How are your plans for your basement renovation coming along? Have you made enough progress in designing your new basement that you’re ready to select light fixtures?
Since basements often have minimal natural lighting, selecting just the right lighting fixtures is a critical design decision that should be made very early in the design process.
An excellent article on lighting your basement by Better Homes and Gardens says, “Many rooms benefit from a combination of lighting fixture types. That’s especially true in basements, where daylight can be scarce to nonexistent.” The experienced designer plans ahead to accommodate the space needed for recessed can lights, soffit lighting, pendants, surface mounted lights and concealed lighting.
A basement often includes a wide variety of lighting types to create a balance of light for every activity, from home entertainment to a competitive game of pool. Basements benefit by the installation of indirect lighting on the perimeter, giving the impression of natural lighting.
