Rustic Kitchen Design Ideas

Lights are one of the most important elements of a room. It creates a mood. Bright lights create an upbeat vibe and work well in kitchens and bathrooms. However, bright lights are not a good choice in a room where you would like a subtler mood.

Try dimmer lights for bedrooms and living rooms, if that’s the mood you desire to create.

While fluorescent light bulbs save energy, and last longer than incandescent bulbs, they are not always ideal for some areas of the home. They emit a harsher, more blueish light than incandescents. Fluorescent bulbs are often fine for kitchens and bathrooms. For areas like the den or living room, the softer, more subtle light of an incandescent bulb may be the better choice.

An interior-design tip that has just recently come into fashion is to raise the ceilings in the home. Almost all new homes are built with vaulted or tray ceilings. Many older homes can be renovated because builders actually dropped the ceilings in the kitchens and bathroom areas, so there is a foot or more of unused space up above the existing ceiling.

You should consider the amount of lighting that you currently have in the rooms in your home. Two of the smallest rooms in a home are traditionally the bathroom and kitchen. They can seem even smaller in size if the lighting is not right. All rooms should always have proper lightning depending on the size of the room. When your bathrooms and kitchen have sufficient lighting, the small space will not feel cramped.
