Why Lighting Design Matters
Lighting design is an essential part of your home’s interior and exterior design. An intelligent lighting scheme has the power to completely transform the look of your home and bring out your building’s true beauty. Along with elevating each of your rooms from fine to fabulous, smart lighting design will work with your natural light, help to make energy efficiency easy and help to improve your mood, boost wellbeing and promote productivity.

Lighting & Interior Design
Lighting design is one of the most important aspects of interior design; a strong lighting scheme will enhance every aspect of your home. From highlighting architectural features and impacting the perceived size of your space to altering your room’s ambience and affecting the mood of each occupant.
Our Control4 home automation lighting designers and technicians understand how light works and will react to different areas, places and surfaces throughout your home. And we’ll use our knowledge of light and texture, light and form, light and surfaces and light and colour to bring out the beauty of your building. Making sure every inch of your space looks fantastic, and each room is illuminated in the best way for your needs.
Natural & Artificial Light
Good lighting design also considers the characteristics of natural and artificial light and how they both work together throughout your home. Depending on the availability of daylight in your rooms — and how the light changes throughout the day and year — your lighting designer may suggest automatic shading. Shading will help to cut glare and to reduce the potential risk of UV damage to your furniture.
Automatic shading can be incorporated into your home automation lighting design, ensuring you make the most of any natural light. Your blinds or curtains can be pre-set to adjust to the time of the day automatically. And can work in conjunction with your internal and external lighting systems, making your home more energy-efficient.
Colour Temperature & Mood
Have you ever noticed how the hue of a room affects how you feel? The colour temperature of your lighting can create this manufacture of mood. Red or yellow light works to create a cosy, warm atmosphere, helping to promote feelings of contentment and relaxation. With blue or green-tinted lighting creating a calmer mood and improving concentration and productivity.
Home automation lighting design will consider colour temperature, helping you achieve the ideal colour balance and the perfect mood for each room’s main activity. But what about spaces used for a variety of activities?
With smart lighting automation, you can create multiple moods in one room. Achieve the perfect ambience in your dining room, whether you’re enjoying a romantic meal for two or you’re using it as a workspace.
