Mixing And Matching: The Best Pendant Light Fitting For Different Living Rooms
When it comes to furnishing and dressing the different rooms in your home, it’s important to consider the placement of natural light, the size of the space, your colour and design scheme, and the way that the space is used. For living rooms in particular, you will want to look at how each element of the room delivers on the presentation of a relaxing, homely, family space – complimenting the surrounding areas and adjoining rooms.
Which is where this blog comes in. Taking you through three different types of living spaces, this blog is all about matching spaces with the ideal living room pendant lighting solution – considering the size and natural light as well as colour.
A Large, Open Plan Living Space
First things first, you need to look at the size of the space compared with the size of the light – and whether you want the light to become a focal feature or blend into the surroundings.
A large and open plan living space lends itself to a statement pendant light fixture, which is oversized in structure and vibrant in design. We tend to recommend that homeowners dressing in a large and modern living space opt for tinted glass on their pendant light, as it softens the glow and warms up the space effortlessly – not to mention it adds a pop of colour to an otherwise very neutral setting.
Opt for a multi-drop pendant light to create a central feature or consider a strip of individual lights across your living space to spread out your light sources.
A Small Living Room
Light is important in a smaller and more compact living room because it has the power to illuminate and brighten the space, making it feel bigger. Add transparent glass pendant lights in the centre of the room to make it feel bigger, with a single statement pendant light
Ensure, when dressing a smaller living room, that all light sources are fixed to the ceiling or walls to maximise surface space and keep the room as clutter-free as possible.
A living Room With Lots Of Natural Light
A living room with lots of natural light can benefit from a range of different light sources, all using tinted or darkened glass which balances the flow of light with the fittings aesthetic and decorative benefits. Floor lamps, table lamps, and wall lights can all create a balanced flow of light which juxtaposes large windows and help to contribute towards a cosy and homely inside space come rain or shine.
If your room or home benefits from lots of natural light, it is also worth noting that any light fitting you add to the space will reflect that sunlight–igniting decorative as well as functional benefits.
In short, the lights that you fit in your living room have the power to transform the aesthetic of the space, warming up a large and modern space or making a more compact living room feel lighter and brighter.
