Good lighting in your house can make a huge difference in the look and feel of your home. Bright lights can make you feel more awake, while dimmer lights can make a room feel cozy and relaxing. Where you place lights is also important. We are going to give you some tips and tricks to help you get the perfect home lighting.

Home Lighting Tips and Tricks

  • Layers – Layering lights add depth, interest, and ambience. We recommend having layers of lighting in every room. This can be accomplished with pendant lights, track lighting and recessed lighting. Pendant lighting will give height to a room, and clusters of lighting will help to make a large room feel cozier.
  • Task specific – When selecting your home lighting you need to think about what specific tasks you will be doing in each room. In a kitchen you will want to have more concentrated lighting to help you cook better. We recommend bright down lights and recessed lighting underneath cabinets and your stove. Rooms for reading, makeup and movie watching will all have different lighting needs.
  • Spotlights – Use your lighting to highlight special art, architecture and features of your home.
  • Lighting plan – One of the most important tips we can give you is to have a lighting plan. Think about what activities will be done in each room, any key features you would like to highlight, and what style you are aiming for. Having a good lighting plan will help you to achieve your home lighting goals.
