Lighting is an essential component of Interior Design. Proper use of lighting fixtures in Interiors can convert a normal bedroom into a soothing environment. It is quite an art to use different techniques of light and its glare inside a building.

  2. Artificial Light

Let’s start our conversation with discussing about how to use sunlight properly in interiors. Sunlight is not only the only natural source for light but also one of most strong sources.
