Enhanced Lighting

The number one design feature in any home is lighting. Having a good balance of lighting helps to create a sense of openness and gives any room a spacious, fresh feel. In order to achieve the right balance of lighting, you need to embrace as much natural light as possible. You can do this by opening up windows, ensuring any blinds and curtains can be drawn back properly to allow as much natural light to flow through as possible, as well as creating plenty of additional lighting in darker areas through lamps, ceiling lights and so on. It’s amazing how much of a difference lighting can make to a room and having the right balance can be the difference between a home feeling dull and lifeless, to it feeling open, fresh and inviting.

Smart Technology

Smart technology covers a huge range of unique products that make homelife simpler, from the Aqualisa Smart Shower enabling you to control your shower from your mobile phone, to Amazon’s Alexa providing on-demand information, music and much more by simple voice command. Whilst these features are constantly being adapted and improved, they are featuring in many homes across the world with many people relying on them for simple tasks such as creating a shopping list or warming up the water in the shower before you hop in.
