Everybody dreams of decorating their homes in the best possible way and giving their living space the best look ever. While it does sound like a big task, it is not really a big deal decorating your living space if you even have the slightest idea of what you’re planning to do with your decor. The best way to go about decorating your space or planning the lighting layout of your home is to visualise which space would need how much illumination and which lighting design would fit the best.
While layered lighting is the best way to go about decorating your space, people have been coming up with customised versions of their lighting layouts by giving importance to either ambient lighting or task lighting as that particular space requires. And that could be one of the ways you could go ahead with lighting your living space too. Not every space will require a lot of ambient lighting or task lighting or accent lighting, for that matter, and you can surely improvise with all the available lighting options and elements.
While you can improvise a lot of things, some you really can’t. Like going with a statement lighting fixture is a must if you really need your decor to flaunt that style and grace to leave everybody impressed. Larger-than-life lighting fixtures are trending in the global design space, and we would suggest you go for the same if you can afford the space. There’s nothing better than making a bold statement with your lighting designs. Now, one major misconception about statement lighting is that it can only be an overhead lighting design like a chandelier, pendant light or ceiling light. But in reality, any lighting design that sets the tone of your place and is large enough to steal everybody’s attention can be a perfect statement lighting design.
If you’re looking to enhance the ambience of your space, then consider going with any kind of lamp, as they are practically the best lighting fixtures to accentuate the aura of your space. Nothing can exude warmth quite like a lamp, and they come with their own sets of advantages with their own distinct flairs. Table lamps can be used as effective and efficient secondary lighting designs while slightly lending to the functionality of the space too. Floor lamps, on the other hand, can beautifully complement your seating space or fit right into a corner, enhancing the functionality of the space. Wall lights or wall lamps can also infuse some much-needed warmth into your living space.
Glamourising your space really requires you to focus on the design styles, elements and textures you’ll be choosing for your space. Make your mind up about the design language or the overall theme of your space. While you could choose any of the styles, modern and contemporary are the ones that are trending in the space, and you’ll find an array of designs to adorn your space. When it comes to choosing the right elements, remember that glass and crystal always stand out from the crowd. Metal is an elegant choice, too, but it might need a little maintenance over time.
