2.Consider the Direction of Lighting Arrangement
For updating the size of a room visually, you must check if the light reflected from the ceiling, walls and floor are in proper direction.LED lights are already featured with high lumen output, but to bring out the optimum brightness in a small space, you must focus on using light from the right direction. An ideal way for small space lighting is recessed lighting. LED panels and spotlights can be used in the ceiling light fixtures to create the right kind of recessed lighting.
3. Focus on using Ceiling Lights
A great way to visually extend the small area of a room is directing the light to the ceiling with contemporary track lighting together with floor lamps and wall lights. Paint your ceiling white and use LED light with high lumen output in the ceiling fixtures to make the room seem spacious.
However, you must avoid placing ceiling lights across the middle line of the room. This kind of lighting arrangement can make a space long but narrow. The ideal way to place the ceiling lights is in a straight line across the corner of your ceiling.
So, if you are planning to renovate the interior decoration scheme of your room, to make it appear bigger; you must choose the right kind of LED lights and fixtures to design your space.
