How to choose a style of lighting?
Material can greatly influence the overall style of your lighting. For example, polished chrome and stainless steel offer a contemporary look, while antique brass and bronze give a more traditional feel. Glass fixtures create a sense of elegance, while rattan shades add a touch of rustic charm. Thinking carefully about the materials you choose for your lighting will enhance the design of your space.
Shape can be used to complement your space. Round & globe lights provide a diffused glow, which is ideal if you are looking to create a cosy atmosphere. While liner and bar lights offer direct illumination, which is perfect over kitchen islands and dining tables. When choosing a style of lighting, consider how shape can be used to meet the spatial requirements of your home or business.
Selecting a fitting of a specific historical period can help you create a coherent space. By familiarising yourself with the history of your home or building, you can choose lighting that reflects the period, or that forms a contrast. For instance, if you live in a Victorian house, a chandelier can evoke a sense of historic charm.
However, using an ornate Victorian light in a clean contemporary design can make a superb feature, just like a stunning piece of artwork, but adding another level of light to your space at the same time.
Paying attention to the period of your space will help to add a level of authenticity to your interior design.
