There are two rules of thumb: You should have a mix of light sources at different levels to create a flattering ambiance and you need appropriate task lighting for whatever you do in that space (reading, sautéing, getting dressed). Here are five key spots for your guide to lighting placement.
The best choice for applying makeup is sidelights, such as a pair of sconces flanking the mirror. An overhead light helps fill in any shadows on your face and also fully illuminates the room. In a large space, you might also want a light directly over the shower. Source: DelightFULL
Aim for a cozy, insular atmosphere: Place reading lamps or sconces by the bed—but not pointed directly at it. If you have recessed or track fixtures, angle them away from the bed, toward the dressing area. On a low table, include a small, intimate lamp with a tinted low-wattage bulb to mimic candlelight.Source: DelightFULL
Focus on overhead lighting (on a dimmer that you can crank up when cooking), and add lower sources to illuminate work surfaces. Use pendants, under-cabinet lights or a sturdy table lamp (kept away from the sink). Source: DelightFULL
To draw people in, make the table the brightest spot in the room. Use a chandelier or a pendant above the table, limiting the total wattage to 10.. Elsewhere in the room, indirect light is the best – it’s relaxing and flattering. Give the space a subtle glow with a pair of small table lamps on a sideboard or matching sconces on the wall above. Battery-powered votives inside a glass front china cabinet can be a nice touch.Source: DelightFULL Source: DelightFULL Source: DelightFULL
