Lighting can help create both a welcoming ambience and a more secure space - and put a smile on your and your visitors’ faces. Here are a few things you can follow to add more lighting to your place. There are a range of lighting types you can choose, from wall sconces, spotlights, a centerpiece ceiling lamp or a combination of all of these. Modern ceiling lights are a wonderful way to illuminate hallways without taking up too much space and at the same time add grandeur. For a long passageway, a series of modern ceiling lights should be used. Wall sconces are a perfect way to illuminate your hallway and stairways. They give off low level lighting that’s alluring without being distracting. Our tip is to space them out at ten feet intervals, you’ll have enough light to see safely without having to switch the main lighting source on. They look fantastic as well as stylishly and contemporary. Spotlights are an alternative to wall sconces. They can be placed strategically to illuminate shadowy places. Halogen bulbs can be used for spotlights and hallway lights. They’re environmentally friendly, durable and cheap to run. To get the perfect looking entrance, you shouldn’t concentrate solely on the lighting. Consider the colour of your walls and ceiling as well. Light colours such as white, yellow, pale blue and pale green have fantastic light reflection qualities and can make any room seem brighter and happier.
