The importance of good lighting
I’ve learned never to underestimate the importance of good lighting in a room! Well thought out lighting will set the tone and provide focal points within a room.
Good lighting can literally transform a room from good to great.
Poorly planned lighting, on the other hand, can detract from the time and effort you’ve put into your space. Many details of your lovely furnishings and carefully curated artwork will be lost with poor lighting.
Obviously being able to see things is always useful when it’s dark. But lighting is also one of the main elements that creates good ambiance in a room.
Types of lighting
Every room needs a good combination of general overhead lighting, task lighting and accent lighting to set a mood and provide sufficient illumination.
Dark corners can pretty much always benefit from a lamp. They also help add an extra layer of interest to a space.
- Floor lamps can add vertical interest to a room. They are also great for filling in an empty corner next to a couch or armchair.
- Table lamps are great for showcasing a pretty vignette you’ve created.
- String lights are super cute and whimsical and look magical basically everywhere.
And don’t get me started on smart lighting systems that change color and you control with your phone! I am obsessed with those! But that’s a topic for another day…
This collection of budget floor lamps focuses on a clean and sleek minimal style. But the design choices out there are endless when it comes to floor lamps.
