Certain types of light, such as standard incandescents and uv-radiant fluorescents can have many damaging affects on paintings and print. Recessed art lights o that minimize the risk of light damage to colors, oils, and canvases themselves. Recessed art lights offer greater control of the overall lighting system itself, allowing for not only pinpoint placement of light but also measured quantities of light that deliver a high color rendering without harmful wavelengths that degrade art elements.
Recessed art lighting design goes far beyond generic wiring and fixture work. It requires an understanding of fundamental architectural theory and both mainstream and custom-home construction techniques allows us to select just the right fixture for a specific task.
Successful recessed art lighting also requires awareness that light must complement a work of art without distracting the viewer?s attention away from the art itself. Nothing is more unsightly than a gangly wire or a recessed art lighting fixture improperly fitted to the piece. Recessed art lights differ from functional lights in the way they place light upon a subject. Rather than illuminating an entire area in the same fashion as ceiling lights or lamps, recessed art lights selectively place only necessary elements of the visible spectrum in precise locations on the work of art itself. The more invisible a fixture or bulb is, the more aesthetic its effect will be on decorum.
Customers who invest in recessed art lights are in reality seeking to express an intangible sense of atmosphere and aesthetic through a unique combination of specific art lighting elements, degrees of illumination, and complementary sub themes within the home?s overall decorative theme. It should be the lighting designer?s first priority to make the intangible tangible by getting to know the client as an individual first and then extrapolating their general sense of vision into a specific plan for equipment and installation.
User-friendly, specialized dimmer switches allow those with little or no technical background to control light levels with a simple knob or switch. These can work very well with any number of fixtures and lighting control systems. Also, to create an aura of sophistication requires an extensive inventory of recessed art lighting bulbs and fixtures that allows for unique combinations and flexible installation strategies. Almost all recessed art lights require fine-tuning after installation in order to ensure their illumination output provides just the right amount of light for each particular work of art.
This is where the design element of our recessed art lighting comes into play, and normally requires the professional services of a trained and licensed electrician and lighting designer. Such professionals not only have access to commercial grade components that are superior in quality, longevity, performance, and versatility to retail equipment, but they also have strong creative thinking skills that work in tandem with precision technical skills.
