3 Common Lighting Mistakes Homeowners Make

Jul 12, 2017

While interior design is a major concern for most homeowners, lighting design takes a back seat. Here are 3 main areas of lighting design that homeowners largely ignore or are unaware about.

Layers

1) Use lights in layers

If there is only one light source in the room, it can become a problem while addressing tasks. Inappropriate lighting can make the space dull or over bright. This can be controlled by focussing on mixing the lighting between Task, Ambient and Accent Lights. While accent lighting can accentuate décor elements in a space, task lighting will have more flexibility for task specific utility. Ambient lighting is necessary for all situations. However, a combination of the other two can change the way lighting is perceived in the otherwise darker areas of your home.

Big lights

2) Use your big lights, right

For spaces close to large windows, a task light should be sufficient to guide activity during the evenings and nights. If the shade of the lamp or chandelier is too big in proportion to its hanging area, it can seem out of place. Large dark lampshades should be used in bigger rooms. Whereas delicate smaller lampshades and chandeliers can be used in the living and dining areas.

 Dim lights

3) The Dim Switch

This is actually very helpful especially when you want to adjust the lighting of the room according to your mood. Since it may not be possible to have different coloured lights, adjusting the brightness on your regular system can easily change the look of your room. Ambient lighting can be connected to this system. This can also further connects to smart homes systems that can ease the process of dealing with it.
