Choosing Statement Lighting

Lighting serves as both a functional necessity and a powerful design element. Beyond simply illuminating a space, statement lighting has the ability to captivate, inspire, and define the aesthetic of a room.

What is statement lighting?
Statement lights often command attention are are visual focal points in the room. Your eye will automatically be drawn to them. They can vary from bold chandeliers to artsy pendants or sconces. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box and opt for bold, unconventional designs that reflect your personality and aesthetic preferences.

Consider the Space
Before selecting statement lighting, consider the size, scale, and function of the room in which it will be placed. Larger rooms with high ceilings may require grander fixtures to make a significant impact, while smaller spaces benefit from more delicate and streamlined designs.

Consider Functionality
While aesthetics are important, don’t overlook the practical considerations when selecting statement lighting. Ensure that the fixture provides adequate illumination for the intended purpose of the room, whether it’s task lighting for a kitchen island or ambient lighting for a dining area.

Overall, statement lighting can completely transform a space and a design into something different. One light can turn a space into a bold and stylish dining room, or a rustic and cozy kitchen.
