Light Up a Room - Tips for Lighting Each Room in Your Home

Posted by Tod L on

Lighting done right can completely change a room and how you feel when you walk into it. Each room, depending on its use and its layout, can best benefit from different types of lighting. Below are some suggestions for the best ways to light each room in your home.

Living Room
      The living room is one of the rooms that allows for more liberal design. With the right light choice, the normal living room is able to present a totally different atmosphere. Recessed lighting is a great option that will illuminate the entirety of a living room. A floor lamp is a simple way to flood the whole room with light as well. To create a warmer and brighter ambiance, try adding sconces or table lamps in addition to your floor lamp. This is a room that can also greatly benefit from the addition of accent lights such as art lights. Track lights can highlight unique items in your home and create an elegant atmosphere.

Dining Room
      Chandeliers are classic when it comes to dining room lighting. Pendant lights are an alternative similar in effect but more simplistic in design. They are a great choice if you're aiming for a clean, modern aesthetic.

Patio
     Wall sconces are a decorative way to light a patio or a backyard.

Kitchen
      Recessed lighting is perfect for kitchens as they take up no space and leave plenty of room to move around and to store goods. Pendant lights and ceiling lights are another great choice that stays out of the way while providing stylish lighting.

Bedroom
       Like most rooms, bedrooms can benefit from a floor lamp that lights the whole room. This is a particularly suitable option since bedrooms are usually not too large and therefore easy to fill with light. A wall sconce or a table lamp next to a bed or on a desk is great task lighting for activities like reading or working.

Bathroom
      Wall sconces are a great choice for vanity lighting next to a bathroom mirror.

Hallways and Stairways
      Hallways and stairways are narrow spaces. As such, they are best lit with fixtures that take up the least space, such as wall sconces and ceiling lights.
