Lighting Your Home
Lighting can really bring a room to life. No matter how beautiful your art or how plush your furniture is, if it isn’t lit properly, it’s going to look lack luster. When lighting a room, the experts follow TADA: Task, Accent, Decorative, Ambient.
Task: First and foremost, a room needs to be lit according to the main function of the room. Your kitchen and living room, etc, require different lighting elements to make the room functional.
Accent: Consider any special features or potential hazards that need to be accented in a room.
Decorative: Using lighting fixtures as part of the overall design fits in the decorative category. For example, chandeliers or wall sconces.
Ambient: Finish lighting you room with any additional touches of light where you feel your room is lacking.
If you aren’t sure where to start, consider bringing in a professional to assess the space.
