How to Choose the Right Home Lighting | mhcworld.co.za

Home lighting can make all the difference in your space. In bedrooms, bathrooms, hallways, patios, living areas, kitchens, and dining rooms, lighting helps to create ambience and ensure that rooms are well-lit. The lighting you may use in a bedroom will be different from the lighting used in a kitchen. Kitchen lighting will be different from outdoor or passage lighting, too. To help you choose the right home lighting, we have put together some tips to keep in mind.


Choosing the Right Home Lighting


Some of the things you will need to consider when choosing home lighting include the following:


Type 


The main types of lights include overhead lights and free-standing lamps. There are other types as well, including fan lights, floodlights, lanterns, and various others. The type of lighting you choose will ultimately come down to your specific needs. For example, in an office that has a lot of natural light, you may find that a desk lamp will work well along with regular ceiling lights. In lounges and patios, you might choose ceiling fans that have lights to provide both light and air. In a bedroom, you may use softer lights as well as bedside lamps. 


Style 


Over and beyond the type of light you choose, you will also need to think about the style of the lights. If your home has a modern style, you can look for contemporary or simple lights that easily blend into your home’s style without looking out of place. For homes that have a more traditional style, you could try chandelier style lighting or other more classic styles. Finding the perfect light style will depend on your own personal taste. It should also depend on the current style of your house to get the benefit of both lighting and overall looks. 


Placement


Last, but not least, something very important to consider is placement. This is especially important for ceiling lights. You will need to place your lights carefully to get proper lighting. Areas such as kitchens and hallways may require brighter lights but not as many overhead lights. Larger areas such as open-plan living and dining areas do not need harsh lighting but will need more lights. Spotlights or more than one pendant or hanging lights with softer bulbs will be ideal for larger areas. Desk lamps can also be used to illuminate certain areas.
