Shed some light on the situation - Choosing
the right lighting for your home
There are no right or wrong answers, but it pays to keep the following
in mind as you work through your lighting plan...
To minimise the appearance of surface irregularities the following is recommended:
Wash lighting accentuates specific colours, making them appear richer. Recessed lighting fixtures placed correctly will wash over a wall creating dramatic light and shadow effects. Use spotlights sparingly. A spotlight focussed on a fixed point on the surface creates a hot spot and distorts the finish colour. Softer diffused lighting can be achieved through the use of tinted glass, net curtains, blinds, well chosen lightshades and soft tone lightbulbs.
Selecting lighting for areas of your home:
See the Lighting Plus look book for ideas on how to combine lighting with your favourite Resene paints, wallpapers and curtains.
