Lighting up your room is not a decision that you really have a choice on, you have to light up your room or house right? Lighting is important in easing visibility in your room especially at night when there is no natural light. During construction you should ensure that the positioning of the rooms is such that during the day, the natural light lights up your rooms wholly. This is a good saving technique of electricity bills. Sunshine is beneficial for you and not just for lighting.
Natural light is so perfect it brings out the color scheme in your house so brightly. The shine creates good reflections and a well lit room appears amazing and welcoming. The freshness and appeal brought by sunshine on colors is such that we would just wish to have the sun shining the whole time. However this is not possible and that is why several designers have come up with great creative ideas to try bringing out the beauty of your colors using light, while still serving the sole purpose of light which is visibility.
Initially, we just had the standard bulb like the fluorescent bulbs for lighting purpose. This left more people with no choice since this kind of lighting does not have any decorative purpose in the house. This is the reason you should get designer lighting to add more color and style in your house.
Lamps now come in variety of colors and styles. We have table lamps, desk lamps and floor lamps among others. Table lamps are especially interesting because you can be a bit playful with them. Deigns range from modern classic styles to the vintage type in appearance and model. One of the new kids on the block are when it comes to designer lighting are replicalights.com.au who have some incredible designer replicas on sale. One of our favourite being the Foscarini Caboche Pendant Light You can pick a table lamp that matches your cutlery during special occasions for that complete look. You could also have some dimmed light for it to enhance intimacy during special dinners like a dinner with a loved one. Your home office does not have to be boring. A cute little desk lamp can spice the room up a little. Even when you are having too much work and you do not feel like going to that office, let the lamp be the motivation and the force that will push you to get in there.
There are also wall lamps that come in beautiful designs. Imagine a wall lamp that is shaped like the face of your favorite pet or animal. This lamp can be a great masterpiece for your living room. In fact it saves you money that you could have used to buy a wall hanging. It is like killing two birds with one stone: you get the like and you decorate the wall at the same time.
Ceiling bulbs come in variety of sizes and colors. not to mention the exotic designs.they range from chandeliers that add style to your living room to the pendants that hang on beautifully from your roof. There is a large variety to choose from. Some ceiling lamps are culturally designed and you can use them to communicate about your roots instead of always telling people where you come from. How cool is it to have light that speaks for you and keeps reminding you of your culture? It can be a good starting point to your children about your background. Talking of children, you could get a ball-shaped bulb for their room. And it can be in varying colors too. If anything, children really like color and will get so excited about their room having a different color from say the kitchen. You could also opt for a more modern and classy chandelier to back up your high price leather seats. Style goes with style.
The designer lighting also vary in the color of light they emit and can therefore be customized to suit the room or occasion. You can have bluish light by your swimming pool area to create that aura and oceanic view by your poolside. That is quite relaxing. In a place like the kitchen you need a little bright light which does not cast shadows based on the activities that you get to do in the kitchen. Having fluorescent kind of light but with a more interestingly looking bulb is a plus for you. The bedroom could have a bit of dim light, probably with a reddish hue. This is inviting and you do not have to switch off the light when you sleep. If you have a bedside lamp the better because you don’t have to walk in darkness after switching it off.
Convenience is another thing brought by selecting appropriate lighting. Lamps, for their portability are very convenient as you can shift them depending on the use or simply to break the monotony of having it at a central place. Most of these lights do not consume a lot of power so that is an advantage for you. It means you pay less for electricity and save much more which you can use on other items like household shopping.
Another good thing about designer lighting is that their placement is not fixed. You can be creative as to where or how the lights are placed e.g. the wall lamps. You can move about the floor and table lamps. Surface mounted light are especially flexible as to where and how to place depending on the side the light is facing.
We tend to freak at the mention of word designer. Most of us associate it with expensive merchandise. But I can tell you that not every designer light is expensive. The cost depends highly on: the type of design, the type of light, quality of course and even the store you buy it from. You can get good deals online and even at your nearest store. There is always something worth the price you are willing to pay and if it is slightly high then you just bargain.
Remember if you take good care of that light, however heavy the investment, you could hand it down to family or friends.
