Regarding the redecoration of your home, many people would probably say perfection lies within the details. So after you've selected your designer paints, custom fabrics, draperies and picked out high-end furnishings and artwork, take a moment to look around you.
There's a fair chance you may have overlooked one of the most basic, yet so important things. Because of that basic nature of their ordinary function, switches, outlets and dimmers are often overlooked details in home-renovating projects. With the raised attention given to proper home lighting, a greater number of architects, builders and design consultants add designer-styled switches, outlets and dimmers to the redecorating equation in their own way.
These affordable products can be the perfect finishing touch to a newly decorated room, adding benefits of practical use such as l convenience and energy savings, while being a nice addition to the home's décor.
Rocker-style switches, for instance, offer a contemporary, distinctive look for all sorts of rooms. Some versions emit a soft luminescent glow that guids you finding your way to them in darkened areas. Designer-style outlets are available in a variety of colors and textures that blend with most wall coverings.
With the problem of steadily rising energy costs in the back of the mind, replacing your light switches with dimmers may seem crazy, but a good dimmer will pay off in the long run. A dimmer enables you to adjust lighting for the mood and ambience you want to create, while at the same time helping you reducing lighting usage by up to 30 percent. Most models nowadays come with a preset switch that remembers the last selected brightness level. Installing a dimmer is as easy as installing a light switch.
An occupancy sensor can easily replace a standard light switch and automatically turn lighting on when you enter a room and off once you left it. These devices feature designer styling instead of this typical, clunky "scanning device" look. These sensors give you the joy of the hands-free lights magic when you enter the kitchen with an armful of packages.
Whatever it is that needs a decorative touch, designer-style wiring devices and wall plates are available in a wide range of styles and colors to beautify your home's décor.
