Tips For Adding Lighting To Your Space

lighting your space

Designer’s Mark can assist with any lighting project, whether you’re considering track installation or a system to enhance an art collection or event space. We work with exceptional brands that offer customizable systems and pieces made-to-order that not only illuminate a space but create a unique statement.

Innovative Lighting Tips & Trends

Transparent glass pendants and ambient wall scones such as those offered from SkLO are beautiful yet forward-thinking in design and placement. Get experimental and creative with the SkLO float pendant or the sleek, minimalist Klee floor lamp from Tech Lighting.

We also recommend installing energy efficient and stylish dimmer switches where you can adjust light to a room. Add accent lighting to dark spaces such as corners, pantry, and closets. Wall sconces also add a nice touch of ambient light to a space.

Switch to energy efficient compact fluorescent lights (CLFs) or light-emitting diode (LED) light bulbs. CLFs use at least ⅓ less energy than traditional incandescent light bulbs and last up to 15 times longer. LEDs also use ⅓ less energy and are available in cool (ideal for a workspace) or warm light (ideal for accent lighting).

Another useful tip is to maximize natural light entering your space by keeping windows and sliding doors clean and dust free.
