Partner with a Lighting Designer Early in the Process

Lighting Design with DMF’s Small-Aperture Fixtures

DMF’s LED Lighting Fixtures Aren’t One-Size-Fits-All

We’ve written on this blog about how the key to great lighting design is in layers. Ideally, a room shouldn’t be illuminated only by a few overhead lights. Mixing ambient, accent, and task lighting layers will bring depth and emotion to the room with the freedom to add or remove lights for life’s different activities. 

When we need to source LED lighting fixtures for a lighting design project, time and time again, we look to DMF Lighting. DMF engineers and manufactures high-end LED light fixtures with modular housings for its range of lighting products. DMF’s warm-dim and color-tunable technology make it the perfect choice for smart lighting control systems.

Last year, DMF unveiled its new small aperture downlight, a revolutionary product for the lighting industry. Here’s what small aperture lighting means and why it can do wonders for your Dallas, TX, home.

Transform Your Home with the Latest Lighting Design Trends

Today’s Lighting Design Combined with Smart Technology Creates Stunning Spaces

What’s the first thing you do when you wake in the morning and go to sleep at night? For many people, it’s turning on their lights. Whether flipping a light switch, controlling a dimmer, or tapping an in-wall keypad, light is with us 24/7 and enables us to complete our tasks and live in a beautiful environment. Like many things that have become commonplace, it’s easy to take it for granted.

Today, however, lighting technology is quickly evolving. Now, your lights can automatically illuminate in the morning and change color and intensity throughout the day. They can support your well-being by mimicking the sun's light and set the stage for every occasion with one tap on a touchscreen. 

Today’s designers and integrators consider the effect lighting has on one's moods and emotions, blending art and technology to create spaces that are both functional, breathtaking, and conducive to focus and relaxation.

To achieve this level of lighting design, you need an experienced smart lighting integrator. At Texadia Systems, we specialize in combining the latest technology with the best practices in residential lighting design. In this blog, we explore how our lighting design expertise helps to transform homes in Highland Park, TX, and the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Lighting Design for Superior Aesthetics & Smart Control 

Lighting design is all about the human experience. It’s where technology and art collide, transforming a space’s atmosphere through curated colors and brightness levels. 

But lighting can pose its challenges for homeowners and interior designers. Wooden ceilings are a charming, rustic addition to any interior, but it doesn’t suit many recessed lighting fixtures. The flange and trim stick out like a sore thumb against the wood, ruining the design. 

Luckily, one of our favorite lighting manufacturers, DMF Lighting, has a solution for wood ceilings. DMF’s new M-Series fixtures blend perfectly in wooden ceiling finishes and are built for DMF’s smart LED lights, which can be intelligently controlled through smart home systems. 

Here’s what makes the M-Series so valuable to any lighting design project!
