How To Choose Lighting For Your Home

 

Choosing the right lighting is one of the most important decisions you will make for your home. It will either make or break a space. Seen as lighting is one of our specialities we thought we would share a few handy tips to get you on track.

Ambient Lighting
Ambient lighting is also known as general lighting is one of the most important types of lighting in an interior. The aim is to provide an even distribution of light throughout a space. Ambient lighting needs to be strong, durable and provide comfort within the space.
Best spaces for ambient lighting:
Hallway
Living
Dining Room
Bedroom

Chandeliers & Pendants
This crosses over with ambient lighting and works well if you have high ceilings. They are great for creating a focal point in a space and work well as a feature. You can also try a cluster of pendants to make a large chandelier.
Best spaces for chandeliers & Pendants:
Hallway
Stairwell
Over a kitchen breakfast bar
Dining Room

Task Lighting
As it says task lighting is for "tasks", it has been designed to stimulate the brain whilst you work, sometimes working as a replacement for natural light where none is available. It's the go-to lighting of choice for applying makeup or in an office setting.
Best spaces for task lighting:
Office
Dressing Table
