      Lighting is one of the most important things in a home. I am very particular about it because it creates mood and it also helps you to see more clearly, especially in places like closets and pantries. 

     Layering your lighting is a great way to add character to your home. You can do this by using table lamps,  floor lamps, and sconces. Canister lights with dimmer switches are a great way to light up a home that is too dark.

     Chandeliers come in a series of sizes and shapes. They look great over dining room tables, hallways and stairways. You can find them in modern shapes or a traditional crystal.

 Above 2 examples of Recessed lighting in living/dining room areas.  To determine how far apart to space your recessed lights, divide the height of the ceiling by two. If a room has an 8-foot ceiling, you should space your recessed lights approximately 4 feet apart. If the ceiling is 10 feet, you'll want to put about 5 feet of space in between each fixture.

Some ideas for closet lighting include combining recessed lighting with motion sensor light rods to hang clothes.

  There are always ways to improve a home, and lighting can be an easy and inexpensive way to change the look, upgrade and make your living space more desirable and comfortable.
