VARY LIGHTING TO SUIT THE ROOM’S PURPOSE AND MOOD – YOU’LL MAKE IT FEEL BRIGHTER AND BIGGER
When renovating or updating your space, pay special attention to your lighting needs. Careful planning and consideration has to be given to lighting because it has the ability to transform your space, making your area feel brighter and bigger.
Don’t only plan with function in mind – the right lights will also make a stylish addition to your home.
Consider your area carefully. Is the room naturally dark? Or does it have a lot of natural light? These kinds of questions, as well as the size and colour of your room, should indicate your needs.
If you’re updating multiple rooms at a time, each of your rooms should have its own lighting plan.
Here’s my guide to some of lighting types you’ll need, and how they can help you: 1. Ambient lighting will give an even, overall light to a room. If you can, adding dimmers will let you adjust the light depending on the time of day or the mood you’re trying to create.
2. Task lighting has function at the forefront, illuminating the spaces you need to be lit well. Think kitchens, a study or the bathroom vanity.
3. Finally, accent lighting lets you show off key pieces of furniture or design elements in your home. If you want to highlight your artwork or stylish dining table, accent lighting is the right option.
