This month for the Kitsap Sun, I wrote about how important it is to thoughtfully consider the element of lighting when approaching a remodel, or any type of interior update. The best mixes of lighting include overhead, task and ambient light, all working together to create a cohesive look, and cozy vibe. Check out what types of fixtures I chose for my clients who are just starting a remodel of their main living spaces, in the article, here.
I used a computer aided design program to lay out the general plan, but all you really need is paper and pencil. Simply sketch an aerial view of your space, to get a better sense of how you can strategically place lighting.
