Lighting can transform a room and set the mood of the space. Lighting offers an inexpensive way to enhance any home décor, but knowing which type of lighting is best for each room is important. Lighting options include recessed lighting, track lighting, sconces and pendant lights.
Hanging fixtures over a kitchen island or breakfast bar creates ambient light in a family gathering place where guests may read or help with homework or cooking after dinner. Track lighting above a dining table adds light on diners as they eat, perfect if the fixture also has a dimmer switch for candlelight dinners at night. A living room with multiple seating areas benefits from several hanging sconces placed on the walls around the room. A bedroom with recessed lighting or ceiling fan can provide overhead light while a pendant on either side of a bed adds ambient light.
