Choose Indoor Lighting Like a Pro

Lighting fixtures do more than simply brighten your home; they make a statement and contribute to the décor of your living space. It is, therefore, crucial to choose the appropriate fixtures to glam your home.


Chandeliers make great décor pieces since they are always on display. Since they come in various shapes, sizes, designs and materials, they can fit virtually any budget or style.

How to Pick the Right One

When buying a chandelier for living or dining space, you should make sure that there is enough space between the chandelier and the ceiling; you don’t want a fixture that’s too big, after all. For large areas, two or more smaller chandeliers are better than one overly large chandelier.

Brands & Pricing

When it comes to good brands for chandeliers, where do you start?


You can’t go wrong with Kichler, which has been in the market for over 30 years. When shopping at Kichler, you have the luxury of shopping by finish or size and other options. Chandeliers at Kichler range from $215-$220.

Hinkley Lighting

Hinkley Lighting’s online store runs many discounts, the current one being the 25% off hot summer sale.


1800lighting has discounts on various pieces, and new shoppers are awarded a 20% discount on their first purchase.

Other Brands

Other places to ship include Hudson Valley, Venini and Waterford. Hudson Valley is famous for its vintage style lighting fixtures. Venini and Waterford are some good high-end brands, if you have the budget to spend on designer chandeliers.


Lamps should not only give light around your home but also decorate your space. Since they are not as pricey as chandeliers, a good statement piece is not as hard to purchase. When choosing a lamp, consider the purpose by asking yourself what you will use it for. Is it for studying? Is it a bedside lamp? Or, will it be used with another light? Whatever you purchase your lamp for will determine what its shape and size should be. For lighting up a room, a taller lamp is ideal since it could light up a larger area, for example. Meanwhile, a smaller lamp that you can swivel is perfect for desks when you need to study or work.

Pendant Fixtures

Pendant lights are elegant and spell class all over your home when used correctly. They are mostly used over kitchen counters, dinings, hallways, and kitchen islands. Unfortunately, they do not give off too much light. As such, it is crucial to choose a large enough pendant or use many at once if you want function over style from this type of lighting.
