How to choose the correct lighting for your home

Down lights, lampshades and chandeliers to name a few – the choice of lighting is endless! Here we discuss how to choose the correct lighting for your home.

How do you know which lighting is right for your home?

The lighting you choose can completely change the mood of the room. However, it isn’t the first thing we think of when decorating.

Good lighting sets the tone and can make your house a home.

Lights don’t just come from the ceiling either! There are floor lamps, under bench lighting, feature lamps…

With so much to think about, how do you make sure your lights are right?

  • Don’t be afraid to use a combination of lighting styles in one room.
  • Choose lights that suit the size and mood of your room; lighting needs t be adequate to serve its purpose so don’t make it too small.
  • Bulbs that throw warm light will be more homely and inviting than bright white bulbs, they can also be more flattering in big and small rooms.
  • Get creative; chandeliers aren’t just for dining rooms, they can look fabulous in a kitchen or a bedroom!
  • Be mindful of ceiling height, if you have high ceilings then lights that hang lower can add depth and character to your room.
  • Don’t overdo it on the down lights. If building or renovating, take your electricians advice when it comes to how many down lights you need. They can be deceiving as they are so small you can underestimate the amount of light they can throw.
  • Consider dimmers in rooms like living rooms and bedrooms, so you can change the lighting depending on the mood or occasion.

Lighting options are available in a variety of shapes, sizes, styles and budgets.

By thinking about your lights in each individual room before you make your decision will ensure that your choices light up the room, figuratively and literally!
