• Give enough attention to lighting your home

  • Good or bad lighting can just about transform the complete look and feel of your home. While you may have spent a fortune on buying the most contemporary living room furniture, all your money spent can be less than adequately reflected if the lighting is not correct. Good lighting focuses on being functional and elegant at the same time. Bedroom: This room deserves the right mix of functionality and a chic look. You are going to spend your nights here, and need adequately bright lights to do your work. Fluorescent lights are great in terms of whiteness of the light and energy efficiency, thus keeping your subsequent electricity bills low as well. CFLs are an option that are smart and come in a large variety of designs to suit every need. The lighting needs to complement your bedroom furniture. Keep a night lamp on the bedside tables for night time reading. Have a focus light just above your dressing mirror, to light up your face well while dressing. Living room: The first thing to see is the size of your living room. Is it large sized and has vast open spaces, or does it have just about adequate space to place your leather recliners with little to spare? In the former case, you should best go for soft lighting to enhance the areas you want to accentuate. Have a special painting or artifact you recently purchased? Place it where it draws the maximum attention and enhance it greatly by a focus light. Keep the rest of the lighting around these specific points or articles comparatively dim, so as not to take the attention away. While you are at it, pop into any furniture store to get some good ideas see the way they display their wares. If your house has limited space, and your living room just about adequate to seat a few people, no sweat still. Bright lighting is what the doctor prescribed for your room, and will make your room look larger than it is. A light focused on the ceiling would give it a higher and larger look. Combine the corner lamp with a stand to showcase some of the collection you made during your last holiday to the beach just make sure you limit your display to reasonable sized pieces that do not look outlandish in the small space reserved for them. The Attic: The attic would generally be filled with stuff that you do not normally require. Yet you do not feel like throwing it away as you feel you may need it sometime. It is for these moments that you need adequate bright lights in the attic. You need not spend money on fancy lights here need the place to be functionally bright enough. If you have converted the attic to a children study, or the art studio you always wanted to explore your talent with, there would be specific lighting requirements for each. You may choose bright colored lamp shades in case of a children room. Keep a switch close to the platform beds for the children to use the lights without much discomfort. Your requirements for a hobby room would be more simple, but functional, and would fit the exact need for the specific hobby be it painting, or carpentry. The lighting should facilitate the functional requirements, and must complement your furniture.
