As we approach early spring, you may have noticed that the sun is setting a little bit later each day. However, dealing with the cold and darkness during the last of the winter months can still be a challenge. Lighting plays a key role in making a room or space feel, warm, welcoming and personal. Below are some tips on how you can enhance your space with different types of lighting.

 

Chandeliers

Looking to elevate a space in your home? Chandeliers will bring that sparkle and elegance to any room! When choosing the right chandelier, we like to make sure that you have at least 7.5 feet of overhead clearance. Chandeliers are primarily found in bedrooms, foyers, living rooms, and dining rooms. These are a designers staple when dealing with large rooms with tall ceilings to draw the client’s visual interest up in space.

 

 

Flush Mount

Want to bring that same elegance to your home, but your ceilings are a bit lower? Opt for a flush mount chandelier. This type of light is available in many different styles and distributes light evenly across a room. These are ideal in kitchens, bathrooms, and hallways. This light fixture does not hang down as low as your traditional chandelier, it allows a smaller room to feel more spacious while drawing visual interest upward.

 

 

Sconces

Sconces come in many different styles and are great for various areas of your home by generating and distributing indirect light. Many designers use them in bathrooms alongside a vanity mirror, above artwork, stairways, and certain task lighting areas. Many sconces are powered with a dimmer switch to change the mood of a space and save on power.

 

 

Pendants

Pendants are a great way to highlight certain areas like kitchen islands, reading nooks, dining tables, your personal office space and other task areas. Generally pendant lights will be placed as a singular light or in groups of twos and threes depending on the length of the area being targeted.

 

 

Recessed

If you are looking to light up your space with a clean modern look while enhancing all of your finishes in your space, recessed lighting is the way to go. Recessed lighting fixtures are embedded into the ceiling, which saves valuable space compared to traditional hanging or wall-mounted light fixtures.
