Brighten Your World Using Interesting Lighting
Nearly any home can benefit from the use of creative lighting designs. You can use lighting to focus on a favourite decorating or architectural feature in a room, or you can just give it a warm glow. Consider these ideas to make lighting work for you in your home.
Dimmer switches are a great way to adjust the lighting in a room with little effort. If you just need a dim light for atmosphere, you can use it on the lowest setting. If you need brighter light to work, crank it up. Using dimmer switches is easy and even children will be able to control the lighting to their needs.
Use lamps at different levels around the room. It is typical to use lamps on coffee or end tables. Find high level surfaces and change the entire look of the room. These creative spaces will give the room a different glow. Bookshelves, entertainment cases or other high pieces of furniture are great places to install a lamp.
Blush-coloured light bulbs give the room a soft glow. For a cool, nice atmosphere without giving up the lighting you need, choose these bulbs.
Illuminate your fireplace or other focal point in a room with can lights. These can be faced in any direction to change the entire look of the room. Use the directional aspect to create a new look.
