Stylish Ways to Light up Your Home This Winter
When it comes to the look and atmosphere of a home lighting this winter, it makes a dramatic difference. Most people have the ordinary lighting – lamps, overhead lights, etc. Did you know that the lighting in your home can completely change the feel and mood? A warm and cosy ambience can be achieved without changing any of your décors. Certain types of lighting add not only to the look of your home but serve different purposes as well.
Light Up Your Living Area
What type of the lighting do you have in your living or family room? Most likely, you have a few lamps, overhead lights and maybe a ceiling fan with lights. Lamps can be gorgeous and are always a part of the home decorating scheme. Selected correctly they can enhance the beauty of any room.
Do you have any areas of your living room that deserve special attention? Trophies, plants, or beautiful antique collectables can become the focal point of the room by adding small spotlights. Simply place them on a surface surrounding the area. You may want to consider overhead lights that are equipped to dim so that you can set a romantic mood occasionally.
Other Areas That Deserve Special Lighting
Your kitchen is most likely the room where everyone gathers; company, family, close friends all love to congregate around the dining table for tea and coffee, to visit and to enjoy each other’s company. The kitchen should be brightly lit, since you do a good deal of cooking and clean up in this room.
In the dining room, consider placing small decorative lamps on a side buffet, and also install a dimmer switch so that you can change the lighting. You never know when you may want to create a romantic dinner just for the two of you! Dim the lights and light a few candles to generate the atmosphere you desire.
The bedroom is another area where you want several lighting sources. You need good overhead lighting so that you can see inside drawers, closets, etc. If you read before turning in for the night, you will want a lamp on your bedside table. This is one room where you may want a very small candle lamp that creates an amber glow, perfect for those chilly winter nights when you want to cuddle up with your significant other!
What about the Bathroom?
In the bathroom, you want a source of bright light. Men shave in this room, and many women apply makeup in here, so you must be able to see clearly. Set a few candles along, and consider a dimmer in this room as well – especially if you have a large garden tub. Nothing is more relaxing than soaking in an oversized tub while delicate lighting helps float away from the stresses of the day. The scent of the candles will help ease away the anxiety as well, and add a luscious fragrance to the room.
