What a difference good lighting makes to a space. If you’re renovating or looking to change the style in your home, thinking about the theme, use/functionality and cost first can help you save time and make it more interesting.
For example having brighter bulbs/light in your hallway or smaller landing can immediately create the welcoming illusion of a larger space.
I think that general lighting, task or ambience, sometimes may not need to be large to make a statement, it just has to be beautiful. If you want your piece to have that stand-out effect, consider toning down the colour and decor throughout the room so it can sit beautifully and complement your style.
Here are 4 things to know before choosing the lighting in your home
1. Get Comfy~Move in first to get a feel of every room in your home. It’s a big decision because it plays up the other elements in the room.
2. The Design ~Create the style you want for the room before you buy so you can see how the lighting will fit in there.
3. The Functionality~ It’s a good idea to decide how the light fixture will be used, so the functionality is as important as the design. Make sure it works for your style and it’s use so you don’t end up needing to changing it three months down the line.
4. Trend~There are so many options out there and so it’s worth doing a little research and narrowing it down to brands and style to start with. I hope this helps.
Did you ever find it daunting shopping for light fixtures?
It’s your home style so don’t forget to enjoy the process.
