There are three types of lighting normally used in the home. There is daylight, by opening blinds or curtains. Fluorescent light, which gives a cool light, it also adds a greenish tint to the area. Incandescent light, which comes from candles or regular bulbs, this light gives a yellow, warming glow throughout a room.

If you are looking to add a new look with lighting to a living room area or family room, try adding a large mirror it reflects the light and spreads it all around the room. Light wood and softly textured furnishing absorb the light and help accent the soft mood of a room.

A chandelier provides the light needed for a dining or general work table. The chandelier performs dual duties. It not only illuminates a table area, but it provides lighting for the whole room with a soft level of light. To control the amount of light from the fixture, add a dimmer switch to set the mood for the occasion or task.
