Lutron Nova T dimmers:
Several of our clever neighbors have installed dimmer switches on their lights and it really seems to make a differnece in their places. The lights on our mezzanine level are usually way too bright, but having them off isn't really an option. I checked out Lowe's for dimmers but the ones there are pretty utilitarian in appeareance. not like these "architectural grade' dimmers from Lutron in Satin Nickel or Anodized Aluminum finishes (among others). I love them. And they even have outlet covers that match. However, at about $50 each, I guess we first need to decide how long we're going to stay here.
