Okay, we all know what happened at the Super Bowl last night. And we also know that you can dunk Oreos in the dark. But, over here at HGTV, we aren’t fans of blackouts. In fact, we’re all about lighting.

Here are a few of my favorite lighting concepts from HGTV.com designers:

Soft lighting is very comforting and elegant in any room setting. Designer Troy Beasley created a warm glow in this dining room with wall sconces and light dimmers.

If you want your lighting to be front and center, why not double it in size? Designer Tracy Morris did just that with a double chandelier in this master bath.

Outdoor lighting can be a huge pain to get just right, but Karen of The Art of Doing Stuff made it easy by placing white string lights in globe fixtures to create a lighted pathway.

Lighting is essential in the bedroom – you don’t want to go too bright or dim. Jamie Laubhan-Oliver of D Home chose a crystal chandelier and added a pair of bedside lamps to have the best of both worlds.
