Lighting can completely change the mood of a space. Lighting is used for both function and form. Where you place the light source, the type of light source and how the source is controlled, all play key roles in getting the desired results. Even the light bulb you select can have a big impact on the space. Recessed lights for example, typically use light bulbs that are available in a variety of wattages and can vary in “beam spread” from 10 degrees to over 50 degrees. A 10 degree beam spread is a very narrow beam of light while a 50 degree beam spread is a flood of light over a large area. This one factor can make a huge difference in the way a space is illuminated.
The number of lighting choices available today can be intimidating. Standard incandescent lights, fluorescent, LED, halogen, and others each have different characteristics. Manufactures publish photometric charts that help us visualize how the lighting will work in a room. Knowing the desired results is a good start to the design plan. In a kitchen for example, people generally want nice bright lights without shadows in work spaces. “Layering” the lighting in a kitchen is a great way to have light where you need it while eliminating harsh light that is hard on your eyes.

I never write these things but as soon as Rodney left my apartment 15 min. ago with my power back on and running I felt compelled to do so. So after having a panic attack since 2am when my power went out because I needed to get online to study for an exam, instead of turning on my computer and getting right to it, I find myself here on yelp to make sure you're all aware of how great this guy is!
My mom called Rodney this morning from LA (where she lives) after se
I found this contractor on Yelp, and very happy I did.
Rod has completed the installation of 4 ceiling lamps in our home, as well as a variety of smaller, but tricky" fixes" ( old recessed lights that we had been told would need to be completely replaced, and that would mean tearing out the ceiling) as well as adding an outlet....
These guys were punctual, very knowledgeable and professional, and helpful. I thought their pricing was reasonable too.
Rod himself is an awesome person. He is very honest and a straigth shooter. He came on time, gave me a very competitive quote and also gave me great advice! Later, his crew came and did an excellent job. I couldn't be happier. I would use them again and I have no hesitation recommending him.
