For Smaller Rooms
When looking at how to light a room, it's often best to start with the size of your room. Lighting solutions for a small room will need a completely different approach compared to a larger room. Light evokes warmth, comfortable state of mind, and adversely it can create a stark intense atmosphere. Getting the balance right is crucial.

A top tip from our Home Design Team is, to always consider the function of the room. What will the space be used for: Cooking? Watching television? Doing homework? In the dining room, an overhead chandelier with a dimmer works best.
If you’re using track lighting, be sure not to shine the light directly into the faces of guests around your table. Kitchen lighting is more complex.
Pinpoint your work areas and light them directly. “Ideally, lights should be below your eye level,” says interior designer Andrew Galuppi.” Set up task lights under the stove range or cabinets to light countertops.”
In living rooms, use a combination of floor lamps, table lamps, and down-lights (recessed or track lighting). “Here the lighting should be part of the decor,” says Galuppi. Bathrooms are trickier.
Some say to go the clinical route—the brighter the better—especially at the vanity. But others prefer a softer glow from dimmable sconces.
Compromise and incorporate both with the addition of candles. “Candlelight helps you unwind while you soak in the bath,” says Galuppi. Master bedrooms should feature good reading lights at the bed and desk, and a task light for getting dressed. Any overhead lighting should be fit with a dimmer.
