- Comments Off on High-End Lighting: The Difference Between the DMV and the Beach
High-end lighting is likely to seem like an unnecessary luxury. What difference could it possibly make to include high-end designer table lamps, modern light fixtures, or contemporary lighting solutions? As your local lighting store, Taos Lifestyle knows how make-or-break lighting can be in your home.
Think of the places you feel most relaxed. Perhaps a cozy library comes to mind, the crackle of a campfire, a bay window overlooking the forest, the brilliance of the sun on the beach, or an airy atrium. At first, these places may seem all so different, but they have something important in common: warm light.
Be that natural or artificial, quality diffused light makes a difference in how we feel. In contrast, think of the places you least like to spend lots of time, like inside a fast-food chain restaurant or at the DMV. Sterile, cold lighting isn’t inviting or relaxing. It has an atmosphere of get-in-get-out. You probably don’t want to feel that way in your home.
Our Design Team knows this distinction. Everyone has a different home, and a different feeling they’d like to evoke. Bright and airy is an incredibly popular style, and if your home has less natural light than you’d like, we know how to optimize colors and fixtures to give you that effect. Modern chandeliers, table lamps, and contemporary floor lamps allow light to play in your space in unexpected ways. Light draws the eye and can highlight your favorite art piece or allow you to read in a formerly dark corner.
If you want to bring the coziness of a cabin in the woods and build the feel of a sanctuary away from the outside world, the use of small pools of warm light can make your space feel like the best place to be completely relaxed. A reading lamp in a nook and a rustic chandelier softly illuminating your dining table can provide that ineffable quality that makes a place intimate and snug.
We encourage you to re-think how light may impact your space. If you’re on a budget, but find your home feels out-of-date, trust us that rethinking your lighting plan can completely revolutionize your house. Taos Lifestyle has options for every style and possible lighting challenge.
