Lighting design is one of the most important elements of an interior design and there are some great ways to light up your rooms without installing a false ceiling. Here are some gorgeous lighting designs that will take your breath away

Effective lighting is important in interior design. Lights for rooms can affect the ambiance and mood of a space and is one of the most fundamental elements of a house design. When placed expertly, fancy home lighting can add another dimension to a space, and truly bring an interior design project to life. Understanding daylight and how it enters a space is a crucial factor when designing lighting solutions. The lighting fixture must be positioned perfectly to bring warmth to a room and add to the natural light, complementing it.


A successful lighting design adds depth, height and highlights the impressive features of a room. It is a balance of light and shadow that creates a comfortable and dramatic atmosphere. To achieve this, different lighting options such as downlights, uplights, wall lights, floor lights, feature lights, pendants, and lamps should be skillfully integrated. The pop plus minus design  concept can be applied to the lighting to add interest and depth to each room.


There are two types of lighting to consider when designing interiors. One is functional lighting, like the kitchen lights that help you prepare a meal and the other is decorative lighting which is installed as a piece of design in itself, like a chandelier, a layered pendant lamp or an ornate floor lamp. By using these lighting options cleverly, you can create a home décor that is dazzling and unique.



Ideas to Light Up your Room without a False Ceiling

For a while now, there has been a trend of solely using false ceilings for lighting purposes. Explore the possibilities of integrating stunning false ceiling design with a variety of other gorgeous fancy home lighting options. You can create beautiful spaces with multiple other gorgeous fancy home lighting. The kind of lighting that you will choose will depend on what the room will be used for. Accent lighting can be used to enhance certain spots and ambient lighting can be used to create a great atmosphere in a room.


Here are some gorgeous and fancy home lighting for your interiors that will make a dazzling statement in every room.

1. Light Up a Large, Lavish Foyer with a Gorgeous Chandelier

Chandeliers look splendid in rooms that have tall ceilings, like foyers, and stairwells. In the foyer, they are the first beautiful representation of your home and immediately draws the eye. Large stairwells are perfect spaces for a cascading chandelier feature, as both the winding staircase and the layered chandelier create a sense of drama.  It is important to pick the right chandelier for the room. The chandelier should not overwhelm the space or get lost in it.

2. A Stylish Table Lamp can Make your Room come Alive

Modern living is more minimalistic and millennials prefer sleeker lines and cleaner looks. A table lamp is a great addition to a compact and small living space. Lampshades play a big part in the effect that is created and need to be factored in when choosing the lamp as they create interesting shadows on the walls. The shades can also be used to accent the upholstery by using colours and designs that complement it.

3. Create Interesting Designs with Hanging Lights

Hanging lights are a great way to add an interesting component to a room. Mismatched hanging lights over the dining table, cascading hanging lights in the foyer, uneven hanging lights over the kitchen-cum-dining island are all great ways to make dull spaces more interesting. The hanging lights over the dining table is a popular trend as it looks great, focuses light on the food and makes for a great dining experience.


4. Exquisite Floor Lamps can Elevate a Room’s Appearance

Floor lamps are great accent lights for rooms. A lovely ornate lamp in the corner of a bedroom next to a jalli screen will make a bedroom look very elegant. A floor lamp with a crystal chandelier shade will become a statement piece in a drawing room. Matching table lamps on either side of the sofa set in the living room with a complementing floor lamp in the corner will be all the lighting a small living room requires.


5. Unique Chandelier Light Designs for a Small Living Room

Who says a small living room cannot have a chandelier light? A unique way to create a statement in a small living room is to have a chandelier hanging down the corner of a room. This will not take up space as it is tucked away in a corner, will provides adequate lighting and is an exquisite piece of art in itself.


6. Graceful Pendant Lighting for Elegant Interiors

Pendant lighting comes in very graceful pieces and can fit just about anywhere and can be used in any kind of décor. They can be used as a cascading piece to liven up the corner of a bedroom, they can be dropped as twos and threes in different parts of a foyer for a majestic effect or a beautiful single piece can hang low over the living room table to create one single, stunning focal point.

7. Spice Up your Space with LED Lights in Room

If you are bored of traditional lighting and want to spice up your space, put up LED strip lighting along the edges of your corridors, along the walls of your living room or in psychedelic patterns on your ceiling. If you aren’t that adventurous, you can use them for accent lighting under the kitchen cabinets, up the side of bookshelves or to uplight the dining table. The end result is always off the charts.
