A lot of important work is done in the kitchen, so remember to flood the room with plenty of light pointing down onto the work surfaces. Your ceiling lights can be accompanied by hanging pendant lights and under-cabinet lighting. While you want to make sure your lights are all serving their functional purpose, you can also add style to your kitchen by choosing fixtures that go great with your theme. For example, industrial-type lighting can add character to a modern kitchen, and a pretty gold chandelier can add a soft touch to your traditional kitchen.
Add a bit of mood to your eating area by installing dimmers to your lights. A dining room is a great place to hang an elegant or striking chandelier, but consider other sources of lighting to fill up shadowy corners.
You'll probably want overhead lights in your living room. A reading lamp on the floor or on an end table may also be convenient if you do a lot of reading there. Think function + style when choosing lamps. Make sure they are the correct brightness for the task, but also choose a style, color, and texture that complements the rest of your room. There's a big difference between a sculptural desk lamp with a multi-colored shade, and a simple black wall sconce with a white globe bulb.
Go for relaxation with soft lighting in your bedroom. Make it simple to turn lights on and off by placing lamps on the wall next to your bed or on your nightstand.
Avoid putting lights above the bathroom mirror and pointed downward. This creates unflattering shadows on your face. Instead, place task lights on the sides of your bathroom mirror in addition to the ceiling lights, which provide the ambient light in the room. Want a luxurious, spa-like feel in your bathroom? Hang a shiny chandelier above your tub area.
Brighten up the entryway with warm, welcoming lights. Pendants and wall sconces add cheeriness to this area. If you have a higher ceiling in your entryway, you may want to hang a chandelier. Try to make the overall effect inviting rather than overly-dramatic.
Tips About Light Fixture Style
Lighting really does make or break a room's style, so take these tips into consideration as you shop for your home's light fixtures.
- Layer your light. Fill your rooms with lights coming from different places and shining in different directions for a more interesting ambiance.
- Consider natural light. How much natural light is shining through your windows? Rooms facing north may need more lighting than rooms with plenty of direct sunlight.
- Be careful with proportion. If you have a small room, try not to overwhelm it with a large hanging chandelier. Similarly, a large open space may need more light than a few wall sconces can provide.
- Use texture and color to your advantage. Light fixtures can add that certain pop of style that puts a finishing touch on your room. Be thoughtful, wise, and also brave when choosing the color and texture of your fixture.
- Make a statement. With so many light fixture styles on the market, you can choose the one that speaks your personal language.
- Ask a professional for advice. Still stuck on which fixtures will work best in your home? The professional designers at Cathers Home know interior design, and they will gladly point you in the right direction.
