Not everyone understands the importance of good lighting in their house. You may still be using the same lighting arrangements as you purchased the home. Though they appear to work fine, they won’t be the best option for your house that fits in place with your new interior decor.

 Good lighting has a significant impact on the look and feel of a home. Here are some of the main reasons why good lighting is essential.

  1. Your mood can be determined by lighting. It can brighten a room by filling it with the needful amount of light, neither too bright nor too dull. It can also be attached to specific areas or aspects of the room, such as near a painting. Lighting can shift the attention of your guests in the room and highlight particular elements.
  2. In combination with color, light can help to open up a room. Bright and illuminated, the space feels much more significant. If light shines on a wall, the room appears much larger and more open. Colorful, powerful light can also help to make a dark room appear larger.
  3. Luminaires provide additional design aspects. Depending on the luminaires you buy, you can link the room together. Colors and metals can be matched to make everything look more uniform. Some lamps have a vital design element. This type of lighting serves both as a home decoration and as the lighting in a package.

Lights around the mirror in the bathroom

Lighting on both sides of the mirror is one of the best bathroom upgrades you can make. When choosing between a wall mount on the side of the mirror and an overhead mount in a tiny bathroom, the lighting designers advise using a wall mount. You don’t want to see shadows in the bathroom.

A central ceiling lamp and a lamp above the mirror are classic lighting concepts for older bathrooms. These luminaires would be replaced by three wall luminaires, two on either side of the mirror and one on the opposite wall, in a better lighting arrangement that differs from the mirror position.

Lights under the Kitchen cabinets

The kitchen requires careful consideration of work and ambient lighting due to its intense focus on food preparation and cleaning activities. Consider lighting for the counters, where most of the work is done, and above the sink.

One of the main reasons sinks are traditionally placed near a window is to use natural light, and lighting experts still recommend this configuration. Ceiling or recessed lighting above the sink can help complement the natural light. Lighting under the assembled kitchen cabinets is a beautiful way to illuminate countertops without relying on ceiling lighting.


To make each area unique, choose your lighting carefully and coordinate the lighting layers. No matter how much money you spend, your interior won’t work the way you want it to without a solid lighting strategy!
