Decoration is really not an easy task. Choosing style, choosing materials, buying furniture, arranging soft furnishings... If you are not careful, you may make mistakes and affect the effect.

Lighting design may be an aspect that is often overlooked. Cold lighting can give people a very cold feeling. In Japanese or Nordic style design, the lighting should choose warm lighting with a color temperature of around 3000K, which will give people a warm and comfortable feeling, but should not be too yellow. As for the lights, try to keep them simple and fresh, without any fancy designs. The design without main lights is a good choice, which can maximize the sense of openness of the space.

In addition, it is not recommended to paint colored walls in locations with poor lighting. .
