4 Common Residential Lighting Mistakes

Lighting plays an important role just like the color scheme and interior design style of your home. Often, people miss on the key features of lighting which make the house look either too bright or too dark. So, here we have rounded up a few essential elements of lighting design to help you illuminate your space perfectly!

LET THE NATURAL LIGHT IN
Sunlight is a crucial element of brightening the space. Many people install dark blinds and blackout curtains that darken the vibe of the room. While it is important to have thick curtains to regulate the inflow of light, don’t carve out space by permanently closing the windows. In addition, these architectural openings also filter the air and keep the house healthy. 

LAYER THE LIGHT FIXTURES
Layering the light not only makes the room look more aesthetically pleasing but also affects the functionality. Using only one type of light makes the interior look bland and two-dimensional. So, always install a good mixture of ambient, task, and accent lights to achieve a well-illuminated space. 

CREATE VIRTUAL ZONES THROUGH LIGHT 
If you have a house with higher ceilings, the best way to brighten up the space is by installing lights at varying heights. Use the rule of thirds and install semi-flush ceiling lights, pendant fixtures, and floor lamps. This will ensure that every area is lit properly. 

 

DON'T MISS ON THE TASK LIGHTS 

Many households have exceptional ambient lights that give an illusion of a perfectly illuminated space. But slowly, you will realize how difficult it is to carry out mundane tasks. Therefore, it is always advised to use task lights, especially in areas like the kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom.

Make sure you follow these simple points to make your home look more functional and beautiful. Make sure to have fun selecting the right lighting for your space.
