Make Your Interiors Shine with Superior Lighting Design


How Tunable Lighting Makes Everything Look Better

Have you ever walked into a room and been struck by the lighting? Perhaps it was too bright. Or maybe the light was too “cold.” Maybe there wasn’t enough light. Or possibly there was natural light available, and it wasn’t being used well. 

Good lighting design is part art and part science. The science comes into how to design lighting sources that provide enough light for specific purposes and give precise ways to control it. The art comes into using creativity with light to make interior details more attractive and noticeable. 

One of the newer features on the science end of lighting design is tunable lighting. Tunable lighting adds to the scientific lighting toolset and opens new creative, artful uses of light for your Charlotte, NC home. Explore more about tunable lighting and its benefits below!

Reimagine Your Lighting Designs with REVI Downlighting


The REVI Low-Voltage Lighting Solution is Beautiful, Flexible, and Efficient

As an architect, designer, or home builder, you likely know how LED technology has revolutionized lighting. LED technology has enabled features like tunable lighting, which can vary white color temperature and illuminate with a rainbow of customizable colors. LED lighting is 80% more efficient than incandescent lighting, enabling far more efficient use of energy. And the compact, low heat emission nature of LED has also allowed for new lighting designs and fixtures that other technology can't match.

LED technology’s low energy use allows for low voltage lighting solutions that still provide the brightness and intensity of line voltage lighting. Low voltage has been used in outdoor lighting for years, but only recently with LED technology has it been able to meet the performance criteria for indoor lighting. One of the best solutions in high-performance low-voltage indoor lighting comes from Environmental Lights’ REVI line.
