Every room in your house should have something in common; spectacular lighting! In living rooms, bedrooms, dining rooms, and kitchens, you should have three types of lighting:General Lighting: This is the general light that highlights the size and use of the room at hand. Pot-lights, ceiling fixtures or even chandeliers may serve in this purpose. Always have your general lighting on a dimmer switch so you may control the ambience, then your dining room table can serve as a craft table or to set the stage for a truly romantic evening.Task Lighting: This type of lighting refers to reading lamps, stair marker lights, under-cabinet lighting, and basically anything that will help you see better for performing a particular task.
