How to Use Lighting to Modernize your Home
  • Opening Intro -

    Redecorating your home can be a tiresome activity; it isn't all about what paint or wall paper you choose that will alter the look and general atmosphere of your home.


Having high-quality lighting is a massively important factor that can transform your home from looking dingy to spacious and fabulous. Although you may not enjoy the decorating process, the result is extremely exciting. Your home needs to be modern and stylish with a touch of glamour. Here are a few tips on how you can use lighting to modernise and create a certain ambience in your home.

The Bathroom

This room needs to look fresh and gorgeous at all time of the day, it’s the part of the house that most of your guests will judge you on when they visit. To ensure that it looks fabulous and feels wonderfully relaxing it should be painted simply in natural tones but to really give it that modern edge you should include a few beautiful spotlights. Your chrome taps with sparkle in the beautiful lighting to create a magical and ethereal ambience that is just perfect for experiencing pure relaxation.

The Kitchen

Liven up your kitchen by installing a set of LED lights on the ceiling and the walls. Your kitchen should always be well lit; the counters should gleam and shine under the white light making your room appear modern, beautiful and chic. This type of lighting can really bring your interior to life and looks fabulously contemporary. Big, bold bright coloured counters and cupboards are this season’s biggest kitchen trends so a poorly lit room just will not do.

The Bedroom

For the romantics out there you need to have a dimmer switch installed so you can control whatever ambience you desire. It’s also perfect if you’re home alone and don’t fancy being completely in the dark! You can float off into an uninterrupted slumber in a dull-lit but not spookily dark room. Add an illuminated mirror to your room to make it feel wonderfully glamorous – that’s what every woman deserves. The right visible lighting needs to be matched with the perfect bed linen; tones of red, aubergine and navy blue were made for bedroom decor. Naturally you always need a bed side lamp so you don’t disturb your other half when you’re trying to read and they’re trying to sleep.

The Living Room

Your lounge or living room is where you are most likely to have the most technology such as the TV, stereo and games consoles so this room already looks incredibly modern. In order to produce a truly contemporary and on trend look you should think about installing LED strip lights; these look exceptionally brilliant especially in a room that features striking pieces of wall art. Include a few tall lamps around the room so when you’re trying to unwind by reading your favourite book you don’t have to strain your eyes.

LED lighting is gorgeous, modern and adds just the right amount of class to your home, so ensure you include at least one set into your house. Make sure your home stays looking contemporary and nothing short of fabulous. Poor lighting can make your home appear dull, lifeless and a little bit plain so it is essential that you install the best quality lights that you can afford. Add the finishing touch to your newly decorated home by ensuring it is incredibly well lit – it will surely impress your friends, family and house guests.
