Londoners are well aware of Luxury Chandelier, the London-based company passionate about first-rate lighting designs and –fixtures. And even though the name might suggest a prime focus on chandeliers, the team at Luxury Chandelier ensures a world of options (from chandeliers and wall sconces to table- and floor lamps) to choose from. 

What makes Luxury Chandelier stand out from competitors is the way its lighting fixtures are made. Instead of mass production, expert craftsmanship and a passion for artistic design are included in each and every design and project. That is why Luxury Chandelier, which also has a strong online presence, can easily meet the demands of people seeking original, solid, and durable lighting products for any interior (and exterior) space at home.

Case in point, these suggestions (and sleek designs) can add a world of illumination, style and visual luxury to the six main areas of your home. 

1. For your hallway

• A table lamp near the front door for a sense of warmth and cosiness upon immediate entry.

• A string of fairy lights – it might not be adequate for most rooms, but can ensure a glittering, whimsical feel for your entryway / hallway space. 

• With any area involving stairs, the main priority is seeing where your feet are going. And that’s why an overhead light, controlled by a wall switch at both the top and bottom of the staircase, is so much more practical than a table lamp.

2. For your living room

• As the living room is intended for socialising and relaxing, a single overhead fixture can seem a bit glaring. 

• Table- and floor lamps add to the layered lighting effect and help to illuminate overlooked corners. 

• Go with different levels of brightness for various purposes: softer lamps for ambience and brighter spotlights for reading.

• Try dimmable ceiling- or wall lights for a cosy ambience. 

3. For your kitchen

• Adequate lighting is very important, as it’s the one area in the home where you’re working with sharp objects and warm / boiling surfaces. 

• Table lamps make too many shadows and could leave your working zone too dark.

• Ceiling lights are much more effective at lighting up the entire room.

• Spotlights can be added under wall cabinets, as well as extractor fans to further illuminate work surfaces. 

4. For your bedroom

• A table lamp right next to your bed saves you from having to get up in order to shed some light around the room. 

• Don’t discount the importance of layered lighting in a bedroom to help with different activities (i.e. table lamps for reading, an overhead ceiling fixture for getting dressed). 

• Dimmable lights are especially useful in a bedroom to help set the mood…

5. For your bathroom

• Bright lighting is needed for certain actions like shaving or applying makeup. 

• Dim lights are more appropriate for luxuriously soaking in a tub.

• Get the best of both worlds and install a dimmer! 

6. For your dining room

• The table should be the primary focus here, which is why proper fixtures need to be placed directly above the dining zone. 

• Consider the wall treatment, as dining rooms often have decorative paint treatments or wallpapers for extra visual oomph. Darker wall colours reflect less light, which is why more lumens may be required for the dining room. Ambient and task lighting combined in a dining room should read at 3,000-6,000 lumens.
