Some Home Lighting Ideas

By Scott Rodgers

Lighting of your house is one of its most important aspects. The best of settings are only accentuated by good and adequate lighting. Improper lighting can destroy the whole look of a room and all your efforts that you might have spent decorating it will go waste. So, choose lights that fulfill your requirements and at the same time enhance the beauty of the place.

For a bedroom, you must have lights that help you do your work comfortably and should also give a good look as it is the place where you relax and sleep. You can go for florescent lights as they produce white light and are low on power thus saving electricity. CFL is a good option and you can get a variety of designs in it.

Many people are into a habit of reading before going to sleep. For this, you can have a night lamp on the side table. For the dressing table, you should have focused light placed just above it so that the light produced is shadow free and you can comfortably dress up your self.

The lighting style of a living room is majorly dependent on its size. If it is large room with enough open space, then soft lighting will be the most suitable option and you can also highlight certain areas you want to.

If your house or living room has limited space, bright lighting is recommended in this case. This will make your room look larger than it is. A light focused on the ceiling would give it a higher and larger look.

If you are fond of artworks or paintings etc, place it where it draws the maximum attention and enhance it greatly by a focus light. Keep the rest of the lighting around these specific points or articles comparatively dim, so as not to take the attention away.

For kid's room, you can get bright colored lamps with fancy shades. Ensure that the switch is near the bed so that children can use it comfortably.

Your requirements for a hobby room would be more simple, but functional, and would fit the exact need for the specific hobby " be it painting, or carpentry. The lighting should facilitate the functional requirements, and must complement your furniture. - 29857
