How do I choose the right lighting for my home?

Homify Logo By Sunita Vellapally of Homify | Slide 1 of 10: A common mistake that many homeowners make is to focus on using lighting to add beauty to the space. As a result, the lighting might prove inefficient for performing simple tasks. Therefore, it’s vital to focus primarily on people when designing the lighting for a space as this will help to decide the functions that lighting will provide. For example, in a bedroom, creating a beautiful false ceiling with recessed lighting will make the room look stylish, but it won’t provide sufficient direct lighting when you want to read at bedtime. Once the desired efficiency is achieved, you can incorporate lighting to highlight the architecture or art in a room.
