If there’s one thing that’s critical to your home’s functionality, it’s lighting! There are so many different needs and tasks for light in a home, and you know how frustrating it can be if you don’t have enough light in a room, right?
I like to have a great lighting plan for every project I design, and this farmhouse that’s featured in the April issue of Traditional Home was no different! It has the perfect mix of decorative and task lighting, and I have four tips that will help you light up your rooms, too, so let’s take a look:
1. You always want to have overhead fixtures to flood a room with light when you need it, and there are gorgeous designs from vintage to modern that will help you do just that.
2. You can also use your lamps and light fixtures to add even more color to your spaces, while also providing the perfect amount of light.
3. Task lighting is critical in places where you work, like a kitchen, study, or playroom. And you can also use this type of light fixture to shine a spotlight on your gorgeous art!
4. Sconces give you a chic way to light up hallways and staircases, giving you a safe passage through darker areas.
