Rooms don’t have to be static places that never change; make your spaces more dynamic with lighting features. In most houses, overhead lighting is meant to be bright and reach all corners. However, a room can change its look by using lamps to highlight features of the room or just light certain areas. In a way, lighting can accent design and elevate a simple room to something more dramatic.
Three Ways To Use Light For Effect
- Dramatic. Dim lighting makes for a dramatic feel. When only portions of the room are lit, the other areas gain a sense of mystery and stoke curiosity—what’s over there? Think about thin, metallic lamp bases with smaller bulbs and modern lamp shades. Geometric shapes like a cube or narrow rectangle cast light in a column, limiting the lighting to that area only and creating the drama you seek.
- Relaxed. Filling a room with lamps that emit only a soft light creates a romantic or relaxed atmosphere. Think about small lamps on a mantle, round, plump lamps with large oversized shades sitting on an end table, or a lazy, soft-light lamp that reaches out from behind a couch and drapes over the sitting area.
- Artistic. Sconces or sentry lights on a console create bursts of light that make a room feel intense and purposefully draw attention. Some sconces shine light upward and downward, allowing you to make a play of light on a wall. Smaller lights that rotate allow you to highlight a feature of the room like an art piece or sculpture. Posting two of the same lamps on a console makes for an attention-grabbing set that draws the eye because of the dual qualities of symmetry and brightness.
