Lighting can make a real difference to your home. It can transform a dull room into an atmospheric space, add a serene feel in the bedroom and save you from getting carried away with the blusher in the bathroom. Here’s a few tips to getting the best from your lighting at home…
In the living room, stick to symmetry and the room will look balanced. Instead of one floor lamp, buy two and place them on either side of a sofa, highlighting the areas where most of the activity takes place.
In the kitchen, if you have an island or a specific area where you prepare and serve the food, highlight this space by hanging up a group of pendant lights above it. The more colourful, the more of a design statement they will make. This treatment works best in houses with tall ceilings – be careful not to hang them too low as you don’t want to bump your head!
Looking to glam up your hallway? Then opt for a something unique and individual. This six light chandelier will make a bold statement and will be the first and last thing your guests see.
The bedroom is the most personal room so be as subtle or as adventurous as you choose depending on the mood you are trying to create. Try this wall light made using Egyptian lead crystal, which appear like tear drops. Hung on either side of the bed they are a dazzling way to accessorize your bedroom and provide convenient reading light.
Don’t forget the detail on the landing walls – try mounting wall sconces on either side of a mirror to light the way and increase the space.
