Home Remodeling Tips: 3 Ideas for Lighting Your Home, Rochester, New York

The summer months provide a lot of natural lighting for your home, but soon, days will start to get shorter and indoor lighting will once again take the spotlight. Whether you’re gearing up for a home remodeling project or simply want to update your lighting, Arrow Kitchens & Bath in Webster, NY, recommends taking each of your home’s rooms into consideration when it comes to both task and ambient lights.

3 Brilliant Lighting Ideas for Your Home

1. Kitchen

When it comes to task lighting in a kitchen, the brightest and most functional lights should be located near the counters and sink, where most food preparation takes place. Most sinks are located near windows for this reason, but mounting a light directly over the sink is smart for months when natural light is scarce. Accent lights can be added to give your kitchen an attractive glow when it’s not being used.

2. Bathroom

Bathroom vanities are meant for personal grooming, and wall-mounted fixtures provide better results than overhead lights. Wall sconces — two on either side of the mirror, and one on another wall — are a popular arrangement that give bathrooms a touch of elegance.

3. Living Room

Living rooms are common gathering places for entertainment purposes, but task lighting is still important. Movable table or floor lamps can be used for reading and other activities, but lights should never be placed so that they cause glares on a television or mirror. Valance lights are a smart choice for ambiance lighting.
