Decorative Lighting

Small-Kitchen-Floor-Plan-DesignLighting is an essential design element that can influence your home’s interior decor. You can experience a major transformative change in the overall style and ambiance of a room by making a few simple lighting changes that don’t cost a lot.

If you have artwork, decorative displays or other features you want to illustrate with clarity, the addition of spotlights is a great idea. You can shine a light on these special features in your home by installing a single, bright fixture with a focused beam overhead, or you can use track lighting to highlight larger features. In some cases, the design or layout of your room may be sufficient to allow lighting to be placed at eye-level or even below the fixture to shine upward on the area you want to illuminate.

Spotlighting can shine a focused beam of light or you can also use background lighting for ambiance. Consider how you can incorporate background lighting with under-cabinet kitchen lighting or dimmer recessed lighting placed behind a sofa or other features. Generally, these are light fixtures that don’t provide direct lighting and the light generally isn’t the main source of light in the room. It may even have a hint of color for a dramatic flair that further establishes ambiance.

Another idea is to use beautiful or decorative lamps in your room. These may be smaller desk lamps, floor lamps or table top lamps. There are lamps available in a wide range of colors, sizes and styles. The lighting from the lamps may influence ambiance and provide functional lighting, but the decorative nature of the lamps themselves can enhance the décor even when these lights are not turned on.

There are many different types of lighting that can influence your home’s décor and in many cases; it makes sense to incorporate each of these styles of lighting in a single room to enjoy different benefits. If you have a cell phone with a high pixel camera take several photos and upload them to your an online profile account to share them with local home lighting designer for ideas. They’ll be happy to study your rooms’ layouts and design to assist you about how some new light fixtures can influence decor and assist you in making some appropriate changes to enjoy better overall results for your space.
