You use each room in your home for a different purpose, which means each room has additional lighting requirements. Some areas need functional, task-oriented lighting (kitchen or laundry), while others need ambient, indirect lighting (living rooms or bedrooms).
The type of fixtures, the intensity of light, and the lighting location should differ between each room. Confused? It’s okay; we can help. Here at Brass Décor, we love matching the perfect lighting fixtures to each room or area in your home and have a range of options available.
Read on to learn more about choosing the proper lighting for every room in your home.
Often the largest room in the house, the living room should be a warm, inviting space for you and your family. A well-lit living room typically has layered lighting that creates a pleasant atmosphere. Your living room lighting can include a mix of ambient, accent, and task lighting (think chandeliers, wall sconces, table lamps, floor lamps, recessed lighting).
As the heart of the home, kitchen lighting needs to be functional and flexible. The lighting should allow you to perform tasks during busy periods of the day and transform to ambient lighting when entertaining or relaxing at the end of the day.
Stylish, ambient lighting should make your bedroom feel cosy, calming, and safe. Try to avoid harsh overhead lighting fixtures, opting for lighting fittings that create a relaxing mood. If you have a dressing table in your room, classic, tasteful Hollywood lights around the mirror can make make-up application easier.
When it comes to bathroom lighting design, you need good task lighting for everyday grooming and ablutions but adding a dimmer switch allows you to create a relaxation zone if you want to soak in the bath.
Exterior lighting is as important as interior lighting. Exterior lighting is functional, allowing you to move around safely a night, but it also creates a relaxing atmosphere. The lighting and light fixtures you use outdoors should reflect the style of your home, so choose wisely. We have a range of exterior lights and light fittings available to choose from, all designed to complement your period or heritage home in Perth.
