Another tip is to set your bedroom up with remote lighting. There is nothing more annoying than having to get up out of bed after you are all tucked in because you can't reach the light switch. By choosing an interior light system such as modern wall lights which can be operated by remote control you will be able to turn on and off, dim and change colour of your lighting with just one finger. Alternatively you may fancy trying a 'clapper' or other device that allows you to change you lighting with ease.
The family area may be somewhere fun, sophisticated or old-fashioned style. Focus on what you want to use the area for, what time of day you are most likely to use it, if there will be lots of people or just a few. This is all important before you buy furniture or make any drastic changes. If it is a large area, you may be considering outdoor flood lighting. It is a very effective way to light a big space. Usually this area will need to be durable and easy to use it may be the area that gets used the most.
Accent Lighting - As its name suggests, accent lighting is used to accent (or highlight) features of interest and should be brighter than any ambient illumination. In a lot of spaces, it is used to add drama to a room, which, in turn, adds a sense of increased appeal. Wall lights used as accent lighting are commonly fitted with dark or opaque shades, as this forces the light to spread out from above and below the fixture, creating an attractive hourglass shape and dramatic shadows. Wall lights are commonly used to draw the eye to artworks, plants and even architectural elements.
Your final decision on what style of wall lighting to choose should be a combination of 2 to 3 of the elements you have written down in your notes. Your wall lighting should be constructed with some of the elements of the furniture in the room. This could be wood, metal, glass, plastic and fabric (Some wall lighting has lamp shades).
You can have these wall light fixtures installed over your reading desk, by the bed side or over the kitchen table. This means that you can place then in areas where you need light for a specific job only. or for illuminating a specific part of the house. I find it a good idea to combine the use of various wall light fixtures with fluorescent bulbs and low voltage lights since they are energy saving and environment friendly.
