buyingguideforlightfixturesLighting is one of the most important elements of interior design. Well-planned lighting designs improve a home’s functionality while creating a welcoming ambiance. Yet different rooms have different lighting needs. Whether you’re looking for cutting-edge contemporary light fixtures, transitional modern light fixtures or something more traditional, you can find stylish and affordable lighting solutions for any room at The Home Depot.
Refresh your bathroom with a wide selection of contemporary light fixtures from The Home Depot. Keep in mind that ambient and task-oriented bathroom light fixtures should be safety rated for damp or wet areas. For the best illumination over your mirror, opt for track lighting; lights set in strips minimize shadows by providing even, consistent illumination. For a warm glow that reduces glare, choose fixtures with frosted-glass designs. Recessed lighting opens up small bathrooms and enhances safety in darker spaces such as the shower.
Whether it’s a relaxing oasis or the social hub of your home, you can dress up your living room with decorative light fixtures. Track lighting is a great choice for highlighting the room’s focal points, such as artwork or furniture. Table and floor lamps are best for reading and other tasks that require direct light. Installing a dimmer switch is a smart way to control your living room’s ambience from day to night.
More than just somewhere to eat, the dining room is an ideal space to entertain friends and family. A dimmable statement light is a great way to set the mood here. For added drama, consider installing a hanging fixture such as a chandelier.
Add elegance to a small bedroom with decorative yet discreet flush-mount ceiling fixtures. For larger bedrooms, opt for stylish pendant lights. Bedside-table lamps are a practical and attractive lighting option, especially if you like to read before going to sleep.
Tip: Make the most of your new lighting by swapping incandescent bulbs for money-saving, energy-efficient LED light bulbs.
