Consider your lighting preferences during the initial design phase of a new build or renovation. For example if you want three pendant lights over your dining table instead of one or two that should be taken into account before construction starts.
All-around lighting includes general lighting and natural light. You want to ensure that at any time of day there is enough light for everyone to effectively use the space without incident and that any dark areas are minimized.
I’ll let you in on a little secret that designers use to get that photo-ready finish in a home: layers of light. Just like with clothing and accessories in fashion when creating your interior lighting scheme layering your light sources helps create a rich look that highlights great features and eliminates harsh shadowing. To do that you’ll need an approach that combines many different styles of fixtures and sources.
