ADD MORE LIGHT TO COMPACT SPACES

You must have noticed that low-intensity lights create an illusion that a space is closed and compact. Therefore, it is suggested to go for high-intensity lighting for small rooms. We all want those small spaces to feel warm and inviting, which is why sconces are a great way to light up any room! They’re perfect for lining the walls and adding just enough light where it’s needed most and they don’t take up too much space because of their small stature.

BRIGHTEN UP THE CORNERS

A room with an even flow of artificial lights also looks wide and spacious and to do so you must focus on corners! Corners are the spaces of a home that are usually neglected in an interior design. Whereas it is a space that has the potential to add luxe to a space. Try hanging pendants in the corner.  Since they are suspended, they work in any corner of your room. Arrange them with various heights for a more interesting and industrial look. If you want lighting to double as an accent piece, use floor lamps in your corners. They come in so many colors and materials you will find one that goes best with your décor. Moreover, when you brighten up the corners with floor lamps or pendant lights, it makes a room appear wider.

 

DETERMINE THE RIGHT COLOR TEMPERATURE OF LIGHTING

Lighting temperature plays a visible role in enhancing the décor of a home. It also makes a room appear wider. The temperature of the lighting ranges from cool to warm. It is used in a lighting design as per the lighting requirements. You may include a cool temperature of lighting in your home to make it appear bigger. Cool lighting has the potential to brighten up space especially when you do it while leaving more of a floor plan free. You can include it in the form of accent lights, task lights, or simply as ambient lighting.
