Decorate your home With good Lighting


Recent Company News

Since last year's intermittent nation-wide power cuts, South Africans have been reminded of just how wonderful an invention electricity is and that it cannot be taken for granted. During these times, those who chose to read a book by candlelight while the power was off would have discovered just how challenging this can be visually, and what a fire hazard it can be too!

With the return of a steady power supply, we should all be looking at how to arrange the lighting in our homes to be efficient and effective in order to bring out the best in our homes aesthetically as well as in terms of practicality.  The quality of the lighting in a home should match the quality of the decor and furniture. Below are some pointers on how to use lighting in your home effectively.

Home Lighting: An Essential In Home Decor
By:  Pamela Tice

Many people spare no expense when it comes to filling their home with expensive furnishings, draperies, carpeting and artwork. They know that creating a comfortable, stylish home is an effort to be truly proud of and take their job seriously no matter whether they are decorating the interior or exterior spaces of their home. Sadly, though, all of their hard work often goes unnoticed or unappreciated by most if they fail to pay attention to the most important element of home décor: home lighting.

Choosing the proper home lighting is perhaps one of the most important facets of decorating your home and creating an atmosphere of warmth and comfort. With the right home lighting you can make a poorly decorated room look extravagant and make large, cold spaces seem warm and cozy. There is just no end to what you can accomplish with the proper home lighting. That is why it is so important to invest in good quality lamps for your home’s interior spaces.

When decorating a room it takes several different types of home lighting to truly complete the look. In the ideal room, general home lighting, task home lighting and accent home lighting work in harmony to create an overall effect that is comfortable and engaging. For these reasons, serious thought needs to be given to the home home lighting design process, especially when it comes to lamps, which are usually classified as task home lighting. While lamps can be decorative and add an element of style to the room, they also need to be practical and able to handle the majority of your home lighting issues.

There are numerous different types of quality lamps that you can purchase for your home. Which ones you choose will depend largely on your existing décor, home lighting needs and the overall home lighting affect you wish to create. The types of lamps include floor lamps, table lamps, desk lamps and buffet lamps.

In addition to considering which types of lamps to incorporate into your décor, you should also consider and compare manufacturers according to quality, style and price. Two premier lamp manufacturers that you might wish to consider are Uttermost and Feiss. Each of these top-name manufacturers deliver decorative lamps of superior quality and style. In their inventory you can find lamps to compliment any décor no matter whether it is Formal, Country, Contemporary or Eclectic.

After deciding which lamps are suited to your particular tastes, budget and existing décor, you should carefully consider the placement of your lamps and which types of lamps to include in your interior spaces. Choose lamps that work with your lifestyle and the way you live in your home. For example: use desk lamps for delicate tasks such as a hobby and table lamps for more general tasks such as reading and place them where you are most likely to engage in these activities.

Do not make the same mistake that many do and underestimate the importance of purchasing quality lamps and home lighting fixtures for your home’s interior. You will see that it is only after all of your home’s design elements come together, that a truly beautiful and comfortable home is created.

Many a beautifully decorated home is ruined by poor lighting, from fittings or styles that don't match around the house, to insufficient lighting which leaves dark corners. If you are proud of the home that you have put together, make sure to light it properly so that you and your guests can see the fruits of your labour.
