Hardware and Lighting

 

Though it might seem easy to overlook, the lighting in a room is important.

Choosing between central overhead lighting, standing and tableside lamps, wall-mounted fixtures, and natural light sources confers different energy and purpose to a room.  Even something as subtle as the warmth of the lighting in a room can make a huge difference to how you, your family, and your guests feel in a room.

With this in mind, we take the time to communicate with you about the various uses you will want out of your room, and how lighting will practically, aesthetically and emotionally impact those situations.  Warm light is inviting and relaxing, putting people at ease; it looks more like a firelight or sunsets.  Cooler light, conversely, keeps people more alert, observant, and attentive; it looks more like daylight.

Often our clients “know it when they see it” when it comes to good lighting, but can’t quite visualize what will work best in their space and it isn’t a simple redressing of what is already there.  This is where the decades of experience and professional tier creativity and visualization skills of our designers come in to make all the difference.  We can plan out an effective design for lighting your rooms so that they transition from daytime to evening use seamlessly, with natural light giving way to artificial at-need and fixtures that help to complete the look of the room.

Another consideration overall is the hardware that accents the look of your room, adorning doors, cabinets, and other built-in pieces of your room in such a way that compliments how the entire space looks and feels. It’s these kinds of subtle touches, the jewelry of the room we like to say, that might be an afterthought or overwhelming when tackling design by yourself but makes the advantages of working with Centerline Design obvious.

 

The Lighting and Hardware Process

As with all of our projects, we start with you and your wants and needs.  We will fully consider your wishlist, the themes you’ve set for us, and the room concepts that resonate with you when choosing fixtures, accent lighting, and hardware for your room.  The key here is communication and understanding of your tastes and needs.

Often the specifics of your lighting and hardware will be decided after most of the other major factors of your interior decorative design have been established, such as what [Fabrics[link]] and [Colors[link]] will create the theme of the room.

This means that the lighting and hardware will help to cement the room’s look or to establish a connection between rooms that don’t have much else in common.  In this way, lighting and hardware help to transition your house from a series of individual rooms into a coherent home.

The difference between highly intentional design choices about lighting and hardware and a more haphazard approach is subtle to the untrained observer but can be very jarring for close observers on an intuitive level.  Make sure you don’t neglect this important facet of your home by working with the professionals at Centerline Design.

Wallpaper & Colors

Every type of space, every home, and every family has different tastes and needs.  Our diverse team of designers understands that your identity and desires need to be at the forefront of every design project.  This is why Centerline Design does not have a single “look” or dominant aesthetic, but a team of experts with a range of skills that complement and support each other on the journey to your perfected home.

Our focus on you is what sets us apart from most design firms.  We collaborate frequently on an ongoing basis with you, running several design concepts and versions by you to best understand what makes the most sense for both your lifestyle and your budget.  While we are very cognizant of trends and we’re proud to be lifelong learners who remain current with technologies and designs as they evolve, we are always aware that we are designing for you.  This is why we remain firmly committed to the foundational principles of design, instead of chasing the most recent fads and fashions.

We never forget that after the design phase is done and your space has been remodeled in accordance with our shared vision, you and your family will need to live in the space for decades to come.  So, while we feel that a beautiful and artful design is an important part of making your space the best it can be, we always place an emphasis on simplicity and functionality above pure aesthetics.  After all, the true goal of remodeling is to make a space more perfect, not just to make it more appealing. 

Once finalized, our talented design team works with you, the homeowners, to select all the little details that make it unique: countertops, cabinetry, and appliances, tile, lighting, hardware right down to the window treatments, furnishings and furniture; every hardscaped decorative element of the space is balanced with its utility and your tastes.  Your kitchen, bathroom, living space, bedroom, or other space will reflect your aesthetic wishes and practical needs.

When a design has been completed, Centerline provides detailed drawings and specifications in order to allow contractors and installers to bring this vision to fruition in your home.
