THE FINESSE OF LIGHTING
Lighting can help to elevate your mood, make a room more intimate, make colors appear bolder, or simply help you to accomplish a task. It can visually differentiate individual spaces within a single room, or bring cohesiveness by generally illuminating a space.
There are different types of lighting (including sunshine), and using them in combination in your home will help you to create a warm, inviting and safe atmosphere.
The important thing to remember is to combine different sources of light within a space to provide an aesthetically pleasing, efficient, safe home.
