Types of Lighting Needed For Each Room


What most people don’t think about when it comes to home design is the lighting. It’s very much an after-thought when all is said and done, but it is as important as choosing the paint color of a room. Some areas like the kitchen or laundry room require special lighting because of the activity involved. The level of intensity and brightness in lighting should differ between each room to ensure your home is properly lit. Read on to see what kind of lighting you should have depending on each room in your home.



Most kitchens need more than one light source to ensure that it is properly lit for the work you do in the room. If there is a lot of activity daily in your kitchen, like cooking and your kids’ schoolwork, then you may need a ceiling fixture or recess lighting to evenly distribute the light around the room.
