Unique lighting ideas that add the wow factor
Use this formula to determine the perfect amount of lighting needed for your room. Room length X Room width x 1.5 = Amount of wattage to light a room. If your room is 10 x 12, you would multiply 10 x 12 x 1.5 = 180 Watts. You can divide the 180 watts amongst lamps, ceiling lighting, wall sconces, etc.
Box style, modern sconces create a bit of ambiance and become the focal point on an otherwise large, blank wall. This feature can be used in just about any room.
Kitchens need bright general lighting plus task lighting. Most homeowners would move toward using recessed lighting, but this homeowner uses light as if it was a sculptural piece of art. This unique lighting idea will catch just about anyone's eye.
