A room can be completely transformed by lighting, yet the control of it via dimmers remains one of the most overlooked and underused aspects of home interior design.
Quality dimmers – such as those from Lutron, whose founder invented the electronic dimmer in 1961 – can be used in rooms to create dramatic or subtle changes of ambience, to suit both mood and occasion.
Dimmer switches also help save energy, as dimming a bulb’s light output will normally reduce its energy consumption and extend its life, whilst having only a minimal change in perceived light levels. By dimming lights by 10%, it is possible to save around 10% of energy.
What makes Lutron’s dimmers stand out, is an over-riding commitment to technology and design – which results in a significant ‘step-up’ from the usual dimmer experience.
This is because Lutron’s dimmers are designed by some of America’s best engineers, are made using top-quality materials and finally are tested far above industry standards.
This high-end engineering is complemented by a range of stylish, snap-on faceplates, to ensure the dimmers look as good as they function.
Lutron doesn’t offer the ‘clunky’ rotary switch system – instead, it provides more contemporary looks and greater control via slide, tap and Infrared functions.
The range includes:
- The slide-function Lyneo; Priced from £22.50 to £151.00.
The digital tap and IR-function Rania; Priced from £60.00 to £204.00.
The ‘Solina’, a dimmer for floor or table lamps; Priced from £32.00 to £40.00.
Lutron products are really easy to install – and come in a range of stylish colours and models.
