Decorating for the Artistic Soul

Archive for June 10th, 2009

Lighting needs have to take into consideration the function of a room.  While soft, intimate lighting my be appropriate in a small dining room, or a bedroom, you certainly do not want it in your kitchen, bathroom, or office.  So let’s go one room at a time and figure out what you will need:

  • Kitchen- A ceiling fixture that lights the whole room is a must.  You also need task lighting over your kitchen sink and in your major work area.  If your table is in the kitchen, a dropped fixture over the table is appropriate.  Use a dimmer switch on that fixture so that you can regulate the mood. Track lighting that can be aimed at a butcher block island or a breakfast bar is useful.
  • Bathroom-  Recessed lighting in an enclosed shower stall is a must.  Over the sinks use strip lighting or fixtures mounted on either side of a framed mirror over each sink.  If you have a jacuzzi tub, a ceiling fixture on a dimmer switch can promote romance or give you enough light to read a book.
  • Dining room-  Unless the room is cavernous, a chandelier on a dimmer is all you need.
  • Family room- A ceiling fixture for those dark and gloomy days, or to provide all over light for your party is a must, but don’t forget the task lighting!  If there is a game table, it must have its own fixture.  Easy chairs should have a floor or table lamp next to them for reading or any close work.
  • Bedrooms don’t require a ceiling fixture, though a ceiling fan/light combo is always nice.  Night stand lighting, or a floor lamp by a chair is required.
  • Formal living room-  No ceiling fixture is necessary here.  Track lighting that can be aimed at furniture groupings or important wall hangings, a few table or floor lamps and you are all set.
