Creating the mood is what lighting’s second duty is. It first illuminates and then makes you have an experience. Look through interior design magazines and seek inspiration for how you want your room to feel.
Pendant lighting is used in areas of your home that you need direct task lighting, or you need a drop down ambient light from a higher ceiling. Depending on your task and the decorative look you’re trying to achieve, pendant lighting can be perfect for your home.
Side table lamps are perfect when they are in bed reading or winding down from the day. Consider night lights and soft glow wall sconces for little ones that are afraid of the dark. For decorative touches match bedding, décor and lamp shades together for a pulled together yet functional look.
Use exterior wall sconces for décor: Outdoor lighting doesn’t have to only be utilitarian. Wall sconces can provide washes of light against the exterior walls of your home to create ambiance in the evening hours.
