Follow these expert tips to choose and use the right lighting for your home!
We’ve come a long way since the basic bulb. Lighting is such an important and integral part to any design but it’s often neglected. So before you start anything, ask yourself two questions: what do you want to light and how do you want to light it?
These days, lighting options are limitless and with so much choice at hand you don’t necessarily have to have what everyone else is having:
1. A light is so much more than just a light, it’s evocative, it can tell a story, it can either increase or decrease your productivity depending on the task at hand. It sets a tone in any interior and is often the driving force behind an overall concept.
2. Don’t downgrade lighting when designing your home - it can mean the difference between a good room and a really great one.
3. Consider allocating more of your design budget to a custom and unique lighting solution. A well-lit interior can not only help with an overall mood but evoke a sense of warmth and comfort within. Many companies these days concentrate solely on lighting, employing local craftsmen and designers to create entirely individual pieces. Consider speaking to a designer to have your lighting built from scratch.
Think beyond the functional down light and go for that special, unique light instead. You won’t regret it.
