10 Tips To Know About Accent Lighting




10 Tips To Know About Accent Lighting

Feb 18, 2016


Tip 1: Light only what you want to see. Through lighting, you have the ability to direct attention on the things you want people to notice in your home. Lighting can make an ugly room beautiful (and vice versa).



Tip 2: Add a world of color with lensing. Spread lenses will soften light arching on walls, drawing less attention to the light source and more on what you're trying to light.



Tip 3: Dimmers can brighten your life. The easiest way to control lighting is to have it on a dimmer. The dimmer gives the option of having lights all the way up or all the way down. It saves electricity and the life of the bulb.



Tip 4: Don't forget about lamps. If you're not comfortable with permanently changing the lighting in your home, you may want to try using lamps to light the space. There are many decorative choices with no installation required.



Tip 5: Filter out your scallops. Using lighting to draw attention to focal points of a room can really make the difference.



Tip 6: It's easy to track some lighting. The benefit of track lighting is that you have the ability to change the direction of its light. It's a very simple installation that someone with little electrical knowledge could perform.



Tip 7: Hidden sources are more appealing. Recessed lighting goes with any décor. The recessed fixture blends perfectly within the ceiling, and the homeowner doesn't have to go out and pick a fixture.



Tip 8: Good things come in small fixtures. Using a smaller fixture can help you save money on your electric bill. Engineers today have been able to harness a small power source and amplify it to have the intensity of a much brighter light.



Tip 9: Know the difference between fluorescent and incandescent. An incandescent light, the most common light bulb, can be found in the majority of homes across America. Fluorescent bulbs are commonly found in office spaces; they last longer and are more energy efficient than incandescent bulbs.



Tip 10: Less light can give you more room. Proper lighting is essential to creating the right mood. It can be brighter for task-oriented needs and dimmer for dining in the evening. Less light can actually add to a room's appeal. Proper lighting really brings a home all together in the end.
