Dimmable light is a simple but effective idea. Change the mood of a room, from energised to relaxed, at the turn of a switch. Being able to do that by remote control used to be super expensive, but the beauty of the TRÅDFRI smart lighting range is that it’s affordable and easy to use – just swap to TRÅDFRI bulbs and use the remote to control them!
Treat lighting like a piece of art – consider how you hang it. The KNAPPA light is an IKEA favourite. It’s graphic outline is an eye-catcher but we hadn’t seen it used as the star of the room until we visited Juli and Patrik in Hungary. They’d hung theirs low above the dining table, with a bare wall as a backdrop. It brought simplicity and drama to the space.
"Use your lights to direct how people interact with your space. A floor lamp makes a corner a cosy place to read while guests will lean into a cluster of tables when lit by low-hanging light."
