Light this way...

Lighting is essential to good design.  Whether the source be natural or artificial, every room needs light.  I love rooms that receive an abundance of natural light. There's just something uplifting when you walk into spaces flooded with natural sunlight.  However, whether a space is "dark" or sunlight-filled, all rooms need general AND task lighting.  Lighting is essential to well-designed spaces.

Most rooms usually have some type of overhead lighting - a ceiling light fixture, recessed lights, track lighting, etc.  Some rooms only have task or spot lighting - sconces, pendants, floor lamps, table/desk lamps, under-cabinet lighting, etc.  But all rooms need a combination of BOTH.

Here's a peek into some "budget-friendly" lighting fixtures that are inspiring me right now.  Light this way...

Tips:  Put lights on dimmer switches for mood lighting.  Use wall-mounted adjustable sconces for reading/task lighting on your nightstand instead of traditional table lamps.  It's a space saver!  Use a directional task floor lamp in lieu of a desk lamp.  It'll give you more surface space to work!
