What Are Light Fixtures? | Interior Design


So one of my favorite aspects of the home
is the jewelry. When I say jewelry, I mean literally the light
fixtures. Because light fixtures for a home are like
jewelry on a woman, and so you can go really sleek and modern, or you can go really jeweled
and sparkly. I like a little bit sparkly, I’m not going
to lie to you. But I would say that lighting is really important,
why? Because the different layers affect how you
live. So you have your basic task lighting and that
makes sure you can do things like read magazines, do your work, maybe cook. Those are lights that are specifically directed
to the tasks that you’re doing and that can be achieved through table lamps, floor lamps,
recess lighting. Then you have your ambient lighting and that’s
lights, basically to make you feel good in your space, to add general lighting throughout
the space. So lamps can also work towards that. You can also do floor lighting that kind of
lights the space up. And you can also do recess lighting, that’s
also affected by that, as well. So you have your task. You have your ambient lighting. Your general lighting, which pretty much crosses
both a little bit. You just want to make sure that you don’t
have very big, dark, black spots in your home, where you can’t see where you’re going, or
also the tasks that you’re doing. Other than that, have fun with it. Your light fixture can say a lot about your
personality. So if you love a really funky lamp in your
bedroom, fantastic. Maybe that chandelier that you love in the
store would be really beautiful in your dining room and adds that color and maybe that focus
that you want. Just make sure that it’s also functional. Functionality comes first, beauty comes second.
