The popularity of open floor plans continues to rise in homes across the nation because of the many benefits they provide. However, many people may not consider the challenges an open layout can pose when it comes to creating idea lighting schemes for each room in the home.
Lighting Designs, Home Trends & Color Consistency – The Challenge
Did you know that color temperature variation becomes much more obvious in an open floor plan? Therefore, our team recommends avoiding incorporating bulb options – such as LED, halogen and incandescent sources – along the same sight lines.
Recently, Beazer Home’s CEO Allan Merrill noticed differences in lighting color and quality when walking through completed homes. This observation catapulted a project now known as The Re-Imagined Beazer Home.
Lighting Designs, Home Trends & Color Consistency – The Solution
After this observation was brought to light, Beazer contacted Progress Lighting for training and guidance on best practices for creating optimal lighting layouts in their homes. The Progress Lighting team volunteered to examine a model home in Charleston, South Carolina – and develop the ideal lighting layout for today’s homeowner.
We have packaged this information in a beautiful case study that shows the difference lighting makes in a home – with tips, home lighting trends and before and after images to explore.
Whether a homebuilder, interior designer or DIY enthusiast who loves to entertain, we encourage you to consider how impactful and important lighting choices can be! Read the case study here today!
