To anyone that has ever decorated a home, you can relate that there is quite a bit of thought that needs to be put into it. When I was first getting ready to purchase my first home, I kinda assumed that what type of style of home I wanted would just pop into my house, and the whole setup and decorating process would be extremely easy. But little did I know that there is actually a great amount of work involved. From figuring out what type of style you want your house to be, to figuring out where everything will go, to figuring out what type of furniture you want. It is a huge process, and I really didn’t expect it when I first started thinking. Looking back at it, I don’t know how daft I could be, but I was young, and I knew nothing about style or interior design in general. Thankfully I have learned quite a lot from a few friends who were involved with ASID!
I sat some of my friends down and we began planning out all what I needed to figure out, to be able to successfully furnish my home. I learned quite a bit, including that I wanted a modern style, and I needed to figure out my lighting structure. When I first began talking about this new home, I didn’t even consider lighting because I didn’t think it mattered much. But boy was I wrong. Thankfully my friend is the owner of Allen Roth Hub and he convinced me just how important lighting is. It’s the single biggest factor in a home. Lighting is the first thing that people notice, when they walk into your home. That being said, you need something that will look great, while having a good amount of functionality. I was able to find some chandeliers and outdoor lighting that really lit up my house in a great light, and it really changed the mood of my home! I am so glad that I found out the importance of lighting, or my house wouldn’t be the same!
