You are visiting a friend that has just had a beautiful kitchen remodel done. It is a lovely kitchen with stunning granite countertops and a sharp-looking tile backsplash. The glass door cabinets are filled with the good china. Somehow after spending a small fortune the room still looks a bit drab.
So many times people spend a wad of money renovating a room and neglect to take the lighting into consideration. Properly placed lighting of the correct type can literally make or break a room. That tile backsplash can be brought to life with some low voltage linear lighting. The china in those glass door cabinets can really show itself off with some puck lights and glass shelves.
Recessed lighting and a combination of switching options can give a room many personalities to suit any mood. From bright light for working conditions to subtle lighting for a romantic setting can all be accomplished with switches and dimmers. Accent lighting to highlight certain aspects of a project that were carefully planned but would barely be noticed otherwise. Cove lighting above crown moldings helps focus attention on the detail of the room.
In a bathroom lighting is very important and many times overlooked. Placing recessed lights above can cause grief if a supplemental light is not placed on the wall near the vanity. When shaving or applying makeup those overhead lights cause unwanted shadows. By placing an additional light such as a wall sconce can eliminate that problem.
When you carefully plan that next renovation project or new home be sure the lighting is well planned out as well.
Hello, digital friends! My name is Tomas and I’m living in the UK. I like traveling, that’s why I work remotely from home. That’s a great way to travel around the world and discover new things and at the same time to earn money productively.
I am a content writer, dog and book lover. So you can guess – yes, I have a dog. We travel by my own car in Europe. But if I have to go abroad like Japan, for example, I let my parents take care of my Aron (my French bully). I always have a laptop, a mouse and a wireless keyboard with me because I like observing the situation and if I find something interesting, I start writing a story.
I have studied interior design for 2 years. That’s why my inspiration often is home improvement and remodeling. So here you find both: inspiration for your house or apartment and innovative ideas. Take an eye and share on your social media accounts if you find it helpful.
