Tip 1) Layer your Lighting

Layering your lights can help create a balanced and functional space; by combining different types of lighting in each room, you can create a flexible lighting scheme which is ideal for any occasion.

Ceiling lights will illuminate the whole room, whilst the use of floor lamps in the evenings can generate a relaxed vibe and table lamps can brighten cosy corners creating the perfect place to curl up with a book.

By combining different lighting options, you can achieve a harmonious and functional lighting scheme that enhances both the aesthetics and functionality of your space.

Tip 2) Use Warm-coloured Light Bulbs

Bright white light is extremely stimulating, whereas yellow-white light is warmer and has a gentler, more calming effect, just like the lovely glow from a log fire.

Incorporating warm-colored light bulbs during the winter helps to create a more welcoming and comfortable environment. This warm, amber-like light is particularly effective during the darker, colder months when you wish to create a sense of warmth.

Using bulbs between 2700 – 3000 Kelvin, is sure to bring that cosy ambience into your home whilst providing a visually pleasing look within your home.

Tip 3) Think of Lighting As Art

Choosing bold designs featuring sculptural shapes, alternative textures or coloured glass will guarantee a style statement, as well as provide illumination for your chosen space; think of lighting as a piece of art.

By taking a traditional fixture and placing it into a modern setting, you can create an interest through contrast, while taking a chic, modern fixture and incorporating it within a traditional setting will infuse new vitality and a sophisticated accent.

Tip 4) Spruce Up Your Shades

Revamping your entire space with every season isn’t always possible however, when you incorporate new light shades, you can achieve a brand new look. The use of warm colours will transform your area into a more intimate area, especially incorporating luxurious reds, yellows and oranges.

Alternatively, incorporating light coloured shades will help to accentuate the light within your whole room. Soft pastel shades, can bring a sense of tranquillity and a hint of colour to your space without being too bold.

Tip 5) Create an Ambience with Candles

Adding a candle is a fast and effective way to add light into your space; their soft, flickering glow produces a lovely ambience that simply cannot be replicated, whilst adding to your illuminations. Why not incorporate the wintery season in your space with scents such as cinnamon, orange, clove or pine?

Alternatively, flameless candles are a great substitution, especially for households with children and pets; you can place them anywhere without the fire hazard. These innovative inventions will not melt with prolonged use even if made with real wax, therefore offering illuminations for much longer than normal candles.
