Lighting is one of the easiest ways to refresh the look of the interior of your home. Depending on the type of lights used and their placing, you can dramatically change the feel of any space. Functionality of the room will also determine the way you should illuminate it. Bedroom and kitchen, for example, are not going to need the same lights. The size of the space also play an important role because lights can make small spaces look bigger and vice versa.
- Layering light is important in a living room, so use task and accent lighting to support ambient lighting.
- In the kitchen, sufficient task lighting and natural light are necessary at the sink and countertops.
- A bedroom may utilize only floor and table lamps, though wall-mounted fixtures are also an option.
