Careful lighting design gives dimension and texture, revealing the articulacy of your home décor. Creating the proper lighting setup lies in finding the correct spacing, fixtures and functions for each room. Every lighting technique brings you closer to customization and works together to establish a healthy balance between posh and practicality.</p> <h3>Toe Kick Lighting</h3> <p>Consider adding toe kick lighting under the counters of your kitchen or bathroom to balance light between the ceiling and floor. It’s subtle yet useful, and provides an extra cushion of safety. Toe kick lighting arrangements also bring depth to unlikely spaces.</p> <h3>Layer your Lights</h3> <p>Don’t neglect the nooks and crannies of your home; light them up. Take advantage of layering through the use of key, task and accent lighting. Key lighting will provide basic light function overhead. If used alone, it will provide flat, uninteresting light.</p> <h3>Reading Lamps</h3> <p>Reading lamps are the perfect approach to task lighting and can be placed on your bedside table or next to your favorite lounge chair. And, accent lighting gives the finishing touch. It highlights details that slip under the radar if left in the dark. Add accent lights to illuminate intricate artwork, plants, cabinet silhouettes and wall textures.</p> <h3>Dimmer Switch</h3> <p>If every light in your home turns on with a simple flip of the switch, it’s time to update. It’s hard to manipulate the mood of each room if its source is one-dimensional. Take your lighting choreography to the next level, and let a dimmer switch set the tone. It will add complexity, and put you in control of light intensity. Dimmer switches also save energy, which help lower utility costs in your home. There’s no need to search the ins and outs of home decorating stores to revamp your home this season. Finding new ways to light up the atmosphere saves you and your wallet from the woes of redecorating.<br /><br /><a href=""></a></p> </div></div></div><div class="field field-name-node-link field-type-ds field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><a href="/blog/bright-ideas-to-upgrade-to-modern-lighting" class="">Read more</a></div></div></div> Mon, 31 Mar 2014 16:58:01 +0000 Super User 4292 at
