Lighting is a fun and creative way to express your style and also enhance the ambiance of room. Here are some of CHD’s favorite tips to help you select lighting that best accommodates your space.
Scale is Crucial: Selecting lighting that fits your space is of utmost importance. A common mistake is picking a light fixture that is too small for the required space. For example, tall ceilings and the area above large dining tables require larger chandeliers. For kitchen islands, you have the option of using a single chandelier or multiple pendants.
Make a Statement With Your Lighting: The lighting you select should emphasize the ambiance of your room. If you want a low country feel without your home seeming too beachy, try a chic oyster shell or driftwood chandelier with modern lines to evoke a classy and updated scheme.
Unique Lighting Can Add Versatility to Your Room: Lighting is an easy and bold way to add some dimension to your room by dressing it up or down. If you want to dress up your casual space, you can utilize crystal, metal or mirrored lighting. If you have a more casual or traditional space, a more contemporary chandelier or lamp can update your room while also providing you an eclectic, custom look.
Remember to Consider the Function of your Lighting: Consider the purpose of your lighting and the amount of lighting required, before making your lighting selections. For a nursery, you may want to add dimming options to your lighting. For your study, dining area, or kitchen, pick lighting options that will accommodate your work and dining space. You always want to ensure you have enough lighting in any given space, so don’t skimp on the appropriate amount of lighting!
