Wall washers either installed on the wall or aimed down from the ceiling are used mostly to highlight decorative features such as an art piece or a textured finish like a brick wall. However the psychological effect created by lighting the walls can make the whole room feel much brighter.

Keep the overhead light at 150 to 300 watts for optimum illumination. Mix and match your lighting fixtures. They don’t have to be from the same lighting family or design. Notice how in this room the star motif overhead — a look that is trending now — the night table lamps and candle wall sconces mix styles.

Access to more sunlight can have profound effects on the efficiency of your home’s building envelope or skin. It’s always best to assess your house from a whole-building design approach. In new constructions we have the liberty to consider daylighting from the initial design stages. Skylights can be an integrated part of the design of a house allowing the interior to feel as though it’s connected with the exterior. The proportion of glass compared to the rest of the house can be calculated to reach certain energy-efficiency goals.

Notice that this space also includes a pendant sconces and art lamps (more on those later) as well as a full wall of windows.

Simple skylights can be used to bring extra light to a room as a substitute for artificial lighting throughout the day. More complex skylights can even offer an access point for roof maintenance (ideal for checking up on a green roof for example). Skylights can be fixed vented tinted or even combined with an automated shutter system and can include a fly screen. A light tube on the other hand is good for rooms that don’t have a ceiling at roof level. It’s basically a reflective pipe that bounces the daylight down to the room where it is needed. Light tubes can be combined with lighting fixtures so the same area that lets in daylight during the day can double as a light for the evening.

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.

Track lighting got a bit of a bad reputation in the 1990s but when used properly it is still functional and beautiful especially for the kitchen. Pot lights aimed straight down will add general illumination but not necessarily hit the counter. An angled ceiling light on a track can put task lighting exactly where you need it. Undercabinet lighting can also achieve a similar effect. Combining both will make task lighting in the kitchen look effortless.
