One of the main reasons that people want to have a custom home built s so that they have a house that is uniquely theirs. Sometimes it is because they have unique tastes or because they want to have a home that they can show to their clients and family that will wow them. Whatever the reason, a custom home gives people something that is uniquely theirs.
Everything in a custom home can be customized to your tastes, from the windows to the siding all the way down to the way the home is insulated. One of the ways that you can really make a statement is with the finishing’s and one of the finishing’s that is always left to the last minute is the light fixtures.
Light fixtures are one of the last things to be installed in a home, because of this people always wait till the last minute to find and buy their light fixtures. They end up having to settle for lighting that is more readily available, when something is readily available it is not custom, it is basically generic.
You should be taking more time to pick your lighting by starting earlier while the home is either still being designed or when it is early in the actual construction stages. This will allow you to find those unique light fixtures that suit your tastes and needs, but you should also be looking for something that is different then what everyone else has in their homes.
One of the best ways to insure that you get a light fixture that is fairly unique to only your home is to have the fixture custom made. There are a lot of artists and craftsmen that have small or medium sized businesses that make and create custom lighting fixtures.
Custom lighting can be made from anything from metal to wood to deer antlers. The only limitations to a custom lighting fixture is electrical codes (must be able to pass an electrical safety inspection before it is installed), the ability of the craftsmen making it, your own imagination and the amount of money that you want to spend.
The only other thing that you need to know about custom lighting fixtures is that in new homes they need to be installed by a licensed electrician.
So when you are looking to give your new home a unique look or feel look up above your head and get something that no one else has, get a custom light fixture.
