Hidden light above the shelves keeps the spacious great room from HGTV Dream Home 2015 light even after dark. “On the darkest of dark days when it has been raining, it still feels light and bright and airy,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum. “I think that for this part of the country, it’s ingenious. It just has a really beautiful quality of life when you’re inside the home in this great room.”
Lighting gives this contemporary California patio an added element of drama. Limestone steps and seating feature hidden lighting for function and convenience. Meanwhile, blue-tinted lighting accents the hot tub and infinity-edge pool, echoing the beauty of the lake and sky beyond.
Full of elegance, this white traditional kitchen is overrunning with elaborate details. Recessed lights in the ceiling, hidden lights in the glass front cabinets, and under cabinet lighting make this space alluring and warm. The embellished brown drapes pair fabulously with the tan marble countertop and backsplash.
Fling open your closet door and a motion sensing 10-LED wireless sensor closet light will turn on. It features LED FloodLight technology, for ultra-bright, glare-free light that lets you clearly see the colors of clothing. It’s easy to install and if you remove it from the wall bracket, it can double as an emergency flashlight.
This open kitchen shelving provides a handy spot for stowing plates, bowls and glassware. Positioned in front of a backsplash designed from marble mosaic hexagon tiles, the shelving is illuminated by convenient hidden side lights.
An advantage of installing recessed "eyeball" lights is the ease with which they can be focused on any part of the room you're trying to draw attention. In this rich bedroom retreat, smaller recessed lights are used around the entire room, along with hidden accent lights above the headboard and antique bedside sconces to create a soft, ambient feel.
