Memorial Day Sale—Lighting Design Rules And These 15 Timeless Chic Lighting Fixtures Will Add A Dash Of Glam To Your Home

Lighting is one of the most critical design factors to make you home look and feel good. Whether you’re looking for a statement chandelier , a classic wall sconce or a minimalist task lamps, let’s talk about some general lighting design rules.

Here are 3 simple rules to consider when you are in the process of choosing right lighting fixtures.

1. Choose a Design Theme That Talks To You
First thing first, explore and define your own style and aesthetic before making any decision on the lighting fixtures by browsing through magazines and Internet( or just sign up our blog since we are talking the lighting all the time). Do you favor more classic over contemporary?  Are you a super fun of boho anything? Will mid-century modern or clean lines reflect who you are? Or you are open to the timeless mixing and matching approach? We know that finding your signature style sometimes can be overwhelming. Rule of the thumb is always choosing the those that you fall in love with and please your eye. After all, besides functionality, lighting fixtures are always a crown jewel in a home.

2. Consider The Layers of Lighting As Part Of Decision Process
Usually, there are three layers of lighting—ambient, task, and accent lighting. All of these three layers work together to delivery necessary work illumination, set the different moods and highlight the zones in your home. Ambient lighting refers to ceiling fixtures like recessed lighting, chandeliers. Task lighting like pendants over an island, under-cabinet lighting, floor reading lamps,table lamps, swing-arm wall sconces that will provide a clear function. Accent lighting is the one to highlight the zones and artworks in a space and it can be more decorative.

 3. Learn How to Hang
How To Hang Pendants: When hanging island pendants, leave about 30–32″ from the island countertop to the bottom of your fixture, and space each pendant about 2.5-feet apart.

How To Hang Linear: For linear island lights, go with a fixture with a length that does not exceed ²/³ of the island. For a very long island, consider two linear lights if your electrical situation allows it.

How To Hang Chandeliers: To calculate the size of your chandelier, multiply ceiling height by 2.5–3 to get suggested height for fixture. An 8’ ceiling calls for a chandelier height of 20–24″. For diameter, add the room’s dimensions and convert sum to inches. A 12′ x 12′ room indicates a chandelier with a 24″ diameter would work.

Sodsai 1 Light Pendant

Crisp, clean and effortlessly chic, Sodsai elevates the traditional pendant light. Pretty scalloped detailing on the natural linen shade soften the design. Just a hint of the clear glass bulb is visible from beneath the shade, sending a bright, clear light below while filling the shade above with a warm glow. The white shade, aged brass finish and black fabric-covered cord perfectly complement each other—and any color scheme.
