Lighting

We are an electrician in Denver who believes that adding new lighting complements the style and functionality of your home. Call Dutch Creek Electric to have us install some new lighting in your home.

Lighting Styles

Traditional: Fixtures in this category include elements and details reminiscent of antiques and furniture both European and American. This also includes fixtures which are time-period specific, such as Victorian, Arts and Crafts, and Mission.

Transitional: Fixtures in this category have simple lines and a cleaner shape. These fixtures can be inspired by traditional fixtures, but they tend to be less complex in their details and more open and simple in their construction.

Contemporary: Dutch Creek Electric is an electrician in Denver that also provides contemporary lighting. Fixtures in this category have clean geometric outlines. The inspiration for these fixtures is drawn from manufacturing/architecture and organic forms. This category has transitioned into some darker finishes and softer shapes, often referred as soft contemporary.

Kitchen Lighting

Since there are many tasks performed in the kitchen your lighting should be functional first, and then decorative. Bright, well-diffused, evenly spaced lighting sources from the ceiling are a dependable way to make sure all open spaces are free of annoying shadows or glare.

The ceiling light should also illuminate the inside of the kitchen cabinets. Be careful to space your recessed lighting to provide lighting on the cabinets and counters.

As an electrician in Denver, we feel that work areas need task lighting. Under cabinet fixtures make great task lights. You can also use recess or surface spot lights over sinks, range tops and breakfast bars. Low profile fluorescents can be used for selected task areas such as a menu-planning desk.

Kitchens used for dining and snacking can use more decorative lighting to carry out the theme. You might want the overhead general light and the decorative chain-hung for the eating area to be of the same family of lights.

Outdoor Lighting – Beauty and Safety

The front porch lighting, as well as overall outdoor lighting, is the first thing welcoming your guest as they approach your home. We are an electrician in Denver that believes that outdoor lighting creates the first impression of your home, particularly in the evening. It is important to take extra time in selecting the proper light and styles for both attractiveness and security. Outdoor lighting is available in many styles just like interior lighting, so you can easily harmonize the lighting with the architecture of your home.

When planning your lighting, consider the extra safety and security that can be provided by adequate outdoor lighting. Good lighting inside and outside the garage with switches in the house as well as in the garage are safety measures you’ll want to include.

Many people prefer to use energy saving fluorescent products to save money on utility bills while still allowing generous light levels. There can be concern over the temperature affecting the starting of compact fluorescent bulbs, but most will operate well down to 25 degrees Fahrenheit.

Good outdoor lighting is one of the least expensive and one of the most effective security measures you can take. Combined with the aesthetic benefits to your home, it’s definitely a worthwhile investment!
