Next time you adjust you dim your lights, give a quick silent thank you to Joel Spira, Lutron Founder and Inventor of the Dimmer Switch.
Before 1961, our household had no option but to either have the lights on or off. Light a candle for ambiance!
It’s 2015 and dimmers have changed quite a bit since their inception. And they are the epicenter to the ambiance of each room in your home. This tiny barely noticeable switch in your room is also what affords your room its grace and polish. It might not be conscious, but these small details are what elevate a space and set your home apart from others in the market.
At Electrika, we can separate out your different tiers of lighting and put them on different switches. This way you can do things like turn off all the lights in your kitchen, but leave your accent lighting on. Put half of your recessed lights on one switch, the other half on other. Organize your dimmers and switches according to task sets that take place in that room i.e. Your Living Room: lights that brighten a space to allow for ambitious kid-friendly activities during play time, then change the setting to your low accent lighting for those moments you’re binge-watching your latest tv series, or just control those few task lights that allow you to read by the fire.
Another small detail that will update your space to contemporary needs is the USB outlet. Such a simple upgrade! And endlessly useful for all your household devices.
