Lighting and decoration are seemingly distinct steps in the planning of the house, but in the end they come together in a great partnership. The right light emphasizes the decorative design, just as the decoration enhances the lighting, that is, a double that completes without giving up the functionality and the aesthetics.
And because it is so important inside a house that we decided to dedicate today's post to talk only about luminaires, more specifically about ceiling luminaires.
Ceiling fixtures are the most common and used. The reasons for this include price, ease of installation and practicality. Not to mention that the ceiling light is almost always responsible for the total illumination of the environment, even if you have a light coming from the floor or the wall.
But not all ceiling fixtures are the same, there are different models and each one of them applies to a specific situation. Know each one and know which one fits best in your design - for decoration and lighting:
Pendant lamps are the icing on the cake. In addition to contributing to the lighting of the place, they still have a huge weight in the visual of the environment. That is why it is important to choose them carefully.
Before buying a pendant lamp it is important to pay attention to the design and the colors, since it will be evident in the decoration and, consequently, it should harmonize with the whole environment.
Pendant luminaires are ideal for creating light bulbs in the environment and the lower the luminaires are installed, the more targeted they will be. Therefore, this type of luminaire turns out to be a great solution to enhance lighting.
You can use pendant lamps on the kitchen counter to facilitate the preparation of meals, on the dining table to leave the place nicer or on the sides of the bed, on the mute servants, to reinforce the light for a reading, for example.
Another important tip is to pay attention to the material with which the pendant lamp was made. Translucent luminaires, usually made of fabric, glass or cast type, allow light to propagate through the environment. Metal luminaires, for example, turn the light down, since this type of material does not allow light to pass through. So if you want a completely focused and focused lighting choose a metal luminaire, but if the intention is to make the light more diffused by the environment, the translucent options are the most indicated.
And what is the best room in the house for hanging lamps? All! Even in the bathroom, the pendants look beautiful.
The chandeliers basically follow the same principle of luminaires, but with the difference of them being larger and with details that give them a certain degree of refinement and sophistication. Chandeliers, usually made of glass or crystal, fit nicely into classic décor proposals and can be used mainly in living and dining rooms. Chandeliers are also great for cherishing high-ceiling homes.
Ceilings are a type of ceiling lamp made of LED and installed in a way that is embedded or superimposed on the ceiling. This type of luminaire gives a clean and modern appearance to the environment. Another advantage of ceiling panels is that they are very economical and have long durability. The ceilings can be used in any room of the house, without fear of making a mistake in the decor.
Spots and roof rails
Spots are another way to light the house from the ceiling. They have a modern appearance and can be installed alone or on rails, a trend in interior designs. The light of the spots can be directed, which is another advantage for those who are thinking of investing in this type of luminaire.
Decoration style versus lamp
Since the luminaire is an important part of the decoration, when it comes to buying your own it is important to pay attention to some details that will make a difference in the design. The first one is the material with which the luminaire was made. For modern designs, choose glass, metal or plastic luminaires. But if the intention is to create a more rustic and cozy environment, luminaires made of wood or natural fiber, such as straw or wicker, are the most suitable.
Iron luminaires can make an interesting decoration in retro, rustic and industrial-style proposals. Remember to also analyze the design and colors of the luminaire. For those who do not want to dare a lot, it is advisable to look for a lamp that follows the same color palettes of the decoration, but if you want to create contrast then you can venture for more striking and lively colors.
Another option is to invest in handcrafted luminaires. Imagine creating your own ceiling lamp? Youtube is full of tutorials that can help you make a different, creative and face-saving lamp.
