Its Time To Light It Up!

Lighting has a significant impact on home decor as it can change the mood, atmosphere, and look of a room. The right lighting can enhance colors, textures, and patterns in furniture and accessories, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. On the other hand, poor lighting can make a room look dull, washed out, and unappealing. The key to successful lighting in home decor is to use a combination of different lighting sources

First Find The Function Of The Room

The function of a room should be considered when choosing lighting for that space. Different rooms have different needs and purposes, and the lighting should reflect this. Here are some examples of lighting considerations based on the function of the room:


Living room

This is typically a multi-functional space where people gather, relax, and entertain. A combination of overhead lighting, task lighting, and accent lighting is ideal to create a warm and inviting atmosphere.

Bedroom

This is a place for rest and relaxation, so soft, warm lighting is important. A combination of overhead lighting and bedside lamps is ideal, with the option of dimming the lights for a more peaceful environment.

This can include task lighting for reading or getting dressed, ambient lighting for a relaxed atmosphere, and accent lighting for decorative purposes.

Home office

This is a workspace that requires good task lighting for tasks such as reading, writing, and using the computer. A combination of overhead lighting and task lighting is ideal.

Home office lighting refers to the type of lighting used in a workspace located within a home. Good home office lighting should provide adequate illumination to reduce eye strain and improve visibility while working.

Games Room / Home Bar / Man Cave

Lights for these rooms are whatever you desire them to be but the ones you are looking for to spice the room up come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colours and are often used to create a playful or whimsical atmosphere. Examples of novelty lighting include text lights, animal lights & many more to create that cool unique atmospheric experience.
