Your home is a beautiful place of relaxation, a refuge from the outside world. If you don’t know by know, you should understand that it behooves you to craft the most gorgeous family home you can. Why? Surely you deserve to choose to have your house as you want, even if that includes mess? Well, yes. But it doesn’t mean that you wouldn’t be intrinsically happier with a home that is well designed and helps express your personality exactly how you like.
Our surroundings contribute to who we are as people more than you might think. A bright, airy and open living space will help you feel like all three of those qualities as a person. A cluttered room makes for a cluttered mind as they say, so if your home space is cramped, dark and uninviting, it’s likely you’ll feel that way too.
Remember, actual space doesn’t really matter in this instance. You can have a tiny house or flat to raise your small family in, and it doesn’t matter. What matters is how you utilize the space. But how do you do so effectively? What contributes the most to a living area that is welcoming?
We’d argue - Lighting.
Lighting allows you to direct exposure to areas in the room you most like, while also downplaying its negatives. Here are a few ways beautiful home lighting can contribute to your atmosphere.
The ambiance and mood you want to set in your home is greatly dictated by the lighting system you use, and where you angle it. Depending on how strong, tonal and exposing your light is, it will either help or hinder the colors of your wall and furniture. Too bright lighting can make a home look overly minimalist and offensive, while too dim can make it look dismal. The room ambiance contributes a lot to your mood, so be sure to consider what theme you’re going for before you implement it.
Your styling choices are as important to the home space as the light that comes from it. You have a range of choices of implement for your home lighting - from installing lighting systems that are obvious and apparent, to those fixtures that fit with the color of the room and otherwise completely high themselves, you should identify how apparent your lighting setup is in your ideal room, and go for that.
Lighting needn’t be a question of how dim or bright a room can seem. Different tones, colors, and diffused effects can add a range of different moods to your home at different times. If you really want to get jazzy, consider installing a lighting implement that allows you to change what colors are shown at what times of day. This can vastly improve your comfort within that space. For example, a light purple at night can give a mellow feeling over the entire room when lighting an incense candle and practice yoga in your living space. Consider your utility, and let the lighting work for you rather than against you.
These lighting considerations can make any home look gorgeous, but only if you find the lighting fixture you most love. Good luck in your search!
