Clean Design at Home

It all starts with the right lighting

No matter what kind of space you have, be it a dedicated media room, a simple TV nook or something in between, the fundamental components are comfort and the appropriate amount of lighting. For the majority of homeowners, most media-related activity takes place in a multi-use space, which means the lighting must have the flexibility to go from everyday activities to TV viewing.

Keep in mind that natural light from outside is as important as light from indoor fixtures. Multipurpose spaces generally have windows, which create the need to control that light during the daytime, as well as at night when even minor reflections can be distracting.

Erik Anderson, national sales manager for Lutron Electronics Co., says that when it comes to lighting, “the sun is light bulb number one.” He suggests using motorized shades, which can be retrofitted to an existing window as a convenient and effective way to manipulate ambient light. It is important to consider where your light is coming from as well as the time of day and season, which affect not only the amount of incoming light, but also the angle and intensity of the light.
