How can you choose the right lighting for your home?
Beautiful lighting can undoubtedly add the finishing touch to any interior. From kitchens and living rooms to bathrooms and hallways, carefully selected lighting can complement a design and harmonise a room. Creating the mood you desire should be as easy as flicking the switch.
To create the feel you desire in your interior, lighting needs to be thoroughly thought through, putting a lighting plan together before you start to decorate a room will help you to minimise any mistakes. Make a note of the features, artwork and furniture you would like to highlight and plan your lighting accordingly. Dark spaces especially will need extra attention. Always remember to use layers of light at different angles for maximum impact.”
How you can use lighting to highlight features in your interior?
It is amazing how easily you can highlight key features of a room with simple subtle lighting. Use down lights on pieces of furniture, wall art or kitchen islands to put a spotlight on those key features. A simple table lamp with a luxurious lamp shade can be used to highlight a nice coffee or side table.
Up lighting can be used on architectural features within a property. If your ceilings are a feature, then uplights will highlight this whilst bouncing light back around the room to give a subtle soft light. Backlights work well behind items like a coloured glass vase, to give the room a glow of colour.
