Determine what your lighting goals are: Direct or task lighting is focused in the space you are trying to work. Ambient or indirect lighting is used for ambiance and for overall lighting of a space. Once chosen you can begin to choose lighting options. Each room in your home should have a mood you want to set, as well as a function you want your lighting to serve.
Seasonal lighting like Christmas lights look gorgeous around a headboard. Create the bedroom you’ve always wanted that will inspire and enlighten!
Measure the extension line of the distance from your ceiling down into the space you’d like to light. Take these measurements into consideration when ordering online or in lighting catalogs. Pendant lights are an affordable way to transform your space and beautifully light your home.
Mix and match color with dark finishes: Another option for achieving great lighting is to play off of adjacent colors to lighten up your dark colored interiors.
