Lighting fixtures fall among three categories and these are task lighting, general lighting and ambient or mood lighting. The first category, which is task lighting, is needed for areas that have certain activities going on. For example, a pin light that points directly below the space in front of the bathroom vanity unit. This is needed to help persons in doing their make up or shaving their beards. General lighting has a broader scope when it comes to function. It lights up hallways, living rooms, bedrooms and all the areas in the house but it deals more on the larger spaces rather than on one specific area. The last lighting category is ambient lighting. These are lighting fixtures that create the mood of an area. The living room has to have a livelier atmosphere during the day so brilliant light can be applied, but this brightness can be reduced into a warmer glow at night when the family gathers in the area and they want to have a calmer and more relaxing time. Dimmers can help minimize the glare of lighting fixtures so they should be installed with them especially in areas where the light should be regulated such as the bedroom, living room and dining room.
There are many ways to make a room look spacious and large. The first most important element is the room lighting. Go for soft and even lighting so that shadows don`t divide your room into smaller sections. Avoid putting ceiling lights as they make the ceiling look lower. By having a diffused and ambient lighting the room will look large. The next thing to keep in mind is the texture used in the room. Smooth surfaces tend to reflect more light as compared to heavy textured flooring. For interior decoration one can also use mirror and chrome as the reflection and shine give depth to a room. The wall colors of a room are also important in giving a spacious look to the room. Go for cream, beige, gray or cool pastels for walls. Also while selecting colors keep in mind that the ceiling should be in the lightest color in the room. The next thing comes the furniture. Place the furniture in a manner that it leaves adequate space to move around. Push the largest piece of furniture against the wall. Let the furniture color be similar to the wall and floor color of the room.
