Home lighting the best way!

Lighting is a crucial factor in creating the desired ambiance and style for each room in your home. By skillfully balancing light and shade, complementing your chosen colour palette, and setting the appropriate tone for day and night activities, you can achieve a truly transformative effect. When selecting lighting options for your home, it is important to consider factors such as style, design, and direction of light flow in order to create the ideal atmosphere.

 

Plan

When redesigning or redecorating a space, it is important to plan out the lighting. Consider the areas where lighting will be most useful, such as task lighting in the kitchen or ceiling lights and table lamps in the bedroom. It is also important to think about creating a warm and cosy atmosphere and where brighter lights are needed for work and chores. Sketching out the space on paper can help with this planning process.

 

Choose the right bulbs for every occasion

When selecting light bulbs, it is important to consider the purpose of the space. For areas that require bright light, opt for bulbs with higher wattage. To create a cozy atmosphere, choose bulbs with lower temperatures. Halogen light bulbs are a good choice for mimicking natural daylight. For those looking to add a touch of style, decorative filament light bulbs can provide a vintage designer look at an affordable price.

 

Make sure you layer

Layered lighting is a technique used by interior designers to illuminate rooms. It involves using multiple sources of lighting at different levels to provide both functional and decorative light. In the living room, layered lighting creates a pleasant atmosphere during the day and night. This technique can be used to create a striking centrepiece, provide flattering glow in darker corners, and offer stylised task lighting.

 

Soften with a dimmer

Dimmer switches are a simple and energy-efficient solution for controlling the amount of light in any room. By adjusting the intensity of the light, you can easily switch from bright functional light to a more subdued and inviting atmosphere. This is especially useful when doing daily chores or when you want a more relaxed and calming ambiance. Additionally, dimmer switches provide clear and bright light on duller days, while also providing low-level luminosity for those nights when you want to unwind or entertain.
