Creating the perfect lighting design doesn’t have to be a challenge, and if you’re designing an entire room, using the lighting as inspiration can be a great place to start. There are so many artistic light fixtures to choose from, and when picking a light, it’s important to consider its form as well as its function. You can have the perfect decor and design aspects in a room, but without the proper lighting, the space can’t come alive and be exactly how you want it.

In the video below, interior design expert Laurie Smith covers some of the aspects to look for in a light fixture, and how you can treat it as a work of art around which you can plan an entire room.

Making a Statement

Many homes have a “statement” piece in each room that sets the mood for the entire space. This can be a chair, a table, or a piece of decor that provides the color, pattern, or texture for the rest of the room’s design. When picking a light fixture, taking the time to look at the color, glass, and shape can give you design ideas that will perhaps inspire how you decorate the room. If you’re picking a hanging ceiling fixture such as a chandelier or a pendant, think about how it will act as a centerpiece as well as a source of illumination.
