One more thing to consider when installing your new, sustainable lighting is where to install it. There are optimum locations to place the light to ensure maximum impact. This can be particularly important when investing in a more expensive lighting option.
For ceiling hanging options, choosing the centre of the room may not always be the most effective place to install lighting; assess your room, the arrangement of your furniture and position of the windows. It may be best to place your lighting in a location where fewer shadows will be cast thus improving the reach of each light in the room. The same considerations should be made for wall hanging and floor standing lighting. Making the most of each light in your room can really boost the atmosphere of the room, particularly when you choose to accentuate a particular lighting piece.
