Light It Up: How to Choose The Right Lighting Fixture

The light plays into the mood of a room with just a switch of a button. Casting shadows and highlighting the right areas, choosing the right lighting fixture is all about the right mix of design and function.

Here are a few tips on how to decide to get the right light:

1. Balancing Act

Light fixtures must be included in the design of the room. Whether to dress up or dress down an area, choose pieces that complement the style of the space. Take into consideration the colour, shape, size and style of the fixture with the rest of your area before deciding.

2. Focal Point Light

Why not centre your space around a light fixture? Build your space from top to bottom! They make great focal points and feature lights can even replace artwork. Plus, your guests will never stop raving about how amazing your feature light is.

3. Ultimate Sophistication

Feature lights that are grand in scale ultimately draw the eye to the room. Nothing says glam than a chandelier. Whether decked out in crystals or with winding chrome arms, chandeliers can come in many styles to suit your space.

4. Pretty Pendant Lights

In a smaller space, pendant lights also draw attention to a room as they are more on eye level. Individually, it can illuminate a direct space and when together can create a design statement.

5. Love Lamps

Lamps can also add a portable lighting element into a space. They can serve as accessories whether on the floor or in side tables and consoles. Mix and match different prints, shapes and sizes to complete your living space.
