Arriving home to living spaces solely lit by ceiling lights can leave your interiors feeling a little cold. So, how do you bring a warmer look? It's easy! Introduce a few lower-level light fittings fitted with warm white lamps, then turn them on as night falls. Here's the inspiration you need to get started.
Crank up the mood in your bedroom by placing a table light on your bedside tables, on both sides of your bed. For a seamless look, go for light models that suit your style of interior decorating. You might like to mix and match your selection of lighting models, keeping them working together by choosing similar colours or materials, or choose a perfect pair for a symmetrical appearance. Top tip: to achieve the best balance, purchase table lights that are scaled to suit your bedside tables — not too big and not too small.
Up the wall
Another fabulous option in the bedroom is to choose lights that can be wall-mounted above the side tables and either be plugged-in by you or wired-in by your electrician. This option keeps your tables clutter-free — terrific for small space living in studios or apartments.
Looking to bring a cosy vibe to your living room? Position a table light on each side of your sofa, or perhaps on a sideboard, and flick them on come nightfall. Again, shop for light styles that work in with your existing interior scheme — take a trip to the lighting section at Bunnings and you're bound to find a style you love. Floor lights are another terrific option for the living spaces of your home, simply place one by your sofa or maybe in a corner of the room (or both!). Hello, hotel style!
Drop it down
To bring the lighting down from the ceiling plane, and for a warm and cosy feeling, you'll find success if you have your electrician drop a pendant above your dining table or perhaps a series of pendants above your kitchen island bench.
