Whether you want to improve the lighting of a specific area in your home or you are interested in changing your current light fixtures. The truth is lighting is extremely important in a home, it brightens the space while adding personality and style. However, it is quite difficult to find light fixtures that simply work in every room. Here are our favorite charming light fixtures that simply work.
The notion of using layered lighting comes from the idea that you need one or more light fixtures to brighten up the space. This idea is quite useful when you are decorating a large space such as the living room or even a family room. Add ambient lighting and pair them with a chandelier or even smaller ceiling lights to bring as much lighting to the area as possible.
Matching light fixtures are one of the best ways to bring light to a smaller space such as your hallway. The idea is to add matching lighting fixtures for a cohesive look that brightens the space while providing a welcoming effect.
Clear lights don’t have a specific place that they should be placed in because of how well they work in all areas of the home. We specifically love having clear lights as part of the kitchen, it brightens the space without adding any color or pattern. Which in return will not disrupt your current décor.
A metal finish is always a good idea when you want to display a modern touch that does not take away from the décor. Consider having a bold pendant lighting piece as the main emphasis of a room, this works well in a dining room or even in a sunroom.
Edgy and Cool
Have you ever considered having an edgy light fixture, but haven’t figured out where to place it or how to decorate around it? If so the key is utilizing a dark colored light pendant and having dark hues as part of your décor. The darker bits paired with the edgy pendant will deliver a sultry, cool effect that will ooze classic charm.
When in doubt, add a feminine touch. A feminine touch is always a good idea when the concept is to keep the space clean and crisp. It adds that layer of beauty while still being extremely simple and cohesive. Add scones and a chandelier to work in two different light fixtures that come together seamlessly.
Go Big or Go Home
For an oversized feel that does not take away from your space or décor consider using an oversized flush mount that is encrusted with crystals. The crystals bring extra lighting while the mount is simple and sits beautifully on your ceiling. If you have a lower ceiling this is great as your ceiling will not feel smaller or overly crowded.
When we think about chandeliers our first thoughts typically are “bulky, crystal light fixture.” However, they actually come in multiple different sizes, colors, and styles which is great! Instead of having a large chandelier, add in a mini one with all the bells and whistles. Doing so removes the heaviness from a traditional chandelier while still having that signature look.
We love the idea of using a light fixture that is uniquely created and displayed in the dining room. The dining room doesn’t get as much credit as it should, it is one of those spaces that families tend to spend a little more time in. Therefore, you want to create a space that reflects the families personal style. Pair your unique light with simple touches to allow it to make a big statement.
Do not forget about sconces. Even though they may seem small they can make a huge impact when they are placed against a darker or neutral wall. The idea is to bring the wall back to life by reflecting light off of them.
