Keep it consistent
Lighting can help maintain a sense of flow in your house design or be used as a standout feature. You can get light fittings to match any décor style, whether that be modern, colonial, industrial etc.
Think about lighting as another aspect of the design of your house – after all, you may love that art deco chandelier but if you have a beach house vibe happening with the rest of your décor, chances are it will stick out like a sore thumb rather than a beautiful feature.
Consistency is also important when looking at the type of light bulbs used. As there are variances is the type of light emitted (cool, warm etc) it is important these work together.
Make a point
A beautiful statement chandelier or pendant light can create a real talking point in your home.
However, lighting can be used to create focal points in other ways, such as illuminating artwork, furniture or even a display cabinet. Think creatively about the aspects of your house and decor that you wish to show off, and plan your lighting to bring out the best in your home.
