Home lighting affects the entire experience of the home. When it is done right, home lighting can give the home a warm and welcoming character, and provide a distinct personality to each room. It can also blend in with home décor so that each space exudes the desired impression. Lamps are an important part of the home because of the light they put out and their design. Ceiling lamps and floor lamps both have a place in most homes.
Each space in the home can have its own character.
A large snail ceiling lamp or five falling arm ceiling lamp can be ideal for a sharp and crisp home office, while a totem floor lamp or signal floor lamp can be the right companion for avid readers who relax in the home library or den. Standing floor lamps in the bedroom corner can provide light before bed during a final check of a person’s smartphone.
Different rooms lend themselves to different types of lamps.
Modern ceiling lamps can be good choices for foyers and hallways to light a large area and make visitors feel welcome. Chandeliers can be elegant choices in formal dining rooms. A cozy living room with a fireplace and a family room with its own natural light from a large window or skylight may be better suited for standing floor lamps to avoid competing with the fire or sun.
Aesthetics are important, too.
The choice of modern ceiling lamps or standing floor lamps affects the overall aesthetics of the space. A room that displays artistic pieces may be better off with several well-placed floor lamps to illuminate specific paintings or objects. For a rec room, a ceiling lamp can unify the entire space, making everyone in the room feel included in the activities.
