How to Make a Statement with Your Lighting

December 7, 2018

When it comes to making a statement with your interior design, lighting may not be the first thing that comes mind, but bold lighting decisions can completely change the look and feel of your home.

As well as considering fixtures and accent lighting, don’t forget to think about your light switches too. Choose the right statement light switch and your room could be transformed. There are some stunning options available from Wandsworth Electrical, in multiple beautiful styles.

Why Go Bold?

There are many reasons for choosing to incorporate statement lighting into your home. You may want to maximise light to make a small space feel smaller. You might want to add drama with a large piece which doesn’t take up valuable floor space. You may just like the appearance of bold lighting and accessories!

Whatever the reason, statement lighting can add so much to a room, highlighting architectural features and showing off intricate design details of your building.

Ensure that you choose fixtures which complement your interior especially when you consider they are the most frequently touched feature of your home.

Statement Lighting Options

There is a statement lighting option for every taste. They come in a wide variety of textures, materials, shapes and colours. You may want to go for a chandelier, a pendant light, an inverted pendant light, track lighting etc.

A light doesn’t have to be large and in charge to make a statement, it can be small and still interesting enough to be bold.

Consider something along the lines of a floral chandelier, with either glass or metal flowers if the aesthetic you are going for is softer and more romantic. Or how about a copper pendant if you want something that is on trend, simple yet bold? For a more traditional and dramatic look, a stained-glass fixture adds colour and character to any room.

How to Accessorise

Once you’ve decided on your fixture, the next step is to choose your switches, a choice which is just as important as that of the fixture itself!

At Wandsworth Electrical, there are a number of ranges which are beautifully bold, themselves adding a statement to any room.

The Heritage Collection, available in either Georgian, Adam or Victorian styles suits a more tradition aesthetic, adding grace and character. This is a choice which works beautifully with an elegant piece such as a chandelier.

For a more modern look, the Crystal Collection makes a statement with its subtlety, offering a transparent plate to showcase your wall coverings, and the Dimensions Collection is bold in its unique round plate design.

Whilst some prefer subtle lighting options, statement lighting can be just as elegant and beautiful. Wandsworth offer the perfect electrical accessories fit for this purpose.
