, perfect for the contemporary home.

For the ultimate level of customisation, a lighting control system would allow you to tailor your lighting completely to your preferences. Wandsworth Controls is the perfect way to make sure your home lighting is always exactly how you like it. The app allows you to control your home lighting from the palm of your hand, with recommended lighting usage by room and sixteen programmable scenes. Switch all of your lights on or off with the touch of a button – it couldn’t be easier.

Your lighting truly is the heart of your home, but there’s so much more you can do to make it more personal to you and your home. To find out more about our switch plates or lighting controls, get in touch with us today on 01483 713400.
