Think about the mood you want to create in each room. Different types of lighting can create different atmospheres, so choose accordingly. For example, accent lighting is perfect for creating a cozy, intimate feeling in a room, while task lighting is ideal for brightening up a workspace.


Remember Size & Layout

Be sure to consider the size and layout of each room when selecting lighting fixtures. You'll want to make sure the fixtures you choose are in proportion to the room and that they provide the right amount of light.


Consider The Style Of Your Custom Home

You'll want to think about the overall style of your home. Do you want a more traditional look, or are you going for a more modern aesthetic? Once you've decided on the overall style, you can start narrowing down your choices. For a traditional look, you might want to go with brass or bronze fixtures. These classic materials will add a touch of elegance to any space. If you're going for a more modern look, you might want to consider fixtures made of stainless steel or glass. These materials can help give your home a sleek, contemporary feel.


How Does The Space Itself Function?

Another thing to consider is the function of the space. You'll want to make sure you choose fixtures that will provide adequate light for the specific room. For example, you might want to put brighter fixtures in your kitchen or bathroom to help with tasks that require more light.


Lighting Fixture Budget
