Tips for a Well-Lit Home

Lighting can make or break the appeal of your home and good lighting can do wonders for your favorite spaces. Here are some tips to make your home shine beautifully.

LAYER YOUR LIGHT

One secret to beautiful lighting design is to mix four different types of light. The first layer is ambient lighting - indirect light the evenly makes the room glow including overheard light and natural light. Next comes task lightning - spotlights including reading lamps and undercover lights. Then you'll want to highlight the room's architecture with accent lights and track lights. Finally, decorative layers like chandeliers and lamps.

ADD DRAMA

Use accent lights to highlight features in rooms that you'd like to draw focus like a painting or fireplace. Uplighting rather than downlighting can be a beautiful way to feature things like a wood-beam ceiling.

INSTALL DIMMERS

Dimmer switches can save energy but also allows you to tone down too bright ambient lighting and create softer tones in your lighting schemes.
