Bellacor "Shines the Light" on Creating Ambiance in Your Home
Mendota Heights, MN (PRWEB) March 5, 2007 - After carefully selecting your home's furnishings, rugs and accessories, Bellacor, the largest online retailer of lighting products, helps inspire it with ambiance through the subtle power of lighting.
It's always gratifying when a guest tells you how great your place looks. What they're really talking about is how great your home makes them feel - in other words, its ambiance. Whatever mood you want your home to communicate, cozy warmth or youthful excitement; intimacy or industry; serenity or grandeur, lighting effects have a magical way of transforming how we experience a room.
Of course, a room's size, decor, color scheme and furniture layout also play a role. But it's the lighting that pulls everything together and infuses the room with personality. The minute you walk into a room, the lighting subtly engages your senses and evokes an unconscious emotional response.
When planning lighting, you should consider both the activities the room is used for, as well as the mood you want it to convey. If you enjoy elegant entertaining in the living room, you may want to create a sense of drama and beauty with recessed lights and gracious accent lamps. A multi-functional family room requires more lighting flexibility. You may want soft, indirect lighting for a cozy evening of TV watching, bright, overhead lighting for active games and task lighting for quiet reading. Multiple moods can be achieved in the same space with the effective use of lighting.
Here are seven suggestions from Bellacor lighting specialists for how you can be creative with lighting and achieve the ambiance you're after. No matter what your style, mood or budget, Bellacor offers thousands of choices to light-up your imagination and meet all your lighting needs.
