Traditionally, spring is the time when many of us think about redecorating a room in our home and we begin skimming through glossy magazines, searching the internet or visiting showrooms for home lighting ideas.

Even if you had the time, energy and resources to purchase exactly the same products somehow they never seem to look the same in your own home.

How do you choose the correct lighting for your home? Are you going to be ambitious and create different levels of lighting that can be adjusted to reflect the mood and atmosphere you want to create or are you going to just replace the lampshade in the center of the ceiling, add vanity lighting, accent lighting to highlight artwork or kitchen track light lighting?

There are three basic types of light:

General lighting or ambient light – A semi flush, flush mount, chandelier or a pendant light fixture in the center of the room typically provides this type of lighting and it provides a good level of brightness for everyday use.

Feature or accent lighting – Wall sconces are great to create highlights and can be used to focus on particular architectural features you have in your home, such as fireplaces or alcoves.

Task lighting – which as its name suggests, is specifically designed to provide strong localized light for specific tasks, such as cooking, reading and close work. Pendant lights are a favorite for this type lighting.

Living Room Lighting – General lighting for a living room normally includes ceiling fixtures or chandeliers, wall sconces, table and floor lamps.

Bedroom Lighting – Ceiling lights and bedside table lamps are necessary, while wall sconces are a lovely addition.

Bathroom Lighting – Proper bathroom lighting is a necessity, you must include vanity lights, flush mounts or mini chandeliers.

Dining Room Lighting – Typically you will find chandeliers or pendant lighting with dimmer switches, to help set the mood you are striving for.
