Also, there was a nice fireplace and mahogany mantel where art work was displayed. I exchanged a floodlight with a spotlight and improved the focus. Suddenly the art became a special design element in the room and well worth looking at.
Chandeliers or Pendant Lights: A well selected chandelier suspended from the ceiling over the center of the dining room table can lend grace and sophistication to your dining room. Care should be taken to see that the size of the chandelier does not dwarf the size of the room or the dining furniture and vice versa as well. It should also be suspended in a way that it is the ideal distance from the ceiling and also from the surface of the dining room table so that the lighting is optimally focused. Whereas with a chandelier you would necessarily use just one piece in a room, with pendant lighting you can use one or more matched pieces or pieces of a set which may be of graded sizes or color coordinated.
Built In Accent, including accent lights into built in shelving is a great way to highlight special objects and accessories. In this room from Juliette Byrne the eye is immediately drawn to the lit up shelves, making for a bright and beautiful focal wall.
Before settling on one type of kitchen lighting scheme over another, take some elements of your kitchen into account, like size, shape, décor color, cabinet placement and color, ceiling height and placement of appliances. These facts will help you decide what the most important areas and appliances to illuminate are, where the more dimly lit areas likely to emerge from, and how negatively color will affect how the lighting is perceived when a person enters the room. Then, you should also take your personal preferences for the room into account. Do you like everything brightly lit when you are cooking or cleaning? Or do you prefer a kitchen with an ambiance that you could dine in if you wanted to? These preferences demand different lighting options.
