Lighting plays an important role when it comes to home decor. Just like paint colors, lighting is something that needs special attention. Lighting can be used to create many effects. So, depending upon the lights you use, you can produce different effects. In a dull room addition of a light can help to brighten it up. In a small room lights can help open up the space. While in a room, when yellow lights are introduced they create a warm cozy ambiance. So, it all depends upon your selection of the light fixtures.

There are three important elements present in a lighting design. In a system there is a key light, fill light and backlight. Key light is basically the main source of light, which can be the sun or major light source used in the room to illuminate. Then there is the fill light which helps to soften the shadows on a particular subject. There is backlight which helps to illuminate a subject in a room further. Keep in mind these lighting basics and you will be able to do a better job for creating great lighting.
