Ambient lighting can be accomplished be placing small halogen bulbs at the back of the painting or decoration pieces housed in their cabinet sections. The textures chosen for this should be as follows. The wall should be painted with a very smooth finish emulsion, wallpapers should be avoided here, and the decoration pieces with their shelves should be dull and matted. They should not be shinny and glittery. Basically their security level should be kept in check.
Brackets complement and highlight a shelf, defining its look and feel, and adding to the character of the room. You can find them in materials as diverse as classic wrought iron, modern sleek chrome, warm and inviting wood and more. Shelf brackets should reflect their surroundings. Modern chrome brackets fit better holding up glass shelves in a bathroom, but cast iron Victorian brackets will work better in a foyer or formal dining room.
