How to Choose the Right Lighting


This cluster of pendant lights offer visual appeal and unique flair.

Lighting fixtures are a key element in the complete design of a room. They can serve as striking focal points or complimentary details that really pull the look of an entire room together. It is important to know all your lighting options so you can make the right choice for your tastes, needs, budget, and overall look you want to achieve. To learn more about different lighting options you can choose, read on.


If you have a large space and want to make a statement, this is an excellent lighting option. These attention grabbing and show stopping pieces can make any room elegant and opulent. While large chandeliers are the most commonly thought of, they come in a variety of styles and sizes and can add subtle sophistication to smaller rooms when they are the right size to suit it.

Pendant Lighting

These smaller hanging lights can serve both decorative and practical purposes. They can serve as direct lighting over a table or kitchen island. These lights are designed to attract attention and when utilized in small clusters are an undeniable visual statement.

Wall Sconces

These type of lights provide decorative and stylish task lighting in high use areas, like bathrooms or hallways. They are excellent for showing off pieces of art or illuminating hallway mirrors. When ornately designed, wall sconces can even be a work of art on their own.

Recessed Lighting

While lighting can be utilized as a focal point or point of visible interest, sometimes you don’t want your light fixtures to attract attention to themselves. This can be ideal for a minimal approach that appears modern and not over designed. This lighting is installed into the ceiling so it provides ample light without disturbing the clean lines of your home’s architecture. It makes for useful task lighting and will appease those who truly believe that “less is more.”
