The right lighting can not only brighten up every corner of your home but it can also add a touch of elegance and beauty. How? Take a look!
1. Romantic Lighting –
When you think of romantic lighting, you may picture crystal chandeliers and dimmed lights. You can certainly go that route, but romantic lighting is much more than that. Ideally, romantic lighting creates an ambiance that flatters both people and the room. Use layers of light to fill in dark corners without overpowering the space, and choose dimmers and bulbs that work well together to keep a warm light level without flickering. Romantic lighting extends to the dining room, where a well-proportioned chandelier with crystal accents can add sophistication and ambiance.
2. Kitchen Lighting –
Today’s kitchens are the central gathering place in the home. Whether you are remodelling or building from the ground up it is essential to plan your kitchen lighting to provide for a variety of functions – from a bright light for food preparation and cleaning to a softer, warmer light source for conversation and entertaining friends. Because your kitchen has so many functions, you will want to change the intensity of every light in the room. Don’t just buy a switch. Your budget should at least include basic dimmers that allow you to adjust the lighting to suit the requirements of any moment. More complex wireless lighting control systems are now available that are easy to install and relatively inexpensive.
3. Bathroom Lighting –
The bathroom is a private place that should provide a calm and quiet retreat from today’s hectic lifestyle. The right lighting can go a long way toward providing the right atmosphere. In the centre of the ceiling, a decorative light fixture that blends with the rest of your décor provides an elegant touch while providing adequate light for safety, cleaning and moving about. It also balances the brightness of other bathroom lights. Ceiling mount fixtures, small chandeliers and decorative vent fans are a few of the options for a well-outfitted bathroom.
4. Living Room –
Reading lamps should be placed next to the chair or sofa as these types of lamps provide a more focused, bright light to reduce eye fatigue. As we age, it becomes even more important to have appropriate light for tasks such as reading or hobby work to avoid eye strain. A lamp that is placed near an entertainment centre or TV should offer more diffuse light – which can be accomplished with an opaque shade. Make way for modern lighting in your home and see as your living space transforms right before your eyes!
