At Ewing Electric CO., we are Charlotte, North Carolina’s leading experts in installing timed lights that can remarkably refine your home’s aesthetic features. From the way you experience color, to how you want to set the mood for the occasion, lighting is paramount to the success of your interior design.

Besides home security, the advantage of installing timed lights is never having to enter a dark space at the end of the day. Whether you’re using pendant lights, wall lights, or a reading lamp, it is important to consider the following tips before installing anything in your home.

Use warm lighting in areas that are intended for leisure and relaxation

When you’re off the clock, it’s time to put your feet up and relax. We recommend installing 2700k-3000k LED lights that provide warmth and bring out the beauty of wood in your home. LED lights put off less heat than traditional incandescent while providing a long-lasting light to any home. This solution saves time and money in the long run. You should also consider lampshades and to match your interior design when selecting what kind of light bulbs to buy.

Install pendant lights in the kitchen and dining room

The kitchen and dining room are where you will socialize and gather most frequently in your home. Pendant lights are great because they are as tasteful as they are useful. It is also important to note that setting the right tone for any occasion begins with the ability to control how illuminated you want the room to be. We recommend installing light dimmers that give you the power to decide the vibe at any given time.

Utilize sharper lighting in the bathroom

The bathroom is where you prepare yourself in the morning before work and in the evenings before you head out. It is paramount to make sure your lighting is as bright and clear as possible. A great way to get the most out of your bathroom lighting is to install two lights on either side of your mirror, or in the ceiling directly above the counter. This is where the light is focused solely on you and will cast minimum shadows.

Consider installing small accent lighting

Accent lighting can instantly change the feel of a room. If you are a collector of books, paintings, or otherworldly treasures, illuminating them with some soft accent lights can tastefully integrate them into the fabric of your home. Accent lights also make the small nooks and crannies more interesting and add more depth to your interior design. Specifically, when displaying novelties like paintings and sculptures, optimum lighting is required to properly observe every beautiful detail.

Install timers and motion sensors

We cannot stress this enough. There’s always a lingering threat of theft in any home, and in any area. The best thing you can do to prevent unwanted visitors from entering is to protect yourself by illuminating your home at set times. You will have complete control over when they will go on, and our team of expert installers are always happy to provide advice.
