5 Ways You Can Make a Statement With Custom Lighting, Cincinnati, Ohio

A room’s light source is affected by many factors including fixtures and the quality of light. Investing in custom lighting allows for more control over fixture appearances, ensuring beautiful lighting results. Here are some tips on how to use lighting to enhance the aesthetics of your home.

Custom Lighting Tips

1. Surprise With a Chandelier 

Chandeliers are typically installed in the central and most open room of a house, but to make a splash, it’s worth being a little unpredictable. For example, hanging a chandelier to a bedroom keeps it in a room of importance while adding an unexpected focal point.

2. Look for Design Deserts

One of the best ways to make a statement with your lighting is to find places in your home that look under-designed or uninspired. Add custom lighting for a quick and easy fix to creating more character and distinction in a room.

3. Consider the Shadow Effects

It’s important to assess not just the fixture itself, but where the shadow is going to fall into a particular space. Try positioning the shadow to land on a dead zone instead of covering a beautiful antique or elegant molding. 

4. Be Playful With Pendants

Many trendy and modern bars utilize dangling pendcustom lightingant lights. Instead of having standard central light in every room, consider draping a few pendants from different parts of the ceiling. This custom lighting option will enhance the space and add an element of the whimsy to the design.

5. Double up on Sconces

Sconces are an ideal fit for transitional spaces like hallways since they don’t need a lot of space. If you’re feeling daring, a bold idea is to take this design innovation further and add, not just one set, but two or three sets of sconces. A line of sconces created the sensation of a journey or procession and can make your hallway feel longer.
