One of the best ways to bring a design change to your home is to switch up the lighting. Most homes keep lighting pretty simple, an overhead light in each room, and a few lamps here and there. However, many designers are looking to creative lighting elements as a way to really change the look, feel and atmosphere of a home in an interesting and different way.
Let’s take a look at some of the options that could be considered.
Sconces can be the perfect addition to the bedroom as a creative lighting element. Instead of the conventional set up of a few side tables with lamps taking up the majority of space on them, why not consider moving the lighting to the walls?
Sconces can be installed into the walls on either side of the headboard in the bedroom in order to not only provide some visually pleasing lighting elements but also provide the perfect amount of soft lighting into the room. This type of lighting also comes in a variety of styles, so if your room has a modern or romantic feel you should be able to find a style that works.
Pendant lights are a natural addition to any kitchen. This is especially true for those that have a breakfast bar area of the kitchen that have stools next to the counter top.
The pendant lights are going to be able to provide a perfect amount of lighting to that specific area of the kitchen and can also bring a lot of colour into the area as well. Pendant lights come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so if you have a white kitchen, why not add in a bit of shape and colour with the pendant lighting.
In most dining areas there is always going to be some kind of overhead lighting right over the table. Rather than be stuck with a conventional lighting scheme, why not bring in a true statement piece like a chandelier?
A chandelier does not have to be something stuffy and fancy, instead you can find one that really makes a statement and brings in your own aesthetic and home decor personality. Chandeliers now are produced in a variety of materials, shapes and colours.
Enjoy the New Lighting Scheme
By changing any of your conventional lighting in your home to any of these three creative lighting elements, you can be sure that your home will have a totally different feel at the end of the redesign.
The other benefit to changing a home lighting scheme is that it is an affordable way to make a real difference in the atmosphere of a home.
Replacing a few lights is not going to be as dramatic or costly as buying new furniture or painting the walls, so its a great option to consider.
