Nothing can enhance a room more than effective and clever lighting. No matter how the room is furnished or decorated, an elegant or dramatic ceiling fitting can completely change the appearance and atmosphere of the space.
Whether you are looking for a subtle, diffused effect or to brighten up dark areas, a ceiling light can make all the difference to how lighting makes the room look. Modern ceiling lights can be used to complement colour schemes, highlight room features or just to create a stunning centrepiece.
A modern and contemporary style of décor will lend itself well to ceiling lights in strong geometric shapes in chrome and glass. Fittings with multiple ice cube, ball or even star shaped glass shades can add a delicate, but very modern, touch to strong room styles. Depending upon the particular choice of shades, the light will be reflected as though through a prism, or diffused by frosted glass for a more subdued effect.
For rooms with low ceilings, modern ceiling lights include glass and metal uplighter fittings that can solve the problem of limited hanging space without compromising on style and good looks. If you are fortunate enough to have high ceilings, long, elegant multiple crystal glass designer lighting pendants are the perfect way to add depth and style to the room.
Chandeliers may not seem like the obvious choice for modern ceiling lights, but need no longer be reminiscent of a dusty Victorian stately home. Angular shapes in bright chrome or Gothic styles in matte black or silver bring this style up-to-date. Chandeliers fit well with vintage décor styles, too, with antique brass blending well with retro paint colours and furnishings.
The rise of shabby chic and vintage French room themes has increased demand for stylish designer lighting and chandeliers are a popular choice here, too. Feminine crystal glass droplets, ornate curls, leaves and flowers combine with subtle candle-type lighting to add a stylish and cosmopolitan finishing touch to any room.
