What Houzz contributors are saying:
Light personal features in your home. Accent lighting is all about picking out those features that matter to you. Great accent lighting can be almost hidden in full view, making your eye focus on the feature brought to life by the light. LED offers great opportunities for accent lighting with remarkably small in-wall, uplight, downlight and linear fittings available for the tightest of spaces.
Cool lighting. Any shelving will be elevated with some inset LED spotlights or strip lighting. Floating box shelves like these are particularly well-suited for lighting, as the boxes appear to glow, creating a wonderful atmosphere at night. Although the primary function may be to highlight ornaments and pictures, it also adds an extra layer of lighting to the whole room, so a dimmer could be a good idea, too. You could even use shelves with built-in lighting designed for kitchens.
