5 Ways To Light Up Your Home

One of the most neglected areas in homes is lighting. If not done correctly it can truly leave you in the dark.  Lighting changes the look of a room dramatically, making it warm and comfortable with the flip of a switch. So many times lighting is overlooked. Are you guilty of having one light fixture in your room? The more you vary the lighting, the better.

  Here are my 5 top ways to light up your home…

 1. Lighting needs to be part of your plan when decorating so that you have the right amount and the right kind of light. Look at what kind of tasks you are doing in the room before deciding on what is needed.  Task Lighting is crucial for function.

 2. Using spots, tracks and under cabinet lights are best for the overall light in room and to highlight artwork or features on walls.

3. Create drama like using a chandelier could actually become the focal point or conversational piece in the room.

4. Don’t forget to consider looking at the finishes to see if they affect the overall scheme of the room.

5. And finally my favorite – just add a lamp in pairs or single make a statement
