Basements are no longer used solely for storage.  Basements are used for a variety of reasons these days from entertaining friends, to storage, living space and at times even  as a workshop.  It is important as with any living space to properly plan lighting design for your basement.

Recessed Lighting and track lighting are both perfect for basement lighting. Basements are usually used to entertain or for recreation. Both recessed lighting and track lighting easily enhacnce the décor of a space. While these type of fixtures can upgrade a space instantly, they are very inexpensive in comparison to other forms of lighting.
When designing lighting for your basement, make sure the basic components are addressed. For instance, when mapping out the placement of light switches, make sure a light switch is placed at the top of the stairs or at the entry of the basement. It can be very challenging and at times to enter a basement without proper lighting. The power switch for lighting should be easily accessible. Also, ensure there is adequate power for the lighting design. Poor planning in this area can lead to power failures, faulty wiring or worse, a fire. Finally as with lighting design for any room, consider the use of the room. If a portion of the basement will be used for a study or office, make sure adequate lighting is provided for reading or similar tasks.
Your basement lighting plan is just a second away. Proper planning and careful execution can yield wonderful results. The tips we have shared are sure to get your basement lighting plan off to a great start!

Recessed lighting is a form of lighting often used to enhance the décor in bathrooms. Recessed light fixtures can be used as general bathroom lighting or within showers or over a bathtub or whirlpool. While recessed lighting can be added during a home renovation, there are also forms of recessed lighting that has to be installed when the home is built. Let’s take a closer look at recessed light fixtures and the many possibilities of decorating with a recessed light fixture.
As mentioned above, recessed light fixtures can be used in the bathroom, specifically in the shower stall. Sounds dangerous right? Well, there are recessed light fixturesthat are “Suitable for Wet Locations”. If decorators plan to use a light fixture the fixture MUST carry the label “Suitable for Wet Locations”.
There are some recessed light fixtures that have to be installed before the ceiling is closed. This usually means that the fixture has to be installed as the house is being built. However, there are fixtures that can be added to a house that is not in building phases.
Recessed light fixtures lend many options to decorators looking to enhance their current lighting design. Sit down and create a plan to determine exactly what type of recessed lighting is required for your space.

Add a Personal Touch: DIY Light Fixtures

June 17, 2011 By: Administrator Category: Home Interior Lighting Options, Light Fixtures

Creating a custom light fixture for your home is an excellent option for homeowners looking to enhance their home’s decor. Not only are these light fixtures unique and one of a kind, they also allow individuals to add a touch of their personality to their home!

MopTopMaven created this beautiful Structural Pendant Lamp for her home. How beautiful! Think of the possibilities!

She even posts the following tutorial to help you get started:

DIY Structural Pendant Lamp (Adapted from Design*Sponge)
You will need:
40 Sheets of Felt (Although about 2 1/2 yards from a craft/fabric store should suffice, and will also be much cheaper)
Glue Gun
Glue Sticks

Melodi Lamp from Ikea (Mine was $12.99, although they had a BIG Melodi Lamp on sale for $4.99)
Scissors
Patience

Use a fabric pen/pencil to draw a circle about 1-2inches in diameter on a piece of felt.

Cut out the circle, and use it as a template to cut HUNDREDS of circles out – Don’t worry if your pieces aren’t all the same size.

Take a circle & fold it in half. With your hot glue gun, place a line of glue down the center of the crease [the back of the crease, not the front]

Overlap areas so that you can fill in the spaces, and create more of a “fluffy” appearance. That’s all there is to it, you can put them in all in one direction like I did, or lay them out randomly like Kate from Design Sponge.

Dale Tiffany Fruit Pool Hanging Light, Antique Brass and Art Glass Shade

A hanging light is not only used for illumination purposes but it also creates a great atmosphere and ambiance. Mostly seen in restaurants and hotels, these lights are also liked by people to create a focal point in any area whether indoor or outdoor. To facilitate their installation, hanging light fixtures are used. These fixtures are available in many different styles and varieties and help to adjust the height at which these lights should be hanged.

There are two basic types of light fixtures available; one is those that have cables or wires running through them while the second ones are merely used for supporting battery operated lights or globes. These fixtures can be fixed simply through using screws and nails which can be covered with a plate so that they do not look unpleasant to the eye. The chain or cord length can be adjusted so that the main globe or bulb is neither to far above nor too close. At a medium height the hanging fixture illuminates by creating the perfect light effect and does not cause any kind of hindrance in movement as well.

Stylish Light Fixture: Luciana Eight Light Chandelier

January 08, 2011 By: Administrator Category: Light Fixtures

Luciana Eight Light Chandelier – Burke Decor

The design inspiration of the Luciana family of fixtures has no specific dating, being an imaginative mix of historically inspired motifs creatively combined to create the unique effect. The supporting sculptural armature of wrought iron in St. Regis Bronze finish, here serving as exaggerated candle arms, is inspired by the early 18th century lyre framework of large crystal chandeliers. The net like effect of the tiny crystal buttons intricately draped arouns the framework is a 19th century concept. Candles springing from a profusion of elongated leaves is from an even later influence. The result is a delicate yet spectacular fixture that is daringly original in it’s total composition.
