4 Types of Lighting and How to Use Them in Your Signature Pointe Apartment

lightingLighting is often overlooked when decorating and arranging your home. Take a moment to think about the importance of light. Aside from being necessary, light can set a mood and create an atmosphere. 

Here are four different types of lighting that can be used in your Signature Pointe Apartment:

  • Natural light is beautiful, and free! To maximize the natural lighting in your apartment, use light-colored sheer curtains to create a diffused glow, or if you want to block out harsher direct light, go with blinds or opaque drapes. Hanging mirrors on the walls is a good way to increase the natural light in your home.
  • Electric light. “Uplighting” is more pleasant than overhead light. Floor lamps and movable lamps that can be pointed toward the ceiling create a more pleasant atmosphere.
  • Accent lighting is a good way to bring out a focal point in a room, such as a piece of hanging art or a freestanding sculpture. Spotlights are great for this. Other lighting can help create mood. Examples include candlelight and strands of mini-lights.
  • Task lighting. Flexible table lamps that give adequate lighting for homework or projects work well for this.

The right lighting can make a huge difference!
