If a room is lit the right way, everyone looks at their best, feels relaxed and comfortable.

Lighting can make or break a room. Here, how to get it Right.

Living Room:

In living rooms, use a combination of floor lamps, table lamps, and down-lights (recessed or track lighting). Here the lighting should be part of the decor.

Dining Room:

In the dining room, an overhead chandelier with a dimmer works best. If you're using track lighting, be sure not to shine the light directly on the faces of guests around your table.


Kitchen lighting is more complex. Pinpoint your work areas and light them directly. Ideally, lights should be below your eye level. Set up task lights under the stove range or cabinets to light countertops.


Bathrooms are trickier. Some say to go the clinical route—the brighter the better—especially at the vanity. But others prefer a softer glow from dimmable sconces. Compromise and incorporate both with the addition of candelabra lights.

Master Bedroom:

Master bedrooms should feature good reading lights at the bed and desk, and a task light for getting dressed. Any overhead lighting should be fit with a dimmer.
