tvbacklightLighting in a basement living space is one of the biggest design considerations when remodeling or finishing a basement.  Forget about those old large, rectangular fluorescent lights, modern and stylish lighting is a better way to light up your basement.

A quick and relatively simple way to obtain a lot of light in the basement space is to use backlighting.  In the image to the right, the large screen television is back-lit to create a very light and airy feel to the basement living area.

Another way to achieve optimal lighting in a basement space is to have the perimeter recessed lighting shine down the wall.  By illuminating the light colored wall, the space naturally appears  to be lighter.
