5 Illuminating Ideas to Transform Your Space
BOLD CEILING FIXTURES
Beyond simply brightening an entire room, a visually striking ceiling fixture will also direct attention upward, thereby opening your space—not to mention add a bit of personal style, as well as a dash of drama to any room.
TO LAMPSHADE OR NOT TO LAMPSHADE
Lampshades are more than decorative accents—they determine the amount of light you get from your lamp. Lighter shades allow more light, while darker shades provide less, or more localized exposure. If your goal is to flood the room with light, you might consider glass, mesh, or even no-shade options.
WARM UP TO INCANDESCENT LIGHT
The lighting in your home should make your space feel inviting— and softer, yellow lights do just the trick. Not only are they more welcoming, they can also send signals to your body to relax, resulting in better sleep at night.
DON’T FORGET TASK LIGHTING
When choosing light fixtures, it’s important to not only think about the brightness in the room, but also to consider the areas in your home where you might need focused lighting for a task, like undercabinet lighting in the kitchen or lighting options for reading at a desk.
MIRROR, MIRROR ON THE WALL
Mirrors don’t just create the illusion of a larger room, they also help bounce light. Consider placing mirrors across from windows or other light sources to maximize what is already in place.
