Illuminate Your Home
Lighting is an important aspect of one’s overall décor. Choosing the right lighting, for the right room, will add to the atmosphere you are trying to create. When deciding what lighting to place in which room, here are the most vital pointers, in a design consultants eyes:
The Dining Room:
The most obvious room to place a well-lit crystal chandelier is over a dining table. This statement piece will not only add to the overall mood of the room, but it will help stimulate your guest’s appetite.
The Family Room:
A family room can benefit from a few different light sources. Table lamps, floor lamps, or a tasteful hanging light fixture can all be useful in a multipurpose room. Whether you want to read a book while someone else watches television, a number of different lighting spots can accommodate the whole family.
A couple that sleeps together stays together. While a nice chandelier can add a sensual feel to a bedroom, end table lamps can save a marriage. When striving to achieve harmony and compromise in the bedroom, lighting can be the answer. Placing a lamp on the night stand, on both sides of the bed, will allow couples to go about their pre-bed routine, without disturbing the other. While, a chandelier or hanging light fixture can disturb your partner, a stunning lamp and shade will illuminate just enough to satisfy both partners.
To create a harmonious flow throughout the kitchen different light fixtures can be used for different sections. While the cooking area may be brightly lit, a pendant light with a warm lamp shade will do the trick for a cozy breakfast table.
A child’s bedroom is many things to them; a place to sleep, a place to relax, a place of adventure and imagination. The right lighting can stimulate these different opportunities for your child. Warm soft lighting is best for sleep. If your child does not enjoy the dark, this lighting can be achieved using a wall sconce. A table lamp can create a place to relax and read. A colourful desk lamp can encourage your child to read a book and imagine the impossible. Finally, a decorative lighting fixture can be just the thing to take your children and their friends on a play date adventure.
