Here are four great tips about lighting your rooms from the experts.
Three layers of light matter—in every space, including the powder room or foyer. Reduce wattage and size to accommodate fewer square feet, but don’t ignore the accent layer, which helps to highlight the extra details you’ve used to finish your rooms.
Lighting shouldn’t overpower a room—but it shouldn’t get lost in a room either. For example, the length plus the width of any room should generally equal about the diameter of a chandelier in inches.
Not all fixtures—chandelier, lamps, sconces—should be the same size; otherwise the eye searches for visual clarity. Your lighting focal point can be a chandelier, but in a smaller-scale room, think about a distinctive floor lamp or vintage-inspired sconces flanking a piece of wall art.
Dimmers—in all of the rooms, and with as many fixtures as possible. Use dimmers to change the mood and balance artificial light with natural light.
