If you’ve ever been on Instagram during ‘Golden Hour’ then you’ll know just how important good lighting is. You can buy all the quirky knick-knacks and bespoke trinkets in the world, but if they aren’t complemented by a warm glowing hue or enhanced by a stunning spotlight then we’re sorry to tell you but your home decor will always fall flat.
The key to a happy home is good lighting. No one wants drearily lit kitchens and sombre living room lighting - it’s all about flooding your home in warm hues and dazzling spotlights to add a final va-va-voom to your abode. To achieve this desired look, have a gander at our wide range of bespoke lighting, each lovingly crafted with you in mind. From desk lamps to table lamps and wall & ceiling lights, there’s something to fit any bill you’re looking to settle. Heck - we’ve even got outdoor lighting so no part of your home will go without.
All our lighting comes with free shipping - so don’t worry about holding back. Go for the droopiest pendant lights and the tallest floor lamps and rest assured you won’t have to pick up any scary postage fees.
If you thought lighting was all fun and games then think again. There’s a method to the madness so let us illuminate the way. Unbeknownst to most, there are three types of lighting and matching the type to your taste is the secret formula to nailing this lighting game.
Ambient lighting is our personal fave - a radiating glow that flushes a room in an inviting warm colour. Ideal for creating relaxing environments that are easy going on your eyes whilst also creating enough light to get shizz done. To achieve this glow, check out our overhead fixtures like Sotto Luce’s oaky circular ceiling lamp or Zanolla’s amber glass ceiling lamp, both of which will emanate just the right about of light to create serious ambient vibes. If you don’t want the hassle of fitting a ceiling lamp (we don’t blame you), this look can also be created with stand alone fixtures such as table and floor lamps. Try out Look4Lamps’ industrial sand-grey floor lamp for ease, we personally think it would look great in a corner of your living room.
Next up is accent lighting which is all about accentuating (get it) a certain spot in a room. This is the sort of lighting that is great if you’ve got a really expensive piece of art that you’re particularly fond of, or a unique wall texture that you don’t want your friends to miss. This one’s a bit trickier to perfect, as you’ve gotta make sure that your accent lighting is at least three times brighter than the rest of your lighting. No stress though, ‘cos our wall mounted fixtures like Look4Lamps’ contemporary orange cylinder wall lamp will do just that.
Last but certainly not least is task lighting. Now, this one is pretty self-explanatory - task lighting is all about constructing flawless lighting to help you complete a task. For this type of lighting, it’s all about finding a fixture that will localise its light to one specific area whilst also being adjustable. Go for Dyberg Larsen’s sleek black table lamp for some minimalist craftsmanship - perfect for creating a clean work space to allow your creativity to flourish.
The most important thing to note here is that this isn’t a one or the other kind of sitch. Each type of lighting can be used together, in fact, we actively encourage you to do so. Whack some accent lighting in with your ambient lighting for optimal aesthetic and practicality purposes.
Now that we’ve given you the ins and outs of lighting types, let’s get down to the nitty gritty business of choosing the perfect lighting fixture for your home.
The first step is to establish what room you’re trying to light up. If you’re after kitchen lighting, you’ve got to make sure you’ve got enough lighting to prepare your food safely (don’t lose a finger in the name of ambience, people). If you’ve got an island in the middle of your kitchen for example, then go for TEO’s yellow steel pendant lamp so it can beautifully spotlight the surface whilst you chop your veg. As for bedroom lighting, this is the area of your home where serious ambience is encouraged. To catch those Zzzz’s you need a lowly lit bedroom - think Mylight’s Dimmable LED Stripes as well as Tolhuijs’ industrial caged floor lamps to spotlight the parts of your room that you’ve got a special soft spot for (we’re looking at you bed).
If you’re more of a outdoors rather than indoors kinda person, then we’ve got you covered. Be economically and environmentally friendly with Luci’s portable outdoor solar candles. With a selection of red, green and purple tints, you can customise your outdoor space to suit any colour scheme.
While achieving the right glare or glow for a room is important, there’s all sorts of lighting to play with - from Tistéane’s rustic outdoor lighting, to Sotto Luce’s vampy pendant lamps, so make sure you let your personality shine through. If you’re a traditional type with a penchant for playing by the rules, then Zanola’s gorgeous purple ceiling lamp will tick all your boxes. Or, if you’ve got a modern palette, might we suggest geometric lines and flawlessly shaped circles and ovals. We’ve also got vintage fixtures, with Look4Lamp’s vintage green pendant light taking us right back to the good old days.
Now you’ve chosen your lighting, time to move onto the next important step: pairing it with the right lighting hardware. Fit your chosen lighting with the perfect bulb for you - whether it’s an LED bulb for your table lamp to ensure a direct, bright light that won’t get too hot when you’re doing a long bout of work, or an incandescent filament bulb in Filamentstyle’s industrial caged pendant lamp to maximise that brutalist look that all those hip urban graphic designers are digging right now.
