Lighting in the home is about much more than just illuminating an area, and when light fixtures are chosen well, they can add a real sense of style to a room. Lighting can be used to create all manner of themes and styles, from coloured lighting in kids’ rooms to luxury ceiling lights, luxury wall lights or bathroom lighting that will impress.
It is the latter which we are going to focus on specifically today, and take a look into some of the ideas which you could choose, that will bring a real sense of luxury into the property.
Luxury lighting doesn’t always have to come at luxury prices either, and there are many luxury lighting stores that offer opulent fixtures and fittings, at very reasonable prices. The key is getting the right fit for each room in the home, and here are just some ideas that can help you to use lighting to create a real sense of luxury.
Lamps are often used for low-level lighting options, to create a cosier mood on an evening or to highlight a certain area of the room. This, however, doesn’t have to be the case and oversized lamps can in fact replaced in-ceiling light choices. If you have low sofas then using a lamp that arches over the seating area is a great way to add some luxury and style to any living room.
A Moroccan lantern is a truly beautiful and decadent lighting choice which not only lights up the room but also provides a real style talking point. These lanterns are created with a detailed design that forces the light through small holes, creating gorgeous patterns on ceilings and walls. Even when the lights aren’t on, this kind of lantern really provides a stylish look to any room.
Luxury Vanity Lights
Lights don’t always have to illuminate an area, sometimes they look good enough as artistic pieces and we are seeing many more of these on the market of late. Functional wall decor is very much in style at the moment at that doesn’t get any better than when it incorporates lighting into the design. Once again you will find that you can bring a piece like this into the home, which screams luxury, without having to pay a huge amount of money.
There is much more to bringing luxury into the home than just focusing on the main lighting unit, and spotlights can be used to great effect as additional lighting. The key to getting this right is down to the placement of the spotlights. Look to brighten up display cabinets and enclaves in the room with spotlights, a great way to add that museum feel to your home. Another great option is foot level spotlights in hallways and passages, which will certainly ensure that your home has a veil of luxury around it.
There are some lighting designs that are considered timeless classics and nothing represents that better than a glorious and ornate chandelier. If you aren’t quite prepared to stretch the budget out for crystal and glass chandeliers, fear not as there are many lower-priced materials that give a very similar effect. There is a reason why grand halls and homes around the world have large chandeliers, and that is because they are one of the most luxurious light fittings which you could possibly consider.
Luxury Sculptured Metal Lighting
As lighting design becomes more and more popular, we are seeing some truly spectacular metal fittings which turn your lighting fixture into a real focal point. These can be used as bedroom lighting or in the living spaces in the home, and they will instantly add luxury to the property. No matter if you have a sleek modern design in your home, or a traditional theme, these lighting sculptures will combine perfectly and elevate the level of luxury which you have in the home.
A final option that we have for you here is the beautiful raindrop lighting fixture. This lighting option uses thin shards of metal, in colours of brass, silver or gold, which hang down like wind chimes around the lighting. The beam of the light bulb is reflected off the metal as it cascades down into the room and gives the most luxurious effect.
These may be tough to clean, but the look which you will get thanks to this gorgeous design is well worth the time that you may have to invest. This particular fixture works best in rooms that feature lots of metal finishes and offer a more classical theme. Prices will vary with this design based on the size of the fixture that you need, and the materials which have been used for the thin strips of metal.
Which will be the lighting feature that you choose to add some luxury to your home?
