Today, we are going to offer you three tips on how to best light your contemporary home.
Tip 1: Use lamps to light your space. You can change the entire feel of a room by using lamps as your main source of light. For a more contemporary feel, set your lamps in the corners of your room or on shelves that are placed up against your walls. This will create the impression of a much more open space – which is what a contemporary design craves! Check out this unique contemporary lamp. It’s the Contemporary Circle Table Lamp from Diamond Lighting.
Tip 2: Set your contemporary-style hanging or chandelier light in a way that doesn’t create too many shadows in your room and on your room’s walls. To achieve this, you will need to utilize a modern-style chandlier like this Trans Globe Contemporary 4 Light in polished chrome. We love the sleak design and because of how the light source hangs, it’s very unlikely to cast shadows on the walls of your room.
Tip 3: Finally, your final contemporary lighting tip – use accent lighting to highlight an oversized photograph or piece of artwork. The lights should be mounted on or near the from of the picture and provide a strong, bold light white beam of light onto the image – giving it a striking appearance in your contemporary room.
