So, are you tired of making the same mistakes with lighting? We at Home Design Ideas Blog are going to share all our interior design secrets with you!
Today’s tips will help you stop making those mistakes you hate and recognize but don’t know how to leave behind. Let’s see the best lighting solutions:
Mixing Light Sources
Don´t be afraid of having several light sources. It’s better to mix chandeliers and floor lamps and have a well illuminated room than having only one light source and live in the darkness. Mixing light sources is the way to get warm interiors.
Here’s a thing about lighting: it can create different atmosphers, from drama to romance. But the easiest way to accomplish this is with a dimmer switch. Dimmers can reduce the voltage supplied to the lamp, which results in a light output decrease of the light bulb. With a dimmer you may set the light levels depending on your mood. Advantage? You will immediatly see a reduction in consumption and that will make you save money. Another pro is that it increases lamp life in order to replace lamps less times, so, automatically, you reduce maintenance costs. If you don’t know much about dimmer switches, just click here and you’ll will be an expert from now on.
Zero tolerance for too many fixtures in your ceiling: it will look like a swiss cheese! Suspension lighting can be functional in areas such as bathrooms and laundry rooms, but for living room design ideas you have other great options, like floor lamps and sconces.
