Upgrade your room with new lighting

If you feel like something is missing in a room, but you can’t quite put your finger on what it is, chances are you’re getting hung up on bad lighting. It might be that you’re missing an important accent lighting source that would bring out the color of the room. Maybe it’s lacking mood lighting to even out the sharp spotlights around the work area. Another common problem is the lack of multiple light sources to add variety and texture to otherwise bland central lighting.  

To help you improve the lighting in your home, we have everything from ceiling to floor lamps, as well as all of the in-betweens. 

A lamp here, a lamp there 

A properly lit room should have between five to seven light sources. And ideally, they should be a mix of different types of lights, positioned throughout the room at varied heights and. By combining floor lamps, table lamps and wall lamps, it'll be easier for you to create perfect lighting and help your room come to life.

Use height when deciding on indoor lighting

You want to make sure your lighting is positioned at varying heights. If not, your lamps might create an unflattering circle that directs all light towards the middle of the room. This can make the room feel smaller.  

Instead, you want to work with light at different levels. For example, you can have one or two table lamps in your window at mid-level, then a wall lamp placed in a higher position, together with a floor lamp that ends up somewhere in-between. That way, the light is more dynamic, making your room look bigger and more interesting.  

Indoor lamps need darkness to shine

While light is important, when it comes to choosing lamps for a room, shadows play an equally critical role. Your eyes need shadows and shades in order to perceive shapes and textures. Otherwise materials and objects risk looking a bit lifeless.  

To prevent this, make sure to work with different lightings and light sources. Play around with the angles of the light, dimmable lamps, and the height at which you place your lamps. Eventually, you’ll find the perfect mix of darkness and light.
