Lighting design for your home

Lighting in a home changes the mood of a room just as it does the perceived size of a room. Placement and type are important aspects of interior design, and they work in conjunction with colour selections, room size, availability of natural light and furniture selection. The elements that come together when the right lighting is achieved transform a room into a seamless combination of functionality and style.


The use of lighting can add to or subtract from the overall colours of a room or from only those surfaces the light is meant to enhance. Darker colours make a room feel smaller and cramped, while light-coloured walls do the opposite. The illusion of space is defined by light being reflected off the surfaces of the walls. In addition, directional lighting, such as a track light, can soften the wall colours. There are also recessed ceiling downlights, which can have a soft  downward glow, highlighting features and walkways. In all cases, these can affect how light or dark a coloured section can appear.

Directional Lighting

The lighting in a room either provides illumination for the entirety of the room or highlights very specific elements. Recessed low-glare directional LED downlights are a perfect example of positional lighting. Recessed into the ceiling, the adjustable lamp insert can be pointed at specific elements, such as a wall painting, a vase of flowers on a hallway table or onto a kitchen island. Special picture and mirror frames also have built-in lighting to highlight specific areas on a wall. Recessed or surface-mounted lighting can be used in floors and ceilings to create vertical beams of light as opposed to an overall glow from central light fixtures hanging from a ceiling.


One major role of lighting in the interior setting is functionality. Lighting needs to serve a purpose. Chandeliers are not only used in large, open foyers, hallways and rooms because of their centrally-themed placement, but also because they provide excellent illumination for the room. Wall lights add length and size, visually, to a hallway, as well as light the way. Considering the style of lighting required ensures you get the best directional or luminescent type for the setting, for example task-specific lighting for desks and other work areas, where functionality is more important than overall room illumination.

Exterior lighting for your business

In the daytime, commercial properties are easily visible to individuals driving, walking or driving by, but, at night, some commercial properties struggle to make their business, entryways and signage clearly visible. The addition of strategically-placed landscape lighting can make a huge impact both on the basic visibility of a commercial property, and also on the overall aesthetics of the commercial site. There are four distinct advantages to adding landscaping lighting to commercial properties.

Safety of property and people

One of the most immediate benefits of adding landscape lighting to commercial properties is the increase in personal safety for employees, customers and guests. Strategic landscape lighting reduces the likelihood of falls and trips, reducing potential liability for commercial property owners. In addition, landscape lighting can keep visitors and employees safe from thieves or other criminals by eliminating hiding places, and also reduces burglaries and property theft.

Stunning evening views

Landscape lighting can help create dramatic and beautiful views on commercial sites by highlighting property features, such as seasonal plants and flowers, water fountains and architectural focal points. When done correctly, landscape lighting on commercial sites offer flattering views of trees, plants, buildings and landscape décor that might otherwise look ordinary in the daytime. The neighbouring community also benefits by having a beautiful landscape to enjoy in the evening, increasing foot traffic and customer visits.

Competitive advantage

Commercial property owners who choose landscape lighting give their business a competitive edge over nearby businesses. Strategic landscape lighting allows nightime drivers and pedestrians to clearly see business signs, entrances, parking and walking areas. Creative lighting features also help businesses to stand out and attract positive attention.

Environmental benefits

Efficient exterior lighting provides green benefits to companies looking to make a positive impact on the local environment. Low voltage lights and solar lights require minimal electrical use while still providing beneficial evening light. In addition, the reduced energy usage results in lower utility costs.

We offer stunning, strategic exterior lighting for commercial sites. Property owners and managers reap tremendous benefits from a simple, but effective, addition to their commercial site. In addition to offering commercial exterior lighting services, we offer a full range of electrical services.
