Think about the dimensions and unique aspects of a room before deciding on a statement lighting fixture. If your room has asymmetrical architectural features, using a striking fixture as a focal point immediately brings your eye up to the center of the room.
Creating symmetry elsewhere in the room with matching art prints, window dressings or other furniture such as side tables is a smart design concept which creates the showcase for your statement lighting fixture.
When you are shopping for the right statement lighting fixture, consider the additional features of your space. There may be ceiling beams that will add their own strong visible impact, a grid of surrounding windows, or even a landscape feature that you wish to draw attention to. This goes without saying, but remember to also measure the proportions of ceiling beams and the surrounding space before purchasing the statement piece you wish to apply.
If you’re looking for lighting that makes an impact but won’t take up too much vertical space due to ceiling height – to that end, The Flux 16 Light Chandelier by Access Lighting is a real stunner. This “Sputnik” styled luminary is easy to put together and provides plenty of ambient light.
In the end, choose pieces that not only provide superior illumination, but make you smile and lift your mood when you see them!
