A good balance of light in your home can lead to a happy, relaxing environment
There are certain energies that your home has, and we like to talk about feng shui as a way to balance those energies for good health. One aspect that’s not always discussed is the lighting in your home.
Balancing the lighting in your home can be difficult, since most areas of the home have multiple uses. You might be playing a family game at the living room table, and need a bright light to see. But an hour later you might just be relaxing with a book, and the harsh lighting can be very distracting.
That functionality of your lighting choices can be very important. If the lamp you purchased to read by isn’t very bright, your comfort while reading might not be very high. On the other hand, if you have a lamp to add soft ambiance to a corner area, and it is extremely bright, the effect is lost.
Aside from usage, the lighting you choose is not much different than a piece of furniture you might have in your home. The style of your lighting, especially with lamps, is important to the rest of the room. Just as with the wrong piece of furniture in a room, the wrong style of lamp can offset an otherwise beautiful and consistently designed area.

The right rugs and mats are important for your home
Imagine this: you’ve just remodeled your living room, and you can’t quite figure out why it doesn’t work. You have that beautiful, brand new sofa and matching lounge chair. You have a nice set of small tables that accent them perfectly. You’ve painted the walls a relaxing color, matching your new furniture well. Even the new window coverings are perfect. But something still isn’t right.
It may be the floor coverings. Maybe they just don’t work with the room and the furnishings.
It’s a simple thing to overlook, as we often don’t think about our feet when we’re redoing a room. But rugs and mats can be very important to the overall feel of the room.
