How to choose feature lighting
Deciding the size of your feature lights can be a little tricky. If the light is too big it can appear overpowering. While a light that is too small can become lost, losing its visual and decorative impact in the room.
Each of our modern feature lights can be customised to suit your space. Antique feature lights are slightly more difficult in this sense. If the light is a hanging one, the length of its flex cable can be altered. However, the size of the actual antique fitting cannot be changed in size.
Book a lighting consultation with one of our designers who can help you choose the right sized feature light fitting for you.
To help choose the correct feature light for your home or commercial space, we recommend having a rough idea of where your feature light may be placed in the early stage of planning. This will ensure you have enough fixing points and electrical points to install a stunning feature lighting piece.
The location of your light will also help to decide which type of feature light you choose. In narrow spaces, such as a stairwell, a feature consisting of pendants in a staggered formation may be a practical addition that does not take up walking space and efficiently lights the space.
For a dining table, the light is protected by the table and is less likely to be bumped into, therefore a decorative dish cluster may be the ideal feature light.
Our collections include both modern and antique feature light ideas. The age of your commercial or residential property can help you determine the period of lighting you choose.
A period home looks fantastic with an antique or vintage feature light, to mirror the style of the interior. However, it is not unheard of for a period home to include a stunning modern feature light as an interesting and juxtaposing focal point.
Modern lighting offers greater flexibility, with the option to customise glass type, metal finish and flex cable colour. You can create a light that works completely with your interior design.
