Achieving Better Lighting in your Home

Lighting is extremely important when we talk about the design and feel of a home. With well-chosen lighting you will not only save energy, but your entire home will get that perfect ambience in every single room. First, you should choose a lighting focal point. For example, select from the beautiful historically-inspired lights and opt for an amazing chandelier for your dining room. Make the chandelier the focal point of your dining room or your family room and you will certainly notice the difference. Then, you should opt for a beautiful floor lamp for a smaller room and dare to use wall sconces to highlight a painting on a wall. 

Then, you can balance everything beautifully by layering lights. When it comes to the perfect ambience of a space, layering of the lights is extremely important. Each space should have two to three different light sources so that they can be layered. Use accent layers in order to highlight your favorite piece of décor such as a beautiful vase, your favorite sofa or your reading corner. Besides saving on your electricity bills, dimmers will also help you achieve the right ambience every time. 

If you like to play with décor a little, you can also use a special lighting fixture in an unusual way. Choose from the amazing historically-inspired lights and add a personalized touch to a room. For example, add a historically inspired, even antique looking fixture to a modern room and everything will just pop. 

Also, don’t forget to choose energy efficient light bulbs for the fixtures that you are using most often in your home. Then, you do not have to worry that the lights are on for too many hours. Another way you can make an impact regarding lighting in your home is to replace your old ceiling fan with a newer model. Especially if you had your ceiling fan for too long, you have become bored with it. Plus, new models are made more stylish, interesting and modern, so you will definitely find something that you like. By making such a change you will entirely change the ambience and decor of your room.
