Designing with Light in a Bedroom

When creating a lighting scheme for a bedroom, you will want to consider options that produce an environment that’s both relaxing and conducive to rest but still bright enough to navigate when the shades are drawn closed.  This can be achieved through a gentle blend of both general and task lighting that fits your particular needs.  How much of each type of lighting needs to be present, will be based on your lifestyle, age and whether you like to read before going to sleep.  General lighting along with table lamps, wall lights or sconces can give you the illumination you need to dress and see into drawers and closets. 
 Quoizel Lighting offers a wide variety of bedroom lighting that is both attractive and practical. 


The Importance of Focused Lighting

Providing sufficient lighting inside your home is much more than adding a few lamps. The difference between a house and a home is the attention to detail that you put into each aspect of the home’s design. When it comes to lighting, keep the same perspective in mind. To show you the importance of focused lighting, we have tackled the challenging project of lighting a basement game room.

Basements are notoriously dark and dreary because of the lack of windows.  At the same time however, this makes them the easiest to improve. Consider the project of lighting a game room. There must be sufficient lighting around the game table or other main area, so that players can see the game.


Eco-Friendly Ways to Brighten Your Kitchen

If you’re like many homeowners who planned on remodeling this year but had to postpone due to rising gas and food prices, don’t despair. There are still a number of economical ways that you can update the look of various areas of your home without breaking the bank. Your kitchen is one of the easiest places to do so and can truly be revitalized with just a few simple lighting changes. “Just merely changing out the decorative lighting fixtures over the breakfast nook or center island can have a big visual impact, creating a fresher, more up-to-date look – and it is considerably less expensive than replacing the cabinets or countertops,” according to the American Lighting Association. Maybe that original out-dated lighting fixture in your kitchen that came with the house decades ago just doesn’t match with the newer appliances you’ve updated the room with in the years since purchasing. That’s a great example of an item that can be simply updated to make a world of difference in the room’s aesthetics.
