Tips for improving interior lighting in your home

Problem No.1: Using one light source

One bright overhead light may seem like the most efficient way to light up your living room, but it can be harsh and not suited for all hours of the day.

The fix: Layer your lighting using a combination of ambient, task, and accent lights.

Problem No. 2: Lack of task lighting in the kitchen
One of the most important places to have task lighting is the kitchen. After all, there are a lot of tasks to do there!

The fix: Use overhead fixtures, ceiling lights, and under-cabinet lighting to illuminate countertops.

Problem No. 3: Vanity light is the only light source in the bathroom
Vanity lighting looks good in a bathroom but falls short in illuminating the whole bathroom space.

The fix: Use a variety of accent lighting that complements the vanity light.
