When there is talk about luxury interiors, lighting is one aspect that is always taken into account. Even the most stunning interior spaces can look dull and drab without the right kind of lighting effects. Here are some lighting concepts to make your custom designed luxury home even more attractive:
- One of the best places to start is to question what the function of every fitting is. If it doesn’t have any specific task, its best to delete if from the lighting scheme
- Check whether all the fittings and fixtures are in the right position
- Do not randomly scatter fittings across a room for general infill as these only end up lighting the flooring, and they tend to close the space down
- The lighting in your house should be layered and this means, it should have the right balance of up-lighting, down-lighting, recessed as well as task lighting for ceilings
Types of light fittings
Just as it’s important to use all these types of lighting to achieve the right effect; it’s equally important to use the right fixtures and fittings. Choose these with care and ensure that all the fixtures in a single room have a cohesive look and feel. The different types of fittings you can use are:
Adding a chandelier to a room is one of the best ways to create a special atmosphere. They look classic and add to the allure of any type of décor. Chandeliers can be as elaborate or simplistic as you would like them to be. Those made of high quality crystal look just like pieces of jewelry and create drama in the space.
When you are choosing a chandelier, look for one that will be proportionate to the size of the room it is going to be fitted in. You can use larger chandeliers in the living room and smaller ones for focused lighting in dining room and kitchen spaces.
Most luxury homes have some form of art elements. These could be in the form of paintings or sculptures and decorative pieces. It’s possible to create a stunning effect in a room by adding the right kind of art lighting. You can use:
- Broad-based light source
- Multi-angled lighting
- Mantle lights
- Spot lights
- Track lights
- Diffused lighting
- Tiered bulb holders
Today, pendant lights are used extensively in luxury homes and they do really have a timeless appeal. Blown glass pendant lamps as well as more elaborate ones that hang from metal rods or cords can be used to create a special effect. Many homes now sport multiple pendant lamps hanging over kitchen islands, living room coffee tables as well as dining spaces.
These are a necessary addition to most luxury homes and today, you will find fantastic designs and stunning floor lamp shapes and styling. These could range from more classic and traditional wooden bases to stylistic and sleek metal bases that are perfect for modern-styled homes.
They throw diffused light that adds a very distinctive layer to the lighting in a room. If you have a vast wall space, you can opt for dramatic arching lamps and these add dimension to the décor in a home theatre room or living room.
