Lighting Is The Key To Creating A Perfect Room

Often times we assume that as long as the art, furniture, and layout of a room is well thought out, than our rooms will be glamorous. That assumption is only half true. Lighting is the key to creating a perfect room. Beautiful furniture alone will not save your room. Buy a great chandelier or a fabulous lamp. I for one hate recessed lighting and fluorescent bulbs. Not only does recessed lighting and fluorescent bulbs strain your eyes, but they also make you look and feel tired. Lighting contributes to the overall success of a room. Be bold when buying lighting for your home. Don’t just choose some chandelier or some lamp. If your buying a lamp, mix up the shades. Buy an orange lamp shade on a lamp with a white base, or buy a turquoise lamp shade for a lamp that has a gold base. The biggest injustice you can commit when buying lighting is following trends and not taking risks. Every light you place in your home must be meticulously thought out. When using overhead lighting such as a chandelier or pendant be sure to add a dimmer. Dimmers create different moods depending on the time of day, plus they are a great energy saver. Each light should speak for itself, but work collectively. You can add as little or as much lighting to your home as you want. Don’t follow rules, just do.
