Lighting is one of the most important features for creating the right ambience in each room of your home. Take your living room for example – specialty lighting is key in your living room as it needs to be able to adjust for many different scenarios to create the perfect atmosphere. On weeknights your living room might be used for homework, reading or board games, but on weekends it’s used for cozy movie marathons.
To create the perfect light in each room of your home, for each possible scenario, is not always an easy feat. Understanding your different lighting options you have to choose from can be complicated, so our Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric expert electricians are here to help.
Here we’ll discuss specialty lighting ideas for your home so that you can find inspiration to find the right lighting features and fixtures for every room in your home.
Your living room lighting should generally include three types of lighting to suit every mood: accent, task and overhead (or ambient).
An innovative way to combine both style and functionality for your living room lighting is to install a chandelier for your overhead lighting. A chandelier is the perfect way to make your home appear timeless and warm, while providing enough functional light. They can be tricky to install so it’s always important to have a professional fit it for you. Consider adding a dimmer switch to the chandelier fixture so that you can control the mood at any time.
Combining the overhead lighting of a chandelier with a few floor and table lamps can soften your living room feel, while giving you the perfect light control for those cozy evenings, without leaving you in complete darkness. A floor lamp can also be great if you want to leave one light on overnight for safety and security reasons, without using too much energy.
Proper lighting is key for your kitchen as it’s where you spend the majority of your family mealtime. It’s crucial to find the right fixtures that can serve as both task and overhead lighting.
Consider a combination of recessed ceiling cans with fluorescent bulbs and LED cabinet lights for a soft glow that makes your kids feel at home and will also make sure you never miss a crumb while cleaning the kitchen countertops. Fluorescent bulbs are energy efficient and last a lot longer than incandescent bulbs. Having an electrician install a dimmer or timer switch is a great way to control the light in your kitchen and ensuring your home is more energy efficient.
Whether you’re doing your makeup in the morning or trying to relax in the bathtub after a long day, bathroom lighting is key to setting your mood.
If applying your makeup or shaving before work is part of your daily routine, then consider installing vanity lighting that gets rid of any dark shadows. There’s nothing worse than getting halfway out the door when you catch a glimpse of your face and it doesn’t look right!
Your bathroom should also be a sanctuary in your home where you can relax and enjoy a sense of peace. Consider updating your bathroom lighting with recessed lighting or a chandelier with a dimmer switch can help diffuse some low light and set the mood for your bubble bath.
Your bedroom is where you start and end your day and should be the part of your home that is truly all about your own needs. Why not spoil yourself with automatic lighting controls that are adjusted to your preferences for every occasion!
