Light

This is a general rule and for most people light is vital to the ambience of any room. When you’re trying to stay green as well, creating as much light as you can allows you to save on electricity. Change all the lightbulbs to LEDs first of all as these are much more energy efficient. They transfer almost all of their energy to light rather than losing it in heat. They are also much more durable so will last longer and save a lot of money. There are also 100% recyclable. Reduce energy waste as well, by keeping lights and electrical or electronic appliances switched off when you aren’t using them.

With color schemes, if you stick to white and lighter options, you will help to scatter light around the room. Point light, both natural and artificial at focal features in the room if you want to show off a particularly attractive piece of artwork or architecture.
