Let There Be Light!
For any home to be at its best, the right kind of lighting is essential. Good home lighting is based on certain principles, which if followed to the T, will give you some spectacular results. When you are evaluating your home for lighting, here are a few things that you should keep in mind - every room has a different requirement and your lighting will have to suit this purpose.
For example, the living room has a multi-functional purpose - it can be used to lounge about in, read a book, relax, entertain friends etc. Your lighting fixtures here will have to flexible. Use lamps and ceiling fixtures that have dimmers. This way you can easily change the lighting to suit the mood of the room at that particular time. In the living room you can have a combination of ceiling lights, table lamps and floor lamps. You can even mix in a few wall lights as well.
Another place that will require a good style of lighting is the kitchen. Make sure that the working area of the kitchen has the illumination it needs. You could combine it with some natural lighting elements as well to bring about an open and airy feel to the room. The bathroom is a place that requires strong lighting. We tend to spend a great deal of time here grooming ourselves and you will want to see rather clearly what you are up to.
The bedroom has become the new living room. Many families consider this an extension of the living room - children hang around here, do their homework, watch TV etc. All of this will again require multi-purpose lighting. Introducing dimmers or a mix of bright and subtle lighting will go well in the bedroom. Sometimes, you need to be able to relax here as well and you wouldn’t want any bright lights bothering you.
Investing in the right type of fixtures is essential to getting the lighting pattern in your home done well. Calling in a specialist would help as they will be able to ascertain the size of room and the kind of power you will need. An interior designer will help you decide on aesthetic fixtures that will fit in well with your décor and which will not clash with any other form of lighting that you may have.
Getting the lighting right in your home will ensure that you have a home that you will love to show off.
