Lighting design can be a difficult task for homeowners but can be one of the most important aspects of a home, inside and out.

This article on Home Advisor talks about the basics of home design and what homeowners should keep in mind when choosing light fixtures. One basic principle of lighting is including the use of natural light. Natural light should be utilized whenever possible because it is more economical, generally pleasant and can add to your overall design. There are also several different types of lighting to consider when talking about lighting design such as modern, classic and rustic lighting fixtures. Modern lighting fixtures tend to be smaller and can be changed without a hassle and allow movement such as track lighting. Classic lighting fixtures tend to show more craftsmanship such as chandeliers or ornate wall sconces. Rustic lighting fixtures are simple and sturdy and are usually placed around materials such as wood, brick and stone. To learn more, visit the article below.
