Living Room Lighting Ideas

Living room lighting is very important to any home owner that takes his home decor seriously. The living room in most homes serves multiple important purposes, combining the functions of a TV/Movie room, guest lounge and family playground. Even in homes where all those have specially designated rooms, these activities still tend to converge in the living room, because of it’s large space and general versatility of function.

Outdoor Pot Lights Ideas

Outdoor lighting solutions differ from indoor lighting for two main reasons. First of all, outdoor light fixtures need to be well resistant to the natural distraction elements, which are mainly water and temperature. An outdoor light fixture that is not water resistant will be easily damaged and will become a hazard and create dangers that we don’t want to deal with, and a non-heat resistant one will be easily warped and will simply not outlast one season of snow and then summer heat.

The second reason is that outdoors (back or front yard) there are less walls and no ceiling that will reflect and multiply the light. A regular light bulb in the middle of the yard will be visible but will not light the yard enough, leaving a pool of darkness around it. A different approach needs to be explored in this case. Lights should be directed at walls and objects around the yard, so that they spread the light around them.
