Lighting and Interior Design

 Chandeliers
Lights are an important aspect of interior design. It changes a room’s mood and perceived size. Your light choices work in conjunction with your color and furniture selections. Generally, they enhance your home’s natural light.
Modern fixtures are ideal for contemporary homes, and you can find a vast array of choices online. Crescent Harbor is a good example of an online store for modern lighting. With the right lights, all the design elements come together to transform a room. Here are three things to consider when you choose lighting for your home.

Color Management

Your choice of lighting can add to or subtract from a room’s colors. Dark colors make a room appear smaller, and light colors have the opposite effect. Lighting can give the room a cozy look or the illusion of space.

Functionality
Functionality is a major role of interior lighting. If your lighting choices do not serve a purpose, they simply waste energy. Consider your lighting for its functionality as well as mood and design. While some options work for overall illumination, your desks and other work areas need task lighting.

Space and Size
Natural and man-made light work together to create an illusion of space. Use full-spectrum, natural light for dark rooms. Natural light shows off the colors better than man-made lighting. Central lights and corner lamps brighten a room and make it feel larger.
