#1 Relying on Only One Light Source

The key to good lighting is layering it at different heights. “Don’t rely on only one kind of light source. Mix a variety of overhead and floor or table lamps,” Alan Tanksley says. “Warm ‘pools’ of light draw people in and create intimacy.”

#2 Using Overhead Lighting That’s Too Bright

According to Barclay Butera, “there’s nothing worse than bright lights that make you feel like you’re onstage”. He recommends using dimmers and soft white bulbs in every room, including bathrooms, because “lighting shouldn’t wash down on you: It’s harsh and unflattering.”

#3 Going Overboard With Recessed Lighting

Anthony Baratta says: “use recessed lighting sparingly. Too many fixtures turn your ceiling into Swiss cheese!”. Plus, be mindful of where you place that kind of lighting, because “limit overhead can lighting to functional areas such as bathrooms and laundry rooms — the light is too harsh and flat for your living areas”.


#4 Forgetting About Dimmers

To Martyn Lawrence Bullard, “lighting is everything. It creates atmosphere, drama, and intrigue in a room. The easiest way to accomplish this is with a dimmer switch. I always use dimmers, even in the powder room!”.

#5 Light Switches Placed in the Wrong Place

“We locate light switches about 36″ above the floor. That way they stay out of the way of the art on our walls. We put switches about 1½” to 2″ off the side of the door casing for the same reason”, Gil Shafer explains.
