If you survey the market these days, you’ll see that there are too many types of light fixtures available. In fact, the sheer number options sometimes makes it impossible to make the right selection. This is why further we’ll be taking a look at 5 different types of lighting ideas and where in your home interiors they’ll look the best. Let’s take a look:
1. Rope lights
Rope lights are typically used to create a halo around something – to potentially backlight the design element without actual authentic backlighting. However, they look the best when they’re used with more subtlety. In fact, under cabinet lighting in kitchens, living rooms, bedrooms can be carried out with rope lights with the best effects. They also look great as toe-kicks in kitchen islands and legless platform beds.
2. Statement light fixtures
Typically used to make a bold statement and anchor the aesthetic of an entire room, these statement light fixtures are a great addition to modern, minimal, and contemporary interior designs. They’re available in a hug variety of designs and look especially stunning when hung over dining tables, in the center of living rooms, and even bedrooms without ceiling fans.
3. Down lighters
Down lighters have a concentrated halo and are used for accenting. They’re the hardest to use because you actually have to create an entire ambient set-up for them to work. They look best when installed over statement artwork or decoration pieces. They can also be installed in decorative niches or in-built niche-headboards just like the one featured in this image.
4. Ambient LED
It’s important to note that ambient lighting is directly responsible for how you feel in a certain ambiance. If you want to go for a bright, cool atmosphere, go with white lights. If you want something moody and comfortable, go with warm lighting. All of this can be accomplished by choosing the right LED installed within the ceiling.
5. Ceiling light
Ceiling lights are a very interesting way to spruce up your home interiors with style. Once again, there’s a lot of variety that you can choose from. However, do keep in mind that they always look best situated in the center of the ceiling where they can take center stage.
