May 21, 2010, Newsletter Issue #202: Selecting Lighting

Tip of the Week

When you're moving into a new home or redecorating a room in your home, lighting is something that you will need to look into. Do you want some great lighting advice? It's important to take the following things into consideration: What kind of mood do you want to create? What different activities will go on in that room? What decorations or areas do you want to draw attention to?

Once you figure out what you are trying to achieve in your room, it will be easier to select fixtures. It is a good idea to have between five and ten lighting sources in a room. If you're dealing with a multi-functional room it's a good idea to only use the lights you need at that moment or perhaps to install a dimmer switch so that you can control the amount of light that each lighting fixture emits.
