Today we will help you choose wisely the right lighting options for the different rooms of your home because each one of it has its own necessities.
Here’s an old trick: light up three of the four corners, focusing one of those lights on an object (like a plant, a chair or a painting). Use a combination of table lamps and floor lamps, some with a downward glow and some that shine upward.
Your dining table needs to be the brightest spot in the room. Use a chandelier or a pendant above the table. Indirect lighting is the best for the remaining spots in the room. A small table lamp on a sideboard or matching sconces on the wall above are both perfect options.
If you spend a good part of your time in the kitchen you know that it’s importante to illuminate work surfaces. Use pendants, under-cabinet lights.
Ladies: from now on your best friend will be a pair of sconces. There’s no best way to apply makeup that having a couple sidelights. An overhead light helps fill in any shadows on your face and also fully illuminates the room (perfect for cleaning time). If you have a big bathroom, you might also want a light directly over the shower.
A home office requires a good deal of light for reading documents and writing. If you are the kind of person who spend a lot of time in your office, you should have a table lamp or a floor lamp right beside your writing desk.
