Light fixtures in and around your house not only keep your house well-lit, they also add character and style to it. The right lighting fixtures can also increase the functionality of the indoor space and the curb appeal of the outdoors. With a bit of creativity, you can enhance the overall appeal of your house by using some indoor and outdoor lighting fixtures.
Use Light in layers to Increase the Aesthetic Appeal of the Interior
If you want to make your room or lounge more attractive while simultaneously increasing the utility of light fixtures, then use them in layers and levels. For instance, you can setup the lighting fixture in your room and lounge with ambient lighting, task-lighting and decorative-lighting. All of these ‘layers’ serve different purposes and add more depth to the overall experience. Here’s how:
Ambient or general lighting fixtures illuminate the whole space where they are fitted. Different ceiling fixtures and chandeliers are used for providing the space with general illumination and therefore every house are fitted with ambient lighting fixtures.
Task lighting fixtures are the one from where you can start to add layers with your lighting fixtures. They are those lighting fixtures that are installed to perform everyday tasks like pendants hanging on the kitchen counter or the side lamp in your bedroom that is used for reading books.
This is the final layer of the lighting that can you add with the help of decorative accent lighting fixtures. They are used to highlight the features of the decoration and interior that you may have in your indoor space. Wall sconces, small chandeliers can be used to highlight any work of art that is present inside your house.
When illuminated at the same time, these light fixtures make your indoor look wonderful.
If you are looking to add appeal to the exterior of your house, then light fixtures can be very help in increasing it.
Decorate the Entrance of your House
If you want to make the walkway to your front door look attractive and illuminative, then you can use the bollard lights on the borders of the both sides of the walkway. You can also adorn your front door with some suitable lighting fixture as well. Make sure to use some metal housing to protect them and to add design and style. You can get various designs or even order a customized one in stainless steel, copper and iron. You can also hang wall lanterns on the wall beside the front door.
Add Character to Your House’s Outdoor Space
You can also beautify your backyard, patio or garden with different lighting fixtures. You can find various attractive outdoor chandeliers that are used to illuminate the outdoors. String lighting can also be used to border your outdoor space. Choosing better furnished strings can provide the exterior of your house with a starry look at nights.
To maintain the look of your house through lighting fixtures, make sure that bulbs are always fully glowing and make sure that the lighting fixtures that are fitted outside your house don’t get dusty.
