Choosing the Right Light Fixture: A Matter of Form and Function
Lighting can transform a space from blah to wow in just the click of a switch. Have you ever walked into a room and immediately felt at home? Light fixtures–make that the right light fixtures, can create the mood that you are looking for. Whether you want the gentle glow of a sconce or the dramatic illumination that overhead lighting can provide, finding the right light is a matter of choosing fixtures that compliment your home–and your style. Here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing a light fixture:
- Style of home: Is your home modern, country, or eclectic? Selecting fixtures that compliment the style of your home can make a huge difference.
- Size of the room: Some rooms just need more light than others. Expansive space needs to be lit in zones, so that each corner of the room is illuminated evenly, while smaller spaces may only need a few task lights.
- Creating atmosphere: When you walk into the room, how do you want it to feel? For instance, a wall sconce can make a dramatic statement and make a living room feel cozy.
