 Revampt Goods offers unique home furnishings and accessories for your home, including lighting.  Choosing light for your home is sometimes the most difficult in interior decoration!  Lighting is one of the most important factors in making your house a home.  Lighting creates ambiance, makes you feel safer, cozy and comfortable, and allows you to perform activities to its fullest potential, or at least safely! Revampt Goods guide gives tips on choosing appropriate lighting for your home!

Function

What is the function you need your light for?  Will it be hanging from the ceiling and provide the main source of light for the room?  If yes, then you will want a larger piece and will need it to illumine the entire room.  Be sure the size proportions are balanced with the room’s size.  If you have a larger room, or have high ceilings, you will need a larger piece.  If you don’t need a lighting source to illumine the entire room, but just a corner, ask yourself what function the lighting is required for?  If reading, you will most likely want a down light, as in a lamp with a shade casting light down.  If it is the corner of a kitchen and need specific lighting for counter tops, consider track lighting or hanging sconces.  If you are wanting a little extra light for a corner behind a chair or plant, try an up-light canister.

Secondary to function is the ambiance lighting provides.  The ambiance is the mood lighting creates.  Variation in lighting creates ambiance.  This lighting can be used above artwork, or sconces in a hall way, or just an extra lamp on an entry console table.  Wall sconces are perfect for creating a little drama through uplighting in areas where downlight is not needed, such as hallways or entryways.  Floor lamps create downlight.  Placing them in larger, open spaces will create a more intimate relaxed environment, particularly near conversational areas.
