Let there be light!
Lighting design encompasses everything from the right style of lighting, light placement and the type of globes used. Do the job right and you can highlight design features, brighten gloomy spaces, and create an appealing and inviting home that you and your family will enjoy.
Choosing the right fitting and globe for each room in your home is easy to achieve by taking a few basics into consideration.
Central lights on the ceiling normally provide the majority of the lighting in a room, as it’s the most effective way to light up the space.
Pendant lights are ideal for illuminating kitchen islands and dining tables and can be selected to complement the style of the room.
Install downlights with dimmers in a living area so you can soften the light to create a cosy atmosphere.
Areas of high activity like the kitchen and bathroom or a work area like a study require lighting to illuminate the task at hand.
Spotlights or downlights are ideal for a kitchen, as they prevent shadows over the work area when they are installed en masse.
Use LED strip lights under cabinets in kitchens, surround a bathroom mirror with lights and add desk lamps in a study.
