Many people worry about how their accent lamps will look on their end table next to their brand new sectional. Many people worry about the area rug. Many people also worry about their window coverings, accent pillows, and so on. It seems that sometimes people forget to look up as well. Your ceiling light covers can make a world of a difference in your home, when done correctly. Each room needs different lighting to achieve its perfect balance, and often times the best way to achieve light nirvana is through overhead lights. Ceiling lights provide you with what you need without taking up any floor or table space that is often desperately needed. You can follow a couple basic steps to make sure you choose the right lighting for your home.
The first step is to determine what rooms need a lighting makeover. You are going to need to light your kitchen differently than your bedroom. Let’s start at the front of the house: Your foyer will need welcoming lighting that also creates an impression with your guests. This can be achieved by choosing a ceiling light cover that is considered a bit statelier. Perhaps a more sculpted cover or a chandelier. Whatever type of cover you choose, it is important to make sure that it fits its space appropriately. More often than not, people choose something that is too big and overpowering for a smaller area, like the entryway. When lighting your kitchen is it beneficial to remember that it is normally one of the busiest rooms in the household. It is generally where people gather and is considered to be the heart of the home. In the kitchen it is also important to make sure you have the appropriate amount of light to illuminate your culinary explorations, so don’t be afraid of putting more than one type of light fixture in this room. Utilize under the cabinet lighting to avoid shadows on the counters and pendant lighting over an island.
Next you will need to determine the overall feeling you want to attain in each particular room. In your living room you want dynamic lighting to go with whatever is happening. Recessed lighting is popular in living rooms because it is out of the way and is usually able to dim, so it can change throughout the day. Some people prefer more of a statement ceiling light cover than just a hole, so they will go with a bigger lighting piece than the recessed lights. But, don’t forget to make sure your fixture is appropriate for the size of the room. The living room is also the room that you will likely need to use the most accent lighting because it is often a large room. Just like ceiling light covers that are needed in every home, most people forget all about their bathroom lighting. In most cases only one light is used in this room, but the bathroom, like the kitchen, should be well lit. Using a light diffuser for your ceiling light covers will help evenly spread the light all around the room. It’s also a good idea to light your mirrors properly because people love to get a good look at themselves.
Lighting can make or break a room. It can help you create a friendly, warm, welcoming environment; or lighting could be lacking and make your home feel more like a haunted house instead. But, before you worry about those accent lamps, don’t forget to look up and create your initial lighting impact with some statement ceiling light covers. Just because it’s above eye level doesn’t mean it’s not as important.
