Hide CaptionShow CaptionEvery room in the home requires two forms of lighting: task and ambient. Carefully select the right brightness level for tasks such as reading, sewing or dining in the master bedroom.
But don't forget the ambiance! Remember, there is a tad of romance to this whole thing (we hope). Strategically placed canister lights that shine up from the floor and other ambient light sources can add a lot of attitude. And having several light choices allows you to create a wide variety of lighting effects at different times, making the room versatile for your many needs.
