Share your awesome accent lighting
I was hoping we could brainstorm lighting and electrical upgrades (some electric eye candy). Here are the ideas we are planning to get the brainstorm started. Thanks!
1)Coloured cove lighting around a corner wet bar in the basement
2)2 spot pot lights to accent the fireplace and stone
3)LED lights to go around two interior windows
4)LED lights to accent a decorative shelf for a plate collection, another shelf for family photos and a trophy shelf for the kids in basement.
5)Dimmers most everywhere and lots of separate controls (not loving all the extra switches for this though).
6)Low voltage puck lights over both window seats
7)Low voltage lighting in backyard so that the eye is drawn outward at night and not stopped by the black windows.
8)Low voltage lighting directed to back of vanity and then two small wall sconces on either side of bathroom mirror for flattering light at vanity.
9)A switch to turn on the plug closest to our planned Xmas tree location so we can turn on the lights as we enter the room
10)Kill switches to turn off all basement lights from main floor, all upstairs lights from main floor and all lower level lights from upstairs (we are not great at turning lights off so this will make the job easier)
11)A switch in entry foyer that turns off the exterior plugs that will be used for outside Xmas lights.
12)Considering adding fiber optic lights to accent the basement ceiling. This is the older kids' hangout so we want some cool effects here.
Aside from general task lighting, please tell me what extras you are adding to your lighting scheme? What upgrades in electrical are you considering for accent lighting, convenience or rough-ins for future needs? Looking forward to hearing your creative ideas.
