Lighting Options That Impact Your Home’s Ambiance
Lighting is a vital part of making any room feel brighter, roomier, and more appealing. A room can change drastically just by changing the lights. Here are a few tricks to help you achieve the perfectly lit room.
Ambient Lighting: Chose your lighting fixtures based off of the rooms’ purpose since certain rooms need brighter lights than others. Also consider the natural lighting of a room and take advantage of the sunlight as well as save money from the reduced electricity cost.
Dimmer Switches for More Control: Instead of installing a single intensity light, use a dimmer in multi-purpose rooms, making it more versatile for the whole family!
Accent Lighting: Accent lights draw attention to a room’s focal point, such as a fireplace, artwork or feature wall. Hang a light over the fire place, or set a lamp next to a piece of art you admire to draw attention to it. This will naturally draw any eye to the focal piece you want your guests to notice.
Task Lighting: Supplement ambient lighting with task lighting designed to provide light for a specific activity. Add lights based on a specific activity. This includes lights over the bathroom mirror, over the stove and countertops, or on bedside tables and desks.
