How to choose the right modern lighting?
Modern lights are an effective way of enhancing the atmosphere. However, selecting the right size can be crucial to achieving this.
Incorporating large modern light fixtures into narrow hallways can feel overpowering, taking up some much-needed space. Alternatively, illuminating a large wall area with a small wall light may not provide enough light, causing the fitting to look lost.
It is also important to take ceiling heights into consideration. If you have high ceilings, you may want to include larger fittings that will illuminate the space efficiently and fill the space.
It is a great idea, when choosing modern lighting, to understand how and where it will be positioned. If it will be positioned to illuminate artwork, it is important to find a modern light which offers concentrated, directional light.
Consider the purpose of the light. Will it be used as practical illumination, or a decorative light?
In areas such as living rooms, lighting may often be included to create and enhance an atmosphere. A modern light fitting, paired with a warm colour temperature bulb, can help to form an inviting living space.
Where task lighting is needed, consider a modern light that can be moved or angled to where the light is needed. Our adjustable wall lights are fantastic bedside lights and can be manoeuvred to direct the light when it is time for a spot of late night reading.
Popular locations for modern lighting
Modern lighting can fit seamlessly into almost any space, with the ability to almost completely customise them.

While the metal finish of a light can be tailored to match metal finishings, such as door handles and picture frames.
Modern lights are extremely popular over a dining table, usually in a row of three. Tables vary in sizes and so can ceiling heights, which is where the flexibility of modern lighting comes into play. Select the size, style and shape of the light that will be the best addition to your dining table.
