Unique Lighting Ideas for Every Room in The Home

Unique Lighting Ideas for Every Room in The Home

Maybe we’re biased, but playing around with the lighting in your home is one of the best ways to completely transform the look, feel, and vibe of any room in your property.

Whether you’re trying to redecorate on a budget or simply want to change the feel of a space, Bright Ideas Lighting has the perfect lighting solutions to help. In this blog, we will go through some unique ways of using lighting to bring your interior décor game to the next level with barely any effort.


Kitchen Lighting

For most families, the kitchen is the busiest room in the home, acting as the gathering point for meals, entertaining, and socialising. If this rings true for your family, investing in modern and effective lighting solutions for your kitchen is a must. While kitchen lighting was designed to be as bright as possible in the past, nowadays more and more homeowners are playing around with mood lighting and unique lighting to bring their kitchen décor to the next level. Here at Bright Ideas Lighting, we recommend installing feature lighting over the most important parts of your kitchen to really make your décor pop. Examples of this include statement pendant lighting, or even chandeliers, over kitchen islands and tables, and hidden under-cabinet lighting to brighten kitchen counters and workstations. By highlighting all the important parts of your kitchen individually, you can control the overall look, vibe, and atmosphere of the space to your preferences.



Living Room Lighting

Unlike kitchen lighting, which focuses on brightening the space up for entertaining, most living rooms benefit from softer and warmer lighting solutions. If you’re at a loss for how to light your living room space, one of the quickest and easiest ways to invite warmth and cosiness is to invest in some timeless table lamps and reading lamps, ideally with a yellow-toned bulb rather than fluorescent or LED bulbs. Placing these lamps at set points across the room, for example, on a coffee table, behind a couch, or beside the television, can create a glowy, comfortable, and deeply relaxing vibe into your space without having to rewire existing ceiling lights or spend any money on furniture or paints to redecorate.



Bedroom Lighting

No two bedrooms are the same, which is why it’s difficult to choose the perfect lighting solution for your individual space. When opting for new lighting, it’s important to ascertain what kind of bedroom user you are. Do you see your bedroom as a place to rest your head at the end of the night, or is it your oasis of calm and relaxation after a long day? Is the bedroom designed to be for a child, teenager or adult? How much space does your bedroom hand? Depending on your answer, there will be a plethora of lighting solutions to suit you, however, a good rule of thumb is to install a lighting set-up that offers clear light when needed (say, for getting ready in the morning) and softer, warmer light for those cosy nights unwinding in bed before you sleep. A great way of achieving this is by installing a bright white light as the ceiling light and/or wall lights, and softer lamps or feature lighting in the room to be turned on when it gets dark. That way, you get the best of both worlds and never have to compromise.



Outdoor Lighting

Outdoor lighting is a great way of enhancing your home’s security while also allowing you to create a sense of atmosphere and comfort in your garden. While many homes across Ireland opt for solar stake lighting to achieve this, there are better options now on the market to level up your outdoor lighting game. Here at Bright Ideas Lighting, we recommend bollard and pillar lighting for homes that require plenty of outdoor lighting, and outdoor fairy lights or bunting lighting for homes that simply want to bring a modern and fun vibe outdoors. Unlike indoor lighting, the colour of outdoor lighting doesn’t matter as much to the overall feeling of the space, with plenty of cost-efficient, energy-efficient, and beautiful outdoor lighting options now on the market to suit all types of gardens.


Whether you’re a home DIY fanatic or simply want a cheap and easy way of transforming the inside and outside of your home, why not try experimenting with innovative new lighting ideas from our lighting store today to see how we can help.
