Lighting is one of the most important parts of your home. Without it, it would be very difficult to do basic tasks without a large risk of injury. Today’s advance in materials and technology also allows us to add a decorative spin to lighting fixtures and accent your home with a bold statement. There are many lighting ideas, some for large rooms, and some with smaller rooms in mind. With all the options available, it’s hard to choose which one is right for which room. Well, we at Mr.Potlight are happy to give you some helpful tips to using pot lights as a stand-alone or with other lights to make your home shine.
Pot lights by themselves are an excellent choice when it comes to lighting your home. They have many possibilities and ways you can set them up to have a stylish lighting setup.
–Rows: Setting pot lights up in rows creates a sit-down bar feeling and is great for any place of entertainment or even an at-home bar. Rows are also great for lighting a room when spaced out correctly, allowing for a constant and even lighting across the entire room, getting rid of uneven lighting and darks spots in the room.
-Under cabinet lighting: under cabinet lighting is a great way to add depth and warmth to your kitchen by lighting up your counter. It’s also very practical, allowing you to use minimal light and save energy whilst still allowing for a safe amount of light to work and walk around.
-Bathroom lighting: Because pot lights are sealed completely and are flush with the ceiling, pot lights are ideal for stand-up showers and bathrooms because they provide a full lighting source without fogging up or shorting out because of moisture.
Compound lighting is when you mix two lighting sources together for one room, and it’s very common to see that in larger rooms, where you have multiple smaller lights, usually pot lights, around a large decorative lighting source. The most common place to see this is in halls or large dining areas, but it’s also common to see this in larger rooms in someone’s home.
-Chandelier: having pot lights circled around a chandelier allows for a fully lit room without taking the attention away from the chandelier, which is the centerpiece. Experiment with different bulbs or light colours to get the best light colour without making the room look pale.
-Kitchen lighting: Compound lighting with kitchen lighting is a popular choice to have. With smaller lighting fixtures mixed with pot lights to form an even lighting scheme and even accent your kitchen to make it look larger than it is.
