Dimmable light fixtures are a nice feature in any room. Because common spaces tend to be used for multiple purposes, having dimmers on all or most of your light fixtures is not only nice and practical, but it also gives you flexibility. This is best achieved by creating layered lighting, which is a mixture of ambient, task and accent lighting, such as:

  • Recessed lighting

  • Desk / Table lamps

  • Floor lamps

  • Wall sconces

While dimmer controls are pretty standard, not all dimmers are compatible with all bulbs. We suggest always consulting with an electrician before making any purchases.

We can advise you on the proper illumination for your bedrooms.


The easiest way to ensure that your home feels like a home away from home is by adding a few décor and accessory items, such as window treatments, area rugs, throws and accent pillows, artwork, etc. Some other simple things that will make your guests feel special and welcomed, are:
