Interior designer shares thoughts on lighting

on Monday,May 30,2011 17:05


Sandra Vish, who recently started her own company to help people choose the proper interior design programs for themselves, shared her insight about how lighting can make or break a room.

Vish explained that there is a series of different lighting fixtures including chandeliers, and designs of table and floor lamps. Each can create a distinct feel for the space, and highlight certain aspects of a room. For example, if there is a piece of artwork that a person wants guests to focus on, they can put a wall sconce on top, and shine light on the item.

"Lighting appeals to every class of people because everybody has to use lighting," said Vish. "The variety of our products allows people to customize their lighting based on the room and personal style."

Individuals who are interested in interior design may want to know what the job outlook will be like when they graduate from their design degree programs. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of professionals in the field are expected to increase by 19 percent between 2008 and 2018.
