Lighting is important for small spaces and can serve different purposes. Sinead Kelly of Dulux Magazine says there are four basic types:
• General lighting fills a space with overall illumination and includes overhead lights. This type is good for everyday tasks.
• Accent or feature lighting, such as up lights, is directed at a specific area.
• Task lighting is illumination for performing a job such as reading or cooking. This type of lighting usually sits over something, like a desk lamp.
• Decorative lighting provides decoration and architectural interest, such as chandeliers or strobe lights.
Anderson suggests up lights to add a subtle amount of light to a room.
Chinese rice paper lights are becoming more popular and can be found in the home décor sections of discount stores.
