When it comes to interior design, lighting tends to be relatively neglected. Think about it – when you step into a property, the statement design pieces tend to be furniture, wall art, coffee tables, or bookshelves. It’s rarely the lighting. But lighting doesn’t simply have to serve as a practical and functional part of any room. It can tie into your overall aesthetic and design too! So, here are a couple of different lighting options that you might want to consider incorporating into your personal space!
If you’re looking to provide your rooms with a small boost of light in the evenings, lamps are the way to go. They won’t completely flood your room with light but are likely to give a nice glow that is sufficient to help you get by in your home without bumping into things and knocking things over. There are seemingly endless varieties available, and you should consider getting more than one. Consider the different spaces you have in your home and what boxes you need your designer lamps to tick. If you like to read in bed, a bedside table lamp will be perfect. It will give you sufficient light to prevent you from straining your eyes while reading and can be turned off without you having to leave the comfort of your bed to turn the main light off. For your main living space, you will want a little atmospheric light for while you’re watching the television. A freestanding lamp or tripod lights will meet your needs perfectly.
Every room in your property will have a main source of light. This is often left turned off during the days, but as the sun sets, we become pretty reliant on it in certain areas of the home where lamp light isn’t sufficient. Take the kitchen for example. In this room, you need a bright source of light that will allow you to see exactly what you are doing. Now, pretty much every home has some sort of standard ceiling roses fitted to start with. But if you’re looking for your main source of light to also serve as a feature piece in its given room, you might want to consider some alternative options. No matter the theme of your home, there will be something out there to suit your style down to a tee. For the elegant there are chandeliers. For the more modern there are spotlights. For an authentic retro feel, there are oil style lamps. Take your time to search for the right option and have it installed professionally.
There are, of course, other more specific forms of specialist lighting for the home out there. But these two forms of lighting are ones that anyone can easily focus on and incorporate into their interior decor. So, browse your options and find something that suits your space perfectly!
