You can use lighting to create a luxurious ambiance in your home. Combined with stylish pieces of furniture and décor items, lighting can make a room feel more glamorous. The type of lighting fixtures you choose will also bring a luxurious harmony to the room. Consider natural light in the room so that your lighting options work harmoniously with the natural light available.
These are some tips on how to choose lighting that will elevate the sophistication level of your room.
Layer The Lighting
You do this by using different sources of light placed strategically in other areas of the room. You can have the primary light source, then have lamps or additional wall lights in different areas of the room. Adjust the lighting from all the sources so that the light is not so bright that it creates glare.
You want a soft glow effect from all the light sources. The light in the room should be comfortable and welcoming and not too dark because the room will look gloomy. A well-lit room looks elegant.
Use Statement Lighting
Lighting is made of metals and materials that can complement your décor or stand out against it. The lighting should fit into the room’s décor style and match the color scheme to achieve the desired décor goal.
For instance, if the room’s color scheme is neutral colors, then a bright-colored lighting piece will look out of place. Statement lighting can enhance the beauty of other components in the room. A grand chandelier, for instance, will elevate the sophistication of the room.
Lighting To Enhance Décor Pieces
Lighting can draw attention to certain style elements that you would like to draw the eye to. For example, soft glowing lights can be placed underneath an art piece to bring your attention to the artwork. Accent lighting will use shadows and light to highlight what you want to be of interest. This use of light will make your room look more glamorous.
The right amount of light will enhance the room décor. You can achieve different intensities by using bulbs and the style of the lighting. For instance, some lighting designs will be brighter than others.
Brighter bulbs are great for areas like the bathroom or make-up room. Soft lighting is ideal for the bedroom to create a soothing effect. Comfort is central in luxury, and you don’t want to feel like the light is not correct. Low wattage bulbs will produce softer light compared to bright fluorescent bulbs.
Ensure You Have Enough Lighting
Consider the space that you have and get lighting that will produce enough illumination. For instance, in a high ceiling room, smaller accent lights may not work to sufficiently light the room, or the lighting will be uneven, with some areas receiving more light than others.
You can use a combination of lighting to achieve a glamorous effect. You can use a massive chandelier as your primary light source and other complementary lights such as lamps or pendant lights.
