Maryland homeowners have discovered this cost-effective trick and come to The Light House to browse through our selection of home lighting. Here are a few different ways you can use this type of home lighting in your house!

You can use ambient lighting to illuminate an entire room. This type of home lighting is generally placed on or near the ceiling, and it’s a great way to cast plenty of light, especially in a room that needs a lot of light, like your kitchen or living room. Accent lighting, on the other hand, is directional lighting that is meant to draw the eye to a specific object, like a painting or a piece of furniture.

Either type of home lighting can easily be updated, and there are plenty of new and up and coming trends. You should visit our lighting store so we can show you what we have in stock, and we will be happy to show you the most contemporary pieces we have for sale.

When choosing your home lighting, you should consider a few factors. For one thing, think about the purpose of the room. If you are updating the lighting in your bathroom, you definitely want an overhead light, but you probably also want smaller lights around your bathroom vanity to make applying make-up and styling your hair easier. You can even get a small nightlight to plug in, so if anyone has to go to the bathroom during the night time hours, they will not have to worry about turning on a bright overhead light. If you are updating the lighting in your basement, you might want to consider recessed lighting. Recessed lighting does not take up that much space, and it is a great way to illuminate your basement since, in general, basements do not get a lot of natural light.

Pendant lights are a great home lighting solution for your dining room. You get an interesting focal point, and you also get a lovely way to illuminate your table. This can make it more pleasant for you, your family and your guests to dine and socialize.
