Let There Be Light (From Above)

Ceilings have a very high potential when it comes to creating effects with lighting. You need to step up and go beyond your functional downlights and consider statement chandeliers to create mesmerizing focal points in your space. There are various styles available, ranging from classic crystal to modern designs. Your living room or dining area can get a royal look with properly placed chandeliers. Classic crystal chandeliers with sparkling strings are more suited for traditional settings, while metallic chandeliers with geometric shapes give a modern look and are ideal for open-plan spaces. 

You can also go for recessed lighting to get a modern touch. LED strip lights along the ceiling edges proved a soft glow. You can adjust color temperatures to go along with the different vibes of different rooms. Warm temperatures around 2700 Kelvin are ideal for bedrooms and living areas, whereas the cool temperatures around 4000 Kelvin are great for kitchen and workspaces that require focus and alertness.

Flair of the Floor Lamps

A nicely placed table lamp is perfect to light up your reading corner, artwork, or any other dimly lit area. It is a great fixture for creating focal points. Floor lamps come in great styles and designs. A clean-lined metal base and simple fabric shades can give focused lighting without overwhelming the space. These minimalist and sleek designs work well for modern aesthetics. Then, we have more ornate traditional designs that channel mid-century vibes. For example, the tripod floor lamps with wooden or metal bases and a drum shade can add vintage charm to your living room & bedrooms. However, if you are a fan of rugged aesthetics, you can choose industrial floor lamps. The cherry on top will be getting these lamps with dimmable features that can help you customize the light to your mood and occasion.

Spotlight on the Drama

Create dramatic focal points with spotlights. They are perfect for drawing attention to certain elements in your space, such as your artwork, trophies, and architectural features of your house. If you want a versatile spotlight, go for LED spotlights. These come in a variety of beam angles. A narrow beam spotlight is great for creating drama by highlighting the features of your home and enhancing their visual appeal. On the other hand, a wider beam LED spotlight has the ability to wash an entire wall with light and create a striking effect. This is greatly useful to add depth in areas like hallways or to showcase a textured wall. By using the right spotlights, you can transform your plain walls into eye-catching focal points.

Light Up Your Walls

Wall lights are yet another great fixture to create visual aesthetics and dimension in any space. For example, placing wall sconces on either side of a fireplace or artwork can lend it a symmetrical and balanced look. Then, to create a subtle halo effect, you can use LED light strips behind your shelves or artwork. It will make your prized possessions truly stand out. If you want a modern look, you can install wall-mounted sconces or even go for a track lighting system that will help you position your spotlights exactly where you want them. Sconces can be used to light up mirrors in the bathroom or bedroom and create a warm, glowy focal point. Adjustable sconces are also available to help you get inviting lights in your hallway and showcase your artwork just like they do in galleries. Track lighting with directional spotlights can be used in open-plan areas to define different zones like reading areas, conversation areas, and more.

The Magic of Table Lamps

Your side tables are kind of incomplete without the magical lighting of table lamps. They not only provide perfect illumination for reading or working but also add personality to your room. It makes them perfect to create mesmerizing focal points. However, you need to be careful with the size proportions of the table lamps and the space you wish to install them in. A large table lamp on a small table overpowers the space. Similarly, a small table lamp on a large table makes the lamp go unnoticed. The lampshade and lamp base also need to be in the right proportion. There are various styles to suit your tastes. For example, table lamps with a ceramic base and fabric shades can give a traditional look to your living room or bedroom. On the other hand, a metallic base table lamp adds to the modern feel, especially when it is paired with a cela-lined shade. You can experiment with the shades and patterns to add color or personality to your space. The material of lamp shades is also important as different shades give different lighting. For example, fabric shaders are known for diffusing light and giving a softer ambiance, while parchment shades allow more light to pass through and thus provide brighter illumination.


Bask in the Chandelier's Glow

Not just for grand foyers and dining rooms, chandelier lights are now also being used in bedrooms, bathrooms or home offices. Yes, say hi to the miniature chandeliers that add a royal look to the rooms and are perfect for creating captivating focal points.

Your miniature chandelier should be in proportion to your room since a big chandelier can look very insignificant in a big room, and a big chandelier for a small room is, again, a waste of money. So, get the right size that fits your space.

For smaller spaces, the sparking effect needs to be subtle. So you need to get chandeliers with a few cascading crystal strands to have just the right amount of sparkle.  Talking about the styles, rustic chandeliers made from wrought iron or wood are great if you have natural materials or earthy tones in your decor. They blend well with rustic or farmhouse decor.  Chandeliers are great for creating focal points that have the ability to tie all the design elements of a room together, Modern designs like a sputnik chandelier with splayed arms can bring mid-century feel to your bathroom or office space. They usually have sleek lines and innovative design patterns. Not only, they provide excellent lighting but also serve as great statement pieces that catch everyone's attention.
