If you are building your luxury home, it can be quite an exciting and joyful exercise. When you have some ideas that you want incorporated into your home design, you must look for a custom luxury home builder that will be able to work closely with you and provide the solutions you need.
Just as you want the architectural elements and floor plans to be designed in a particular manner, there are certain other aspects like décor and lighting that play a very important role in the overall aesthetic and ambience of your property. The latter is one aspect you should focus on and this planning becomes part of the overall designing phase in your home’s construction.
The right kind of lighting effects and fixtures can add to the opulence of your home. Even luxury homes that are designed on minimalistic, contemporary and modernistic architectural styling can significantly benefit from well-planned lighting installations. Here are 4 luxury home lighting tips that will help you create a stunning look in the indoor and outdoor areas of your home:
#1 Dress your ceiling
The one way to create a dramatic look in any indoor space is to dress your ceiling. If you have a classic-styled home, you can add luxury lighting with a touch of vintage design chandeliers. You will find some remarkable chandeliers made from crystal droplets and scones that create an impressive lighting display in your dining or living room areas. You can add to the high-end luxurious feel of your home by installing ornate and elegant pieces. If you have a modern or contemporary style home, look for chandeliers made of crystal and metals such as titanium, steel and chrome that have a more stark and sleek look.
#2 The glamour element
You can create lavish and luxurious living spaces by complementing your soft, imported plush rugs and carpets and luxury furnishings with sleek, polished chrome and crystal shades. These throw shimmering light across your room. Depending on the dimensions of the room, you can add more than one fixture in this styling. If you prefer more traditional light fixtures, you can opt for similar light fixtures but in antique or brass finishes. Continue this luxury lighting concept into the indoor dining and alfresco spaces as well. This will lend continuity and a seamless look to the space.
#3 Layering light
When you are discerning about the quality of all the materials and features used and installed in your home, the look will be complete only when you have the right kind of luxury lighting in all spaces of your home. You can add glamorous and stylish wall lights where you want soft ambient lighting. Incorporate recessed, task, under counter, floor and spot lighting in the right proportion in all the rooms; this will add to the luxurious look of your décor.
#4 Outdoor luxury lighting
Your individual preferences and style is reflected not just in the indoor areas of your home, but in the outdoor spaces as well. This makes it worthwhile to use well-planned, high-grade lighting elements in your gardens, yards and alfresco areas. You can add a very grand and polished look with twin lantern style lamp posts and boundary wall-post lights.
The same concept can be carried through in the outdoor kitchen, fireplace and fire pit nooks, patios, balconies and deck spaces. Choose lights that are specially designed for the outdoors as they are made with more resilient and weather-resistant materials and finishes.
Luxury lighting, when planned well, can define any room in your home and add the glamour quotient to the luxurious interior and exterior spaces of your home.
