You don’t always need to rely on lighting fixtures to enjoy a well-lit home or office. Plus, you’ll benefit from the natural mood boost from daylight.
3. Stick to Three Lights Per Room
That’s all you really need to create layered lighting that generates a positive atmosphere – just remember to use three different types of lighting, such as wall lights, ceiling lights, and floor lamps.
4. Use Light Sensors or Timers
