The piece must feel solid and robust while simultaneously not looking overwhelming when put in the room. Solid wood frames will last longer but you shouldn’t pay a fortune. Match your needs to your perceived quality-price ratio. Avoid particleboard and aluminum frames. When it comes to sofas and chairs, they need to feel comfortable. Always sit and test.

Design

The design of the furniture must be consistent with that of your other pieces. Are they trendy, vintage or timeless? Choose something that you know you will like when you see it every day.

Finish

Look for stains, exposed wood or inconsistent color. That doesn’t necessarily mean you shouldn’t buy it. If you are into fixing or repurposing, that can be a great way to save money when buying the furniture.

Fabric

If the furniture will be used frequently, it’s suggested that you go with darker colors. If it is meant to be more formal or to serve a room that only hosts specific occasions, you can opt for lighter fabrics to give it a distinct touch.

Element of surprise

10 Tips for Lighting Your Home

The lighting in your home has much more of an impact than you may actually imagine. The distinct variations in natural light from dusk till dawn affect us psychologically and are one of the factors that explain our differences in mood, comfort and humor throughout the day. Our home lighting does just that.

Lighting can both help us feel better and work better. It can help us rest or be more productive. That’s why your lighting solutions should be different from room to room across the house. They should be adapted to the purpose of each place. This is even more important now that millions of people work from home and many do it in badly lit environments.

Nowadays, designers know the importance of multi-color lighting around the house and how to alternate between cooler or warmer lights in a way that contributes to the wellbeing of the inhabitants.

Take a look at some of the tips you should definitely consider when adding light to your home.

The kitchen

In the kitchen, you should try lighting the working surfaces directly. You can do so by using downlighters, strips under the cupboards and pendants. They should create layers of light instead of it coming from just one source.

Downlights

Downlights are very functional and affordable. But they won’t emphasize your decor or improve the atmosphere. Try thinking of other lighting solutions before opting for downlights.

Daylight

Artificial lighting will never surpass the quality and the benefits of the natural light. If you spend a lot of time at home you should go for a quick walk every day. Our bodies are not designed to constantly live under home lighting. Also, try eating and reading near the windows.

Switches

Think about if you want two-way lighting switches or something different. Decide where they will be and if they should be adapted to kids. You can even opt for ways of controlling the lights that don’t involve switches.

Looking around for ideas

Every time you go somewhere, whether it is your friend’s house or a café, look at the lighting choices. Public places like bars, hotels, book stores or restaurants often have very exciting, innovative and pleasing lighting solutions. Go to the department store and see how the model rooms are lit.

Sleeping lights

Ideally, we should sleep in complete darkness. Our body’s need for darkness while sleeping is just as important as the need for brightness during the day. Only when we are exposed to absolutely no exterior stimulae will our bodies release the natural healing hormones. If you prefer to have some kind of lighting, use low-level light in shades of amber or red.

There you have it. Some specific lighting recommendations that are not at all difficult to apply but can make a difference in your wellbeing. You should also never forget some of the more general home lighting rules, such as:

Planning ahead. You should decide on your lighting before completing your decoration. You need to consider how to apply cords, sockets and switches.

Covering all the main lighting points: general, temporary, functional and decorative.

Choosing energetically efficient bulbs such as LED or neon-compact.

Having a well-lit home office environment. Place lamps on the desks, nightstands, furniture of corners.

All of the tips we went through will make your home living more healthy, functional, fun and efficient.
