Lighting Details

We all know how drastic the right lighting can make or break a home.  Correct lighting takes an empty room and creates a warm, comforting ambience that will set the entire mood of a space.  As with anything - it's good to know some basic 'rules' when installing lighting and light fixtures.  I was forwarded an email from Circa Lighting that had some awesome basic lighting guidelines to follow - I had to share!  I also included some of my favorite light fixtures for each space as well.

If you all have not checked out www.circalighting.com yet - it is a must.  The prices can be a little on the high end, but you never know when you can run into a sale, and the inspiration alone is priceless.


ISLAND LIGHTING:




1  //  2  //  3  //  4  //  5  //  6

ENTRYWAY LIGHTING:




1  //  2  //  3  //  4  //  5  //  6

DINING ROOM LIGHTING: TO BE CONT'D TOMORROW....!

What do you all think - will any of you use these dimensions when designing your next space?  Or will you go more off of what "feels" right?

  1. I'm so glad I saw this when I did! I just got off the phone with the contractor to have the electrician change the pendant lighting distance to 30" between the 2 lights over the 6' island!! THANK YOU SO MUCH, SHELBY!!
