Lighting affects how we see colors and textures and is an important factor in how we physically feel in a room. Light fixtures can also be a primary focal point in a room. Sierra Verde Home Design Center carries many styles of lighting from top brands, including Currey & Co., Hubbardton Forge, Hammerton Lighting, and Visual Comfort. We’d love to help you create an ideal lighting atmosphere in every space of your home.
You may think of lighting as a single-faceted component in design, but good lighting is essential to good design. We urge you to remember that the ceiling isn’t required to be the primary, or only, source of light in a room. It’s almost important to create layers of light using the four types of lighting:
Now that you know about the different types of lighting, let’s talk about the various fixtures you can use to create the perfect amount of light in any room.
It’s much easier to create a welcoming environment if you know how to place lighting in different areas of your home. When it comes to lights, always think of quality over quantity. Too many sources of light in a room can make uncomfortable bright spots and make your guests feel as though they’re being interrogated instead of entertained.
When in doubt, we suggest going with a larger lighting fixture. Small fixtures can look like a hastily placed afterthought, especially in larger rooms or those with tall ceilings. However, you also need to keep the visual weight of the lighting in mind. A large, dark-colored fixture may look better on a smaller scale than a light-colored, airy fixture. We carry lighting including selections from Currey & Co., Hubbardton Forge, Hammerton Lighting, and Visual Comfort. Choose your favorites!
