Room by Room Lighting Guide for a New Home

Posted By: Matthew

If you have just bought a new home then congratulations are in order. Indeed, you now have a place all of your own which you can mould into your very own ideal dream home!

Of course, you will surely be very keen to stamp your mark on your new place as soon as you move in. However, with the economy still being how it is, you may well find it hard to afford expensive new furniture pieces or pricey flooring solutions.

Fortunately, there is a quick, easy and affordable way to make your home your own

To be sure, the type of light you have in a room can make a huge difference to how it feels. So, if you want to make sure the rooms in your new home feel immediately welcoming and homely, you need to buy interior lighting solutions which will enable each of them to look and feel great.

The Living Room

This is the room where you will spend the majority of your leisure time; therefore the light solutions in it need to be functional and easy to use. However, there are several aspects which need to be considered with living room light, most notably the availability of natural light and the positioning of your sofas and television. Having a number of different light options can often be the best bet in this respect as blending a ceiling pendant or track lighting with some well placed floor-standing uplighters will ensure you have a decent selection of versatile light options.

The Kitchen

Kitchen light should always be utilitarian and task-oriented. Focused under-cupboard lights pointed down onto work surfaces and recessed ceiling spot lights can often be a good choice in kitchens as they can help to create a sharp, clean effect which compliments the role of a kitchen perfectly.

The Bathroom

The light in your bathroom should ideally offer a mix of effects depending on your mood and the layout of the room. For instance, bright, clean white light supplied by halogen spots can provide you with suitably strong illumination, whilst a single, focused shower downlight can be used to gently highlight your shower area. Another useful option for modern bathrooms is to have an exterior controlled dimmer switch as this will enable you to create a warm glow whenever you want to take a nice, relaxing bath.

The Bedroom

The bedroom is another room which requires a number of different light options. Bedside lamps are ideal solutions when it comes to chilling out or reading as they can provide you with the soft light needed to relax and unwind. Conversely, a bright pendant light or track light solution can provide you with the task light needed to get dressed and carry out personal grooming tasks.

Without doubt, investing in suitable light solutions for your rooms will help you to stamp your mark on your new home without damaging your credit card!
