Most of us have had the unfortunate experience of being somewhere with poor lighting. Whether at a friend’s home, a lodging establishment, or even your own home, bad lighting can have a serious impact on your mood. Lighting that is too bright or too dim for the task at hand can also make it challenging to get through your daily activities and hobbies. If you add overhead lights to your space, though, you can not only illuminate the room, but also create ambiance and set the mood.
Create the Perfect Lighting for Events
With the holiday season coming up, you may be considering hosting your loved ones for a meal or other get-together. The right overhead lighting can fill in any gaps left by floor lamps, table lamps and other light fixtures. Take care when you add overhead lights that they are not the only lights in the room. This can create harsh shadows, particularly on faces, so you’ll want to include additional lights at varying heights to complete the lighting design.
To create a festive mood for any occasion, you can add overhead lights with dimmers, enabling you to adjust the brightness to suit the vibe you want to achieve. Many modern overhead lights also include smart capabilities, allowing you to program various lighting designs for future use. You can even program some of them to change automatically throughout the day as the natural light changes. With some lights, you can change the colors as well to create a truly festive, fun atmosphere for your party.
Focus on Your Hobbies or Work with Overhead Lighting
If you’re like many Arizona residents, you’ve been spending more time at home these days and may even be working entirely from home. This may have brought to your attention the need to add overhead lights to make it easier to get your work done. When you are struggling to see detail in your work or hobbies, even simple tasks can suddenly become incredibly challenging and far less enjoyable.
When you add overhead lights in your work area, you can target the areas where you need it most so that you can focus on important tasks. Again, be sure to round out your lighting design with a desk lamp, floor lamp or other fixture to prevent extreme shadows that can obscure your work.
Improve Your Interior Aesthetic
You don’t just need to add overhead lights for specialized tasks and occasions; great overhead lighting can transform the entire look of your space, no matter what you are doing.
To determine where you could get the most benefits from adding overhead lights, spend a bit of time in each room in your home at several points throughout the day. This will give you a better sense of how the lighting changes in each room as the sun moves across the sky.
Take note of any areas that seem especially dim or where your mood seems to dip. With better lighting, you’ll not only beautify the space, but also make it more enjoyable for spending time in. This way, you can actually relish spending time at home, as the lighting will be much more conducive to positive moods.
