| ||Well designed and safely installed lighting systems make a home safer, more practical, and more enjoyable to live in. This book is a comprehensive guide to using natural and artificial light in the home and landscape. Lighting Design & Installation is divided into two main sections. The design portion of the book teaches the principles used by interior designers to create lighting schemes that are not only practical, but serve to unify the overall look and atmosphere of a home. In addition to traditional wired lighting, this section also examines how fabrics, surfaces, and windows impact the lighting scheme of a home.
Then, an in-depth installation section shows the detailed step-by-step processes for installing all types of lighting fixtures and systems, including traditional incandescent and fluorescent lighting fixtures, track lighting, recessed lighting, low-voltage accent and undercounter lighting, and outdoor low-voltage and solar-powered lighting. The book also presents information on programmable, automated lighting systems.
Lighting Design & Installation is a refreshingly new kind of lighting book, bringing together the very best, most current information on lighting design and do-it-yourself installation.
