Lighting is an
extremely important part of a home, but often
left to the last minute. People spend most of
their time in their homes. Good lighting can play
an important role in bringing a home to life,
as well as making it easier for the occupants
to engage in work or leisure activities.
When lighting up your home, you should take advantage
of natural light wherever possible. The key to
success with any lighting scheme is to ensure
it meets two criteria: it must give light where
it is needed, and the effect it creates should
enhance the room’s appearance by creating
a balanced mixture of light and shadow. Few homes
take advantage of the design possibilities that
good lighting can offer, preferring to rely on
the traditional centre point in each room. Choosing
fittings, in keeping with the style of the room,
will help to ensure that the lighting looks good
by day or night.

This can make or break a home. Lighting correctly
positioned makes a huge difference, and good lighting
can enhance the character of a home. For example,
a dark passage can make a house look small and
narrow. By increasing the light output the passage
looks bigger. Now the passage can be used to hang
pictures, or used as a photo gallery. The passage
has now become a feature part of the home.

One does not need a huge budget to light a home
correctly. The use of down lighters in a home

one the benefit of always having good lighting,
