    How to Choose the Perfect Bookshelf Lighting

    I love incorporating lights with built-ins, especially bookshelves. There’s just something about that extra detail above the shelving that creates so much interest. When choosing the perfect bookshelf lighting, there are a few things you need to take into account. The first thing to consider is the size of the light. You want to make sure that it is not too large or too small for your bookcase. Secondly, you need to decide where to place the light. Some people prefer to have lights on either side of their bookcase, while others like a single light in the center above. Finally, you need to choose between picture lights and wall sconces. In this article, I’ll go over all of this and show you some of my favorite lights for bookshelves.

I love how it looks in our living room and ties in with all of the other black accents.

    Ceiling fixtures and recessed lighting can always cause some confusion while in the process of building or remodeling a home. The fact of the matter is, many only are thinking about the beauty of a light fixture and not really the function. I get it, I am the same way. Around here, beauty almost always comes before functionality.
