Lighting is a key factor in any room but even more important in a small room. The key to lighting is to layer it in the room, from floor to ceiling. The use of multiple types of lighting helps darken all areas of a room, which can close in a space and make it feel small. Multi-layering lighting entails the use of the natural light you have in your room paired with floor lamps, table lamps, ceiling lights, sconces on the walls and even artwork lights. All types of lighting work together to brighten dark corners and light up spaces that feel closed in by darkness. Evening time is one of the most obvious times of day where a room can lose its sense of size and can be rectified with a generous amount of artificial lighting.
Overhead lighting tends to pool in one spot, focusing the eye to only a small section of the room but using a few smaller lamps in each corner will draw the eye around making the room seem larger. Try some cool wall sconces to keep the floor space open.
In any interior space natural light is your best friend. If you’re lucky enough to have big windows, leave them uncovered or go for long sheer curtains instead of heavy drapes in order to brighten the space, which can even benefit your health!
Uniquely designed, modernized chandeliers are one way to show of your personal style. Have fun with the type of chandelier you choose. There are fun sunburst-style chandeliers, or choose from other geometric type designs. You can pair your hanging light fixture with fun, mid-century side table lamps or wall sconces.
