Understanding the specifics of how light bulbs work in a setting and which ones are energy efficient and can save you on energy costs is important, but so is taking some time to step back. Lights aren’t just tools that make it possible to go about the business of our lives. Lights are also a form of art that can complement any interior design or cast a different mood in a setting. It’s important to remember that lights have form in addition to function, and the premise of most forms of art lies in its association to light. With no further ado, take a look at some ways you can use our decorative lights and decorative light fixtures to enhance your home, as well as what we can provide.
Probably the easiest and most effective way to incorporate decorative lights and decorative light fixtures into your home is for their value as accent lighting. Many rooms are lit with regular 60W incandescent bulbs in lamps or with ceiling lamps using incandescent or halogen floodlights. These forms of lighting are useful for lighting up the room, but half the time they are harsh and bright and the other half the time possess no unique personality of their own.
You can play with the color temperatures and brightness of accent lights like LED lights and other lamps, depending on how bright, warm, or cool you want the lighting to present. Whether for your dining room or living room, accent lighting can make a surprising difference in the setting.
Compliment Your Interior Design
Accent lighting doesn’t just set the mood, it can also make a significant impact on the spirit of a location. Lighting has a huge impact on the way a room will ‘feel’ when you walk into it, whether it is cold and open, warm and inviting, or even dim and seductive. The lighting you use will interact with your furniture and decor to set the mood of the rooms in your home.
Increase Home Value
Since decorative lights can have such a pronounced effect on the feeling of the rooms in your home, it should come as no surprise that something as simple as the addition of decorative light fixtures can improve the value of your home.
We’re not saying it’s like a new hot water heater or a brand new roof, but you can score some points with some well placed, well thought out decorative fixtures. The lights themselves are easy to replace and might even give the new owner the ability to change the lighting, but the fixtures themselves are more permanent and valuable.
Wall sconces are a wonderful form of wall lighting that can serve as a hardwired alternative to lamps that you would have to plug in. The sconces themselves add a lot of character to a setting even when the lights are not switched on, so for that reason alone, they might make a great addition to your home. The other thing they offer in addition to enhancing the mood is a slim profile that does not infringe on the openness of a setting.
Pendant lights are a form of ceiling light fixture that looks exactly like it sounds - unlike a chandelier that has a number of small lights, a pendant light is typically one fixture and one bulb. There are some very interesting pendant light fixtures out there, but most of the personality from one of these will come from the bulb that you use with it.
Track lights are typically more pronounced in a given setting than the first two examples that we gave and provide for a near unmistakable ‘industrial’ or ‘creative’ feel. It’s almost impossible to dissociate track lights from their common usage in studios and so the fixtures themselves will lend as much to the mood as the lights that you pair with them.
