Home Lighting Design

Lighting for your home is an element that sets the tone, the mood, the scene of an interior space. Each room requires properly planned lighting that is functional but can also be aesthetically decorative when necessary.

Proper lighting can be tricky because of the types of switches and electrical complexities. At SolidACE, not only do we design your new home or remodel, but we also incorporate proper lighting design.

To get maximum enjoyment out of your new space, we always place three major functions in designing  your lighting system: 

1.Ambient Light  

ambient lighting

The general brightness needed in any given room is ambient light. It is created with fixtures such as lamps or ceiling bulbs in order to set the stage for each room’s function and feel—traditional, simple, elegant, formal, casual, etc. Natural light may be used in conjunction with the artificial bulbs for added brightness during the day. Sunlight can enter the home through windows, skylights.

2.Task Light

task light

Task lighting is really for the different task you do withing your space,your kitchen, study areas, and office spaces require task lighting to be fully functional. You will be best served while reading or cooking when the task lights are on. This type requires special fixtures, pendant lights, separate circuit recessed can lights, track lights, or lamps. We prefer designing spaces with the task light on its own switch so that it won’t interfere with the ambient light and can be turned on as needed.

3.Mood Light

Relax and set the scene with mood lighting in the form of a spotlight on a specific decoration or piece of art, special fixtures, or even with candles. Mood lights usually allow more darkness in the room when tasks are finished and natural light is minimal. This can also be in the form of dimmed ambient or task lights, which can be turned down with a dimmer switch. 

While designing your new home or remodel, we include a detailed Lighting Schematic that addresses each of these options. Please give us a call SolidAce Construction & Development Corp. at Dr. V.

Efficient Use of Home Space

A great home space usage design is really important. Keeping in mind how the inhabitants of a home will use a space to its full potential is crucial in remodeling/constructing new homes!

Use your home space wisely!!!

Plan for foot Traffic: The ebb and flow of people and pets through each room is the first consideration with the use of your space. Using your space correctly by placing/planning furniture and appliances in such a way to improve traffic flow through your home, will let you enjoy all the potential your space has to offer.

Plan for Functionality: Room layout and its furniture should be conducive to however you intend to use it – the kitchen for cooking, dining, and entertaining, the living room for conversation, watching TV, or relaxing, and so on. So if your dining room is not working for comfortably eating a meal around the table, it might be time for a re-design or reorganization of the space.

 Plan for  Aesthetic: It’s important that you love to live in your home! Giving extra effort in designing a space to maximize its aesthetic appeal to YOU- the most important person who will use the space is always a priority! Even if the traffic through your space is fluid and the space is working for your needs, sometimes a re-design is needed so that you can feel happier in your home.  

Plan for Cost : If you may be remodeling or building, using your space efficiently can save you time and money. Multiple use of the same areas can be pleasing while taking care of traffic flow, functionality and aesthetics. 

If your home’s spaces are making it difficult to use your space to its full potential, Please give us a call SolidAce Construction & Development Corp. at Dr. V. Locsin Street Dumaguete City or call 035 422-9478,226-2880 and our team of experts can help  in your home design and remodeling needs.

Tropical Home Design Ideas

Being in a tropical country like the Philippines makes your options of home design simple. Back in the old days, people only wanted two things in home design, (1)A home that is dry (floods don’t get inside) and warm in the rainy season and (2) A home that is cool and refreshing in the brutal Philippine summer months.

  • Designing the house so that your bedrooms receive the breeze is a good idea and may save you from using air conditioning many nights.
  • A more open floor plan allows the air to circulate better throughout the house than closed off rooms.
  • Heat rises, so high ceilings are ideal for cooling rooms. In the Philippines, it doesn't cost that much more to make your room ceilings 10 feet high because the main difference is adding a few extra rows of concrete blocks.
  • Ceiling fans will help you to feel much cooler, especially in the kitchen. If you have high ceilings, you'll need extensions to drop the fan down so that the blades are at about 8 feet for the best effect. Ceiling fans don't use much more electricity than a A/C window type unit.
  • Window design should be as tall and wide as you can afford. This helps to let out the hot air as well as to let in the breeze. Bigger windows will also reduce your need for using lights during the day. Larger windows will add to the expense, especially if you plan to put iron bars over them, but weigh the expense against the extra comfort over time.
  • A wide roof overhang helps to block the sun from the windows and help to prevent the rain from entering. To try plan for a few windows that can remain open during rainstorms, to keep the house cooler. The weather can be very humid when it rains.
  • Have much green space around your house as possible. Concrete absorbs the heat of the sun and retains it for a long time. If you have space for trees on the west side of your house, they will serve to keep your house cooler in the late afternoon, the hottest part of the day.
  • Plan your construction to allow for runoff water from tropical storms and prevent flooding. It's a good idea to elevate your home one to two feet or even more above ground level. Make sure that your landscaping slopes away from your home, not towards it and ensure that the water has some place to dissipate.
