Lighting in your home doesn’t just have to be practical, it can add a fun design element to a space and give it a bit of character.
These are some lighting ideas you might have never of thought of for your home before, but you might want to consider them now.
Coloured lighting is certainly not for the faint hearted, but it’s a bold look that can look beautiful in the home. It gives you the ability to run wild with your imagination, and you can stick to one colour used as an accent light, or a selection of colours for a really eye-catching effect.
Where you place your coloured lighting is completely up to you, but some ideas include under the trim of a kitchen island to make it truly stand out, used as a runner in hallways or as a backlight for your television.
Keep the lighting fixture itself really simple and make a statement with a vintage-looking bulb, this is a great trend that goes well with an industrial style interior. Plus, it’s something really easy to change if you do want to go in a different direction for your interiors.
Strip lighting is a combination of functional and decorative, adding light to areas like under kitchen cabinets so you can see the worktop easily, and giving your kitchen a new design factor when they’re lit up too. The only thing is they can sometimes be fiddly to install, but with the addition of an LED Strip Aluminium Profile the job is made a little easier, the finish more professional, and the strip lights are better protected too.
Chandeliers don’t have to be really ornate, hard to clean light fixtures, instead choose a fun and quirky design that becomes a design feature in a room. The most important thing to consider is the size of the room, and pick a chandelier in accordance with that. You don’t want it to overwhelm the space, and if it’s a big room you don’t want the room to swallow it up. Thankfully there are so many fun designs on the market these days, and you’re going to find a style that suits the decor in your home perfectly.
String lighting is a great option that’s not permanent so you can play around with the placement of the lights as well as taking them away when you want to something new. They’re great for highlight specific areas of the home, creating ambient lighting, or a fun design feature when you fill vases with them.
With a little imagination you can create a fun and eye-catching design element in your home with the lighting you choose.
Until next time.
