We are sure that you sometimes in your life have entered into a room with weak light. On the contrary, when lighting is impeccable you haven’t noticed it. When the lights are on their right place everyone looks their best, relaxed and comfortable, embedded in the ambience.

Fixtures and bulbs are the option to create an inviting environment, but be careful: do not overly bright lighting, or your guests will run away from your home with headaches. “You don’t want guests in your home to feel like they’re waiting in a hospital emergency room,” says interior designer Andrew Galuppi.

Localize your light source

A common misconception is that you need to light the whole room. Try instead to incorporate multiple points of light. The best lighting in a room is when different spots of light mix together well. Also, picking the right lampshade can make all the difference.

Always add a dimmer

For multipurpose rooms, dimmers are essential. “They allow for flexibility depending on the time of day, event, or mood, and they’re a great energy saver,” says Rockwell, who recommends a licensed electrician for any electrical work. Dimmers reduce energy consumption and increase bulb life. She believes every overhead light should be wired for a dimmer. Be aware that just one point of light in a room it means that you are going to look at your shadow all day long, it is depressing on itself!

Know your bulbs

Fluorescent tubes should be avoided at all costs. It gives a strange sensation in a room, everything looks off. Compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) on the contrary are a great option, but you need to be careful disposing of them.

Screw-in LEDs have a long life, but can be pricey. Adelman prefers the dimmable white A-19 LED light bulb from “It’s good for any incandescent replacement, and I love the warmth and the shape.”

Great bulb option for your living room

Consider the function 

You have to know the goal of that space you are decorating because it is different if you want to light up a kitchen, tv room or if you want to do some homework there. The light should be totally different depending on what you are going to do in that space.
In the dining room, an overhead chandelier with a dimmer works best. If you’re using track lighting, be sure not to shine the light directly on the faces of guests around your table. Kitchen lighting is more complex. Pinpoint your work areas and light them directly. In living rooms, use a combination of floor lamps, table lamps, and down-lights (recessed or track lighting). “Here the lighting should be part of the decor,” says Galuppi. Bathrooms are trickier. Some say to go the clinical route—the brighter the better—especially at the vanity. But others prefer a softer glow from dimmable wall sconces.
