Lighting is for important in setting the mood of your home. Moreover, it is important for its practical use. Think about your home and if it has all the lighting qualities you would like. If your answer is no, here are some tips on how to choose the perfect lighting for you and your family.
Determine your lighting goals. Each room in your home should have a mood you want to set. Choose from available lighting options depending on your goals. Don’t forgo utility for the sake of style.
Think about safety and security. Walkways, sidewalks, perimeter of your house, and the front entry should be lit with ambient lighting. Otherwise, your outdoors will be a nesting place of burglars.
Use multiple light sources for one space. For the kitchen, bedrooms, and living spaces, multiple light sources will help you achieve a variety of functions and activities in that space. In the kitchen, under counter lights can provide great task lighting. While in the living room, opt for a floor lamp next to a couch or favorite reading chair. In bathrooms the lighting at the mirror should be free from shadows and glaring light.
