Interior lighting serves many purposes in each room.
That is, when you want to create a dramatic welcome to your home, a set of pendant chandeliers must grace your entryway.
But, when you have a workspace in your home, you need some recessed lighting coupled with some desk lamps at areas shared with family.
Yet, how do you blend in these functional units into your home decor theme?
Here are a few lighting design ideas to incorporate into your home.
The Living Room
Your living room is where you and your family spend the most time together.
Hence, create an ambiance that will suit multiple occasions.
For example, install a chandelier lighting above your seating space.
Pick layered chandeliers that will transform your dull ceiling into a piece of art.
This way, it will define the living room’s focal point.
Alternatively, if your living room doubles up as the reading, guest, and recreational area, then use appropriate lighting for each section.
Is your kitchen small? Use ample ceiling lighting to create an island effect.
Put sufficient LED lights behind your cupboards that will brighten the gloomy pockets.
Next, your cutlery can create an unwanted glare from your lighting.
Avoid this by using anti-glare, energy-efficient lights for your drawers and cabinets.
The Dining Room
Did you know that you can pull off an expensive dining room effect using paper pendants?
Yes, and if the paper isn’t your thing, consider the English street lanterns instead.
These easy to mount lighting will create a relaxed atmosphere for dinner.
Still, if you want your dining area to have a vintage theme, go for nautical pendant lights.

The bedroom should have a relaxing appeal. Hence, use upward-facing wall sconces for your reading sections.
It makes your private study time more enjoyable.
Include recessed lighting options that let you control the light intensity when you wake up or go to sleep.

Your bathroom is a functional area for the family.
