Elevate Your Home’s Illumination with LED Lighting

LED Lighting Adds Design Flair with the Bonus of Efficiency and Longevity

Elevate Your Home’s Illumination with LED Lighting

Lighting is a critical element of any home. How many times have you looked at a prospective home and made a gut decision based on the lighting? It might be more times than you'd think. A dark home will not look inviting, and a poorly lit kitchen might lack the bright ambiance you'd prefer for the many activities that occur in an important home hub.

With the right imagination, the proper lighting can cure many ills in a house. The good news is that there are more options than ever for using light creatively in your home, and LED lighting technology is leading the way. LED technology lasts up to 20 times longer than incandescent and is 80% more efficient as well. Moreover, since LED fixtures and bulbs generate far less heat, they make the HVAC system work less in warmer seasons, too.

If these were the only benefits, LED lighting would already be a smart decision for your home lighting design in Bernardsville, NJ. But the LED story gets better ­– keep reading for more.

Go Beyond Convenience in you New Vernon Home

Learn How to Make the Most of Your Motorized Shades

At Bravo AV, we love motorized shades. You could say we think they're the best invention since sliced bread. In all seriousness, though, there are serious benefits to motorized shades in your New Vernon, NJ home.

We've told you about some of them before. There's an undeniable convenience factor when you can push a button to raise or lower a shade or a whole roomful of shades. And if someone in your family has a disability or even a temporary injury, that convenience turns into a really valuable benefit.

But there are additional ways you can enhance your living spaces with motorized and automated shades and window treatments, especially when you integrate them with other smart home features.

Master Your Home Lighting with Motorized Shades

What do you think of when someone mentions motorized shades? The first thing that might come to mind is convenience. Perhaps you think about them in the same way power windows were thought of for automobiles 30 years ago. Power windows were an optional luxury then. Try to find a new model car with hand-cranked roll-up windows today.

The point is, many things that start as luxuries quickly become so useful that they become mainstream, familiar, and often more affordable. That's the way we think about motorized shades. While they may not be in every home, there are excellent reasons why they are a valuable addition to your Bernardsville NJ home.

Beyond the sheer convenience of controlling shades and window treatments with a button rather than a cord or some other mechanism, there is the benefit of managing light in your home. Home lighting is more than just your artificial lights; it's also controlling and harnessing the natural light that enters your home. That's the critical benefit motorized shades bring to the table.
