Wellness through design: How innovative lighting features enhance this Craftsman-style home in Canton
In today’s contemporary homes, lighting goes beyond functionality to become an integral part of shaping the ambiance and aesthetics of a home. More than just visual, thoughtful lighting choices help set the mood for each space, using strategic techniques to highlight architectural details, visually expand rooms and draw the eye to highlight focal points.
Lighting also supports the increasing focus on health in contemporary interior design. By mimicking the rhythms and cycles of natural light, innovative lighting options have been shown to promote circadian health, improve mood, and enhance cognitive function.
From statement chandeliers to the soft glow of backlights, creative lighting options give homeowners the opportunity to personalize their spaces, enhance comfort and bring their own unique style to their living spaces. With endless options now available, lighting has the power to transform simple homes into comfortable, contemporary homes.
