Easy Ways to Add Style (Part 1: Lighting)


Welcome to Part 1 of a 4 Part series about easy ways to use accessories to add style to any room in your home.

Lighting, whether it’s lamps or pendant lights, is essential to not only for a well-lit room, but can also have a big impact on your entire home’s overall look and feel.

Illuminate your space and amplify your style with these tips for choosing the right lighting for your home.

1.) The Importance of Good Lighting

Even the most stylish room isn’t ever truly complete without proper lighting. Every room in your home should have  a combination of general lighting, task lighting and accent lighting to set a mood and provide sufficient and functional lighting. Table and floor lamps, which typically fall under the task lighting category, are especially important because they play both a functional and decorative role in your home. Size, shape and style all need to be taken into account when selecting lamps to suit both your lighting needs and decorative styles of your liking.

2.) Have Fun with Pendant Lighting

Pendants are smaller hanging light fixtures that draw attention in a room, in part because their decorative portion hangs down closer to eye level on a long pole or wire.

Whether they’re used in a traditional setting (kitchen island) or in an unconventional space (over a reading nook), pendant lights are a great source for style and illumination. Their compact size and adjustable height allows you to use multiple and arrange them in creative ways.

3.) Lamps

Portable lighting — or lamps — is a popular element of design in every room. On a table or on the floor, they accessorize spaces with interesting shapes and colors. Use them to add scale by mixing tall and short, petite and bulky.

Give a room an instant facelift by changing the lamps or lampshades. An affordable accessory, a new lamp can give a room a fresh look. Or, redecorate without spending a dime by trading lamps among rooms. There’s more than one perfect shade for every lamp base, too. Pick up a couple of new lampshades to refresh a stale look.
