Lit or Not Really?

Lighting your house the right way is everything. It is, indeed, the make-it or break-it ingredient for any interior and exterior design. With good lighting, you can easily switch from gloomy and unattractive, to warm and bright. If you see some room for ambiance and mood improvement in your house, here are some tips before you light it up:



It is important to consider ceiling height when selecting hanging light fixtures. There are lights that come with adjustable rods or cables, while some don’t. Avoid getting stuck with a light that hangs too high or too low. The bottom of a light should hang about 12 to 20 inches below a standard 8-foot ceiling. Add 3 inches for each additional foot of ceiling height.


Plan it out during the initial design phase of your house. Would you like three pendant lights over your dining table because one or two are simply not enough? Take your preferences into account before proceeding to construction.
