When choosing to update some of the core features of your home, lighting can often go overlooked. Interior designers and photographers agree that luxury accents and décor are some of the most noticeable features in any environment. There are so many types of lighting available nowadays that there is a whole category of luxury lighting itself.
It is recommended that you layer your lighting as much as possible to create a great atmosphere for your home. The three basic types of light you should attempt to layer are ambient, accent and task lighting. Doing so can have a huge impact on how you feel in your space. Luxury lighting is a fantastic way to impress your guests and make you feel happy and comfortable. Continue reading for four types of luxury lighting that will look great in your home.
A great form of ambient lighting is overhead fixtures like chandeliers. It is possible to choose what colour of bulb you’d like for your overhead lights which gives you the freedom in deciding how each room looks. Like most types of luxury lighting, chandeliers can be made bespoke to your taste and interior. Choosing what type of chandelier you want can instantly change the look of any room in your home, adding drama and elegance. Some chandeliers can include crystal and glass. Choose wisely and add a touch of class to your home.
Lamp shades can also be made bespoke. They are a bit easier to tie into your current aesthetic when compared with a chandelier. Luxury lamp shades are also more adaptable as you can easily move them around your home without as much hassle. Lamp shades are a great addition to any interior and are a fantastic way to pull your colour scheme together. They can be vibrant and eye-catching or soft and blending. They also vary in textures and materials – some examples include silk lamp shades, pleated lamp shades and figured shades. Lucky for you, there are plenty to choose from!
There is no better way to set the mood and atmosphere in your home than to choose dimmable light switches. They’re a great overhead feature but can also act as a great task light. Dimming the brightness of your lights can change the ambience of each room in your home to suit the time of day and activity.
If dimmable switches are to your taste, smart lights are that extra step forward to ultimate luxury. Smart lights cannot only be dimmed, but they can also change colour. For example, Philips HUE lights can be connected to your Amazon Echo and be switched on and off via an app on your mobile device. Long away are the days you need to get off the sofa to turn off the lights before the movie starts. How cool is that?
Develop your home interior today and choose some luxury lighting for your convenience and atmosphere.
