4 Fabulous Ceiling Fixtures to Instantly Boost Style

One of the best ways to update any home is through lighting. If your home was built in the last ten years, chances are that it has builder lighting throughout that is less than fashionable. If you’re looking for an instant facelift that doesn’t break the bank, we recommend looking at new lighting options. From flush mounts and chandeliers to thoughtful pendant light placement, refreshed lighting gives your home plenty of oomph. Below are four of our favorite styles to recommend to clients who are looking to spruce up their space.

1. Flush Mount

    One of the simpler lighting choices, flush mounts are the ideal choice for something subtle yet stately. With so many options to choose from, you’re sure to find one that fits your home’s interior style. To make a bold statement, we like to use flush mounts featuring cut-outs and metallic details. This type of lighting looks best in transitional settings, as it doesn’t distract from the design. If you’re looking for more glamour, we suggest looking to semi-flush mounts that feature similar designs to chandeliers. Flush mounts with a little extra bling nod to luxuriousness without the intricacy of a cascading chandelier. That style’s brilliance and sophistication plays well with traditional or transitional homes. If you’re looking for something more masculine or industrial, flush mounts come in an array of options featuring matte bronze coloring in angular shapes and configurations. They look particularly beautiful in an office or living room with a dimmer setting.

    2. Chandeliers

      For those of us looking to add some glitz and glamour to our everyday routine, a chandelier is the perfect solution. Gone are the days when a chandelier meant an overbearing light fixture imposing glassy and obtrusive light on everything around it. With innovative designs and updated technology, we’re seeing a flurry of new chandeliers with a contemporary take on lighting. These chandeliers anchor a space without stealing attention away from the thoughtful design of the room. Options like beaded chandeliers provide subtle light with intricate detailing, while a wood chandelier is perfect for a luxe cottage setting.

      3. Pendants

        Pendant lighting has become a very popular choice for nearly every room in the house. Whether hung over a table or dotted above a kitchen island, pendant lighting is the perfect way to illuminate a kitchen. A large drum hung over a kitchen table provides ample light (and style) for a dinner party or just enough to finish working after dark. Hanging multiple pendants above a bar or island helps properly light the entire surface, which is necessary for food preparation and midnight snacking. Pendant lighting also looks beautiful as an anchor in an entry way or hallway, dramatizing the room around it. With different finishes, textures and scales available, you’d be hard-pressed to not find one you absolutely love.

        4. Unconventional Fixtures

          Oftentimes, we reach for lighting fixtures that don’t necessarily fit in any of the boxes above. They borrow characteristics from flush mounts, chandeliers and pendants to create a new and innovative design that lights up an entire room. The unconventional features that always steal our attention feature geometric designs, interesting angles, bold metallic accents and gravity-defying configurations. From designs boasting straightforward bulbs dotted in a row or simple Edison bulbs dangling from an industrial chandelier-pendant hybrid, we love adding these interesting and creative lighting solutions to homes for instant style boosts. Because they are so attention-grabbing, this lighting style is best suited for rooms with neutral color palettes and subtly designed furnishings so the light fixture can be the sole focus.
