Making the most of your attic space can add a whole new layer to your home. Whether you have a spacious attic or something more cozy, the right lighting can be the first step in turning the space into something as beautiful and well decorated as the rest of your home. Here are two things to consider before lighting your attic.
Decide The Purpose Of Your Attic
Before you begin deciding how you want to light your attic, you have to decide its purpose in your home. Is it going to be your new home office, lit with work and productivity in mind? Will it be a child’s playroom, lit with fun and their smaller size in mind? This could mean no lamps or fixtures that might accidentally be knocked over, for example. Figuring out your attic’s purpose is the first step you have to take before you decide how to light it.
Natural Light Probably Isn’t Enough
Sometimes, if your attic has windows, you might be tempted to stick with natural light. This usually won’t create the feeling you want in the space, and should be complemented with other lighting fixtures to help give your attic the exact feel you want. Don’t settle for good enough. With the right lighting, you can make the space look exactly how you want it to, depending, once again, on your attic’s purpose in your home.
As you can see, figuring out the purpose of your attic is the first step to figuring out how to best light it. Once you’ve done that, you can check out our blog for different lighting ideas for your particular space. For more information or to browse our lighting choices, contact us today.
