Installing custom lighting fixtures in your Raleigh, NC home is one way to imprint your personal taste on an area. At the same time, it is important not to go overboard. One must take care to see that the quantity of light is not compromised in the zeal to focus on the design. Custom lighting designs should be balanced. In order to get the best balance of illumination in most public areas of your home, one should generally opt for layers of light. A single source of light cannot function for multiple uses.
For example, if a custom made chandelier is bright enough to illuminate a room, then it might be too bright for comfort when dining. Likewise, if the chandelier is comfortable on the eyes during dining, it may be too dim and look flat when hosting party guests. When choosing custom lighting fixtures, start with a single large lighting fixture such as a custom chandelier in the middle of the room, and then proceed to custom lamps or other accent lights around this central fixture. This will keep the lighting balanced while providing the right light for the right circumstances.
