Well-Designed Home Lighting Tips
If the lights in your home are well-designed and follow a carefully drafted plan, your home will become more comfortable and beautiful. Nothing is worse than a beautifully decorated home with poor lighting or blinding lights throughout the space. This is why lighting projects should be included in your interior design project. Don't just buy a reproduction antique light after you are done decorating to find out that the fixture is out of tune with the rest of the décor.
One big mistake many people make when decorating their homes is to illuminate the whole space on an even level. They do this by using target lights, for example, embedded in the ceiling. However, these lights will only create artificial illumination and will not highlight your home and your decorations beautifully like an excellent reproduction antique light would. It would help to opt for different types of lamps throughout the house, each fulfilling another function. This way, you will make your interior space much calmer and softer, inviting family and friends to enjoy a beautiful evening.
You can indirectly implement general lighting through different surfaces. Still, you should directly illuminate your home's highlighted details (such as lights above the dining table or a shaded lamp beside your sofa).
When it comes to your bedroom, look for enjoyable, calming, soft and pleasant lights. Do not look for stringently luminous lights- dimmable lights, color temperature changing lights, and table lamps with LED modules, represent a good choice for the bedroom. The textile lamps filter light in an incredibly soft and pleasant way so you could think of a light fixture with a textile shade for the bedroom.
Use cool color temperature lights for working areas- at your desk, in the kitchen where you prepare food, etc. Also, remember that not all the corners of your house need to be illuminated; instead, you should play around with lights and shadows to create a beautiful general atmosphere.
