Pool Lighting For Safety
While swimming in an unlit pool in the dark isn't that dangerous, it can be when you think about it. What would happen if no one could see you and you had a cause to drown or get in trouble while swimming? What if you can't see well and you slip on or bump into something nearby, crashing your head before you fall into the pool?
Pool lighting can help to reduce the chances of accidents in and around your swimming pool areas. Plus, you'll love having pool lighting around your swimming pool area! Bringing in a little extra light in the pool area of your home gives you more options for using the pool after dark.
Being able to see when you're swimming at night time also helps keep you and your family safe from snakes or other varmints that may be prowling around looking for water sources.
Kitchen Lighting Installations
Is your kitchen area supplying you with sufficient lighting to see by while you prepare and cook your meals? When you work in your kitchen, poor lighting can only serve to be the cause of accidents. Kitchens can be dangerous areas if you can't see well enough to work safely in them. Adding lighting to your kitchen will not only help you see better but can enhance the look of your space. Commonly, we add under-counter lights, drop pendant lighting over bar areas or sinks, recessed lights for additional general lighting, and better more attractive fixtures.
Bathroom Lighting Installations
Your bathroom space might need additional lighting as well. Commonly, there is sufficient lighting installed around the mirror, but other places in the bathroom can be left dark by the builder. Is your shower area dark and gloomy? We can install a light for your shower to brighten it up some. Recessed lighting as additional lighting for the bathroom is non-intrusive and barely noticeable, yet highly functional. We have a lot of ideas for bathroom lighting installations that will improve your bathroom and home!
