When it comes to interior design, lighting is something which you should give a good deal of time and attention to. It doesn't matter if you're redecorating a single room because you feel like a change, or are giving your entire home a makeover, lighting plays a key role. For some people, lighting is viewed as an essential part of the home for a purely functional reason, but these people are failing to see the bigger picture. With the right lighting in place you can completely transform the look and feel of a room, or an entire home.
Natural light will immediately make a room appear larger, but if your room doesn't have windows, or has fairly small windows, there are other things you can do. You can make a room seem larger by drawing people's gaze upwards, as when the eye moves vertically, rather than horizontally, rooms seem larger. Try placing light fittings higher up on your walls, or perhaps try adding some hanging lights from your ceiling.Recessed lighting can have a similar effect, with lights set into the ceiling or wall. These lights won't take up any additional space in your room, but will make it feel brighter and more open.
