Bright idea for dimmed lighting: To make the most of your lighting install the highest-wattage lightbulb possible then dim it down to accommodate the mood and lighting needs. Consider putting dimmers on both overhead lighting and lamp lighting.
Adding lights as decorative elements helps set a mood in a space. Provided that general lighting is already installed using lights instead of wall art can be a decorative way to provide ambient lighting.
