There’s something about light, whether it is natural or not, that brings life into any room. The lighting in your home becomes extra special when you put thought into its design, position, and even intensity. Area lamps are ideal for creating a unique ambiance in the spaces of your custom-built home. The best part is that no two rooms have to look the same. In fact, the lighting you choose can transform any room into a space that matches the mood you want to create there.

Having said that, remember that there’s always a starting point in any journey. The first step involves design. The following post describes how you can design the lighting of your home:

Lighting options are available in a variety of budgets, from traditional to contemporary styles. Fixtures crafted in metals, glass, crystals, bamboo, and fiber, come in different sizes and shapes. Floor lamps, wall scones, ceiling lamps, spot and pendant lights, chandeliers and light strips, can also be used in a home’s décor.

“Nowadays, people are very choosy when it comes to selecting lighting elements for their home’s interiors, as well as exterior areas, such as gardens, verandas, pathways, staircase, balconies or even the main door. Customers today, have amazing choices, vis-à-vis colours, tones, brightness levels and energy- saving options,” shares Sudhir Pawar, a Pune-based interior designer. Read more at Housing…
