TYPES OF STATEMENT LIGHTING
Statement lighting is one of the best ways to accentuate any décor. It's also one of the simplest ways to set the mood for any occasion and bring attention to certain parts of the room.
There's so much to statement lighting, especially if it's unique and bold in style. Depending on the size and preference, statement lighting can be any number of light fixtures.
Probably one of the most versatile, the table lamp is an excellent way to play around with the light in a room. And because it's easy to move around, it provides plenty of decorating options.
With the lamp, it's not just about the light. If it is of attractive design, it adds to the overall aesthetic of the room. The size and shape of the table lamp will determine how dramatic the light effect will be.
Similar to the table lamp, the floor lamp provides versatility in both style and functionality. An oversized floor lamp placed in the right position of a minimalistic home will capture everyone's attention.
They're also an excellent choice if you want to create a reading nook. And if there's a corner of your home where there's not enough sunlight, soft light from a floor lamp can successfully mimic it.
Scones are often underrated, but they are very versatile. They can project light both downward and upward and deliver a spotlight type of illumination.
Perhaps not the best choice for ambient lighting, but they can make even a dull hallway more comfortable.
Chandeliers are what most people think about when they hear the term statement lighting. Primarily because a chandelier is a statement by default, it is designed to convey elegance and sophistication.
A beautiful chandelier will have crystals, beads, strings, and other types of accessories. This type of statement lighting is meant to be the centerpiece of a room, so it needs to be away from the wall.
Pendants are up there with lamps in terms of versatility. The minimalistic design means they are a suitable choice for kitchens, living rooms, and even bedrooms.
But because they usually hang relatively low, they are somewhat vulnerable and perhaps not the best choice for homes with small children.
Outdoor lighting can be an incredible way to make a statement in your neighborhood. A strategically located light fixture will highlight a balcony, porch, or a gazebo in the yard. Another option is to use paper lanterns to illuminate the outdoor dining or grilling station.
Making your statement with the right light
The wonderful thing about statement lighting is that it gives you the freedom to be creative. There are so many options on the market, and it's never too difficult to find something that will complement your home. Statement lighting is also a phenomenal way to continually change things up and keep the décor fresh and in keeping with your mood.
