Illuminated Pallet Bed

Illuminated Pallet Beds

Have you ever noticed how bright and sunny weather somehow inspires an upbeat disposition? In contrast, we seem a little less motivated on rainy and dull winter days. That’s because our bodies respond to the psychological effects of lighting, and it often changes our moods.

Mood lighting can enhance the character of any room, especially when equipped with a dimmer for flexibility.
