Best tips for wonderful home lighting

Know the place you are lighting

If you follow some simple tips, it's easy to achieve the perfect look for a home.

Begin by knowing what region you are lighting. How big are these? What kind of atmosphere does that need? Are there areas or features that need to be emphasised? This will help determine your selection of lights in terms of color temperature – warm or cold – or whether direct, indirect, dispersed or reflected lighting needs to be.

The atmosphere also matters. Features such as dimmable light allow you in adjusting the lighting level of any room with the flick of a button.

The layout of rooms is another consideration, as it’s the type of furniture. Keep in mind that dark objects absorb light, while brighter articles reflect light. For example, a room with heavy curtains and the walnut-colored object will normally want more lighting than a room with light coloured fabric and furniture finishes.

While changing the color of light fittings and accessories is easy, keeping the ceiling color neutral or bright white is a good overall rule. This means that light can be directed onto the ceiling and evenly reflected across the room.

Experiment with a new lampshade

Add some lighting flare and experiment with LED globes in shades of lamps made from different materials. With improved technology, and because LEDs do not emit much heat, it is worth having fun and trying shades of lamps with different shapes and textures to make something special.

Experiment with different impacts of lighting

For better effect connected lights, for example, when normal lighting is dimmed in a dining room, make sure that the LED globes above that of the dining table are brighter so this area becomes a focus.

The method that fits good is that of layer lighting. The conceptual foundation is ambient light, that brightens up space & overall surfaces. It could be a series of downlights or cove lighting for example. To illuminate the task areas such as study desk or kitchen counters, add some task lighting. Be aware that unique lighting is needed for multiple tasks. Then use accent lighting, an effective method for accentuating features such as chandelier as a central feature of your living room.
