Where to begin your Lighting Renovation?

Light fixtures are a perfect way to change the overall feel of any room. Some builders and contractors often view lighting as an afterthought rather than a critical style element. The right lighting fixture can transform a room into something new, unique and exciting.

Any interior designer will tell you that good lighting is the most important element of home decorating. Whatever the style, the lighting in a room sets the mood. The versatility of lighting fixtures allows you to express your individual taste and style. General Lighting is the most basic form of lighting, also known as "ambient" lighting, and is used in place of natural sunlight. It enables us to see what we're doing from walking across the room to playing with toys with your kids. It can be accomplished through the use of lamps, chandeliers, ceiling or wall mounted fixtures. It is fundamental to any home or room. 

Flush mount ceiling and sconce wall light fixtures can create a warm and inviting atmosphere, while providing you with the ambient lighting you need to greet guests and assure safety throughout your home. Chandeliers add sparkle and drama to a room, while pendants are best for task lighting. Accent Lighting adds intrigue, drama and flare to any room. Use it to focus attention on artwork, highlight architectural features, or set a mood. The key to accent lighting is to provide at least three times as much light on the focal point as the ambient light around it. 

Interior Lighting Basics

Most interior lighting is focused more on function and serves a purpose instead of decorating a room. This is not the case at Mikael Darni & Company, where the selection of interior lighting is both beautiful and practical. 

The interior lighting choices at Mikael Darni & Company are impressive with a style to fit any need and decor. Consider a traditional pendant light with a single lamp and an attractive glass shade. A wall sconce can be a pleasant addition to a room and can serve not only as a source of light, but as a conversation piece as well. 

Flush mount fixtures are found overhead in nearly every room of the house and are available in a number of attractive metal finishes and colorful glass shades.

We would appreciate
your feedback and will be happy answer any question that you might have!

Happy Renovating!
