Lighting is easily one of the most important parts of your home. Lighting can make or break a space. Picking out light fixtures is one of my favorite tasks when designing a space because the right light fixture can bring the space to completion. I have a couple of tips for you in certain situations.
1. If you don’t have a lot of natural light in your home, the task of finding the right light fixture is even more important for you. Opt for larger light fixtures that emit lots of light, clear glass globes work great for this.
2. If you have a breakfast nook in or near your kitchen, this space is a perfect opportunity to add more light. For square and rectangle tables look for light fixtures to compliment that shape, find lights with cleaner and harder lines. For circular tables, the possibilities are a bit more vast. You could chose a fun and funky sputnik chandelier or a beautiful sphere chandelier to compliment the table shape.
3. If you’re have an open kitchen island, pendant lights are your friends! Try two large pendants or three to four small pendants to cover the space of the island. Choosing the right amount of lights is important when lighting your island as you do not want to have this space unevenly lit.
4. Your bedroom deserves lots of light too! I absolutely love having natural light in my bedroom. There is just something about waking up to sunlight that makes me oh so happy. So, opt for sheer curtains or none at all if you can get away with it! Bedside scones are also one of my favorite bedroom light sources. Scones not only help you read your book at night but they can add some playfulness to your space! Chose your scones correctly and they will feel more like a decor item than a utility.
I hope that these few tips will help you bring more light into your home!
