Besides helping you to perform your job done easily, interior lighting in your home can also set up your mood. Different lighting design can create cozy feeling, dramatic look, highlight the artwork etc. You can start to consider what kind of activities & the mood you want to achieve before you plan the lighting design for your home interiors.
I have some example for the type of exterior and interior lighting that might be able to help you create your lighting design idea, for instance, the chandeliers. Chandeliers provide a focal point in the d├ęcor of your living room area and are functional as well.
Another type of interior lighting is vanity lighting. You have to be careful when placing the vanity lighting. Lighting above the mirror should be centered over the sink to prevent shadowing on your face. When mounting fixtures on either side of the mirror, mount them no further than 30 inches apart to avoid shadows and approximately 65-70 inches above the floor.
Outdoor lighting is able to enhance the character of your home. It also can help to create safety and security. Choose the correct size fixture for the scale of your home by visualizing how the fixture will appear from the street. If the fixture size is too small, the presence of your home will reduce. Choosing the right type of lighting fixture for your interior lighting is also important. For example, if you want a cozy feeling inside your bedroom, I suggest you to use the indirect lighting on your ceiling.
