Why Lighting Design Is Essential in Your Home


Discover the Benefits of Lighting Design and How to Reduce the Cost

As the American artist James Turrell stated, “Light is not so much something that reveals, as it is itself the revelation.” As technology has advanced, lighting has indeed become the centerpiece of a home’s design, turning the ordinary into the extraordinary. 

At Sierra Integrated Systems, we incorporate the latest technology into our lighting design, using light as an artist uses a paintbrush. Here, we’ll explore the importance of lighting design and how we bring quality lighting to your home in Incline Village, NV.

Why Is Lighting Design Important?

The right lighting can transform a room. It highlights the finest architectural features, brings warmth and life, and can enliven even the smallest of spaces. For many interior designers, lighting is one of the most important elements, creating unique perceptions, adding depth, and enhancing the aesthetics and mood in every room.

Do you want an open and airy or cozy and warm feeling? The right lighting can accomplish this and much more. In essence, lighting brings out the best in your home. It can also bring out the best in you. 

Researchers studying the effects of light on humans find that it affects our moods, memory, and the quality of our sleep. Pretty important stuff. Integrating the right temperature and intensity of light throughout the day brings your sleep-wake cycle back into balance, promoting relaxation in the evening and enhanced energy during the day.

Of course, the right lighting design is also about functionality. Layers of light create the ideal illumination for life’s many activities while ensuring your safety. 

What Do Lighting Designers Charge?

Hiring lighting designers can come at a significant cost. Generally, architectural lighting designers may charge between $125 to $250 per hour. Flat rates may reach up to $10,000 or more, depending on the scope of the project. Nationally, their average costs range from about $5,000 to $6,100.
