One of the biggest and most important elements in designing a home is Lighting.
Many people neglect the lighting elements and just stay with what there is. This is a mistake. Adding light to a room is most important. How can you brighten a dark room? Light has a very big impact on the overall design.
Lighting fixtures come in a wide variety of styles for various functions. Nearly any material can be used, so long as it can tolerate the excess heat and is in keeping with safety codes. Some designers use simulation lighting for projects before they are built or renovated. This enables architects, lighting designers, and engineers to determine whether a proposed lighting setup will deliver the amount of light intended. Based on the positions and mounting heights of the fixtures, and their photometric characteristics, the proposed lighting layout can be checked for uniformity and quantity of illumination.
There are many ways and many areas you can add light to a room. Some are traditional and some are less traditional. I like to add light in less traditional areas.
When you designing a room never forget you need to think also about the lighting.
