Light Therapy – Bright Ideas to Illuminate your Space
Light is integral in uplifting a room’s ambience and transforms it into a cohesive combination of design, functionality and style. Lighting can make or break the ambience of a room. The choice of lighting and its placements warrants thoughtful considerations such as the functions of a particular space.
When choosing lighting fixtures, consider these three tips:
TIP 1: Ambient or General Lighting provides light throughout a room. Think overhead lights like chandeliers and ceiling fixtures.
TIP 2: Task Lighting adds extra light to areas where chores and activities get done such as reading a book in bed, chopping foods in the kitchen and applying makeup.
TIP 3: Accent or Decorative Lighting adds interest to the décor or architecture such as drop ceilings, in built lighting within cabinetry designs and focus lighting over a picture.
