The personality of the home decorator or designer can be represented effectively by the use of decorative lighting. The usability of lampshades to create the look and effectiveness of the lighting is totally important. To find the most appropriate outlook of the personal decorating style can be done by conducting an experiment with different styles and sizes. There are many lampshade fabrics that can be taken to complete the rooms from cotton, damask, silk to linen, and take the advantage of them. And there are still lampshades embellished with all kinds of decorative accessories. These rooms have a mixture of lighting needs.
Kitchens and utility areas call for bright general lighting along with task lighting for counter-tops and prep areas. Living rooms, dens, and family rooms require lamps for reading as well as low level lighting for glare-free television viewing. Bathrooms are best lit with fixtures mounted above or on each side of the mirror, so that shadows are minimized. If your room is in need of more natural light, think about installing an economical tubular skylight such as the Solatube. Another way to boost daylight is to hang a mirror opposite a window, so that the natural glow is automatically amplified all day long.
