Whether you’re building or remodeling a home, one thing to consider is interior lighting. Many homes come with standard lighting packages, but if you’re wanting a more custom look for each space, you should consider all your options. To help you, here’s a guide for interior lighting throughout your home.
- Kitchen – For the kitchen, you’ll want some sort of ambient lighting. In addition, you’ll want to illuminate your counter space and kitchen sink if possible, consider using lower task lighting to make these spaces pop. Your kitchen is the heart of the home and where many people gather, so it’s important to have it lighted properly.
- Living Room – In a living room it’s common to have an overhead light and/or fan. These lights are typically simple but effective. In addition, we recommend adding an accent light to your space that could highlight a specific piece of furniture or art piece.
- Bedroom – Bedrooms typically have standard overhead ambient lighting. However, consider task lighting above each nightstand to provide efficient and convenient lighting. Additionally, consider having light focus on dressing areas and away from the bed.
- Bathroom – Bathroom lighting can be difficult to design because you want to avoid shadows. Consider using ambient lighting overhead while implementing task lighting around the mirror to illuminate the entire space of the bathroom.
We hope these interior lighting tips will guide you in your lighting decisions in the future.
