How To Choose The Best Lighting Fixtures

When it comes to choosing a light fixture for a certain room or for your entire home, there are so many options! From led lights, chandeliers, dim lights, and hanging lights to wall lights and more, it can be complicated and sometimes overwhelming having to choose the right lighting option for your home. That’s where we come in! As a local furniture store, we have one of the largest selections of unique lighting in the Southeast. You could say we know a thing or two about lighting – that’s why we’ve come up with a few tips to help you choose the best lighting for your home. 

Assess The Natural Light

Before you start picking out lighting options, it’s best to assess the natural lighting that’s in the room you’re re-lighting. By assessing the natural light, you can get a feel for how bright or dim the lighting needs to be. If the room you’re re-lighting has a lot of natural light, then it’s best to work around that and add accent lighting where it’s necessary. 

Choose Fixtures That Flow

Whether you’re adding hanging lights over the island in the kitchen or need new lamps for your living room, it’s best to choose a lighting fixture that flows with the design of the room you’re in. You don’t want something dramatic in a bedroom like you would in a dining or living room area. 

Each Room Is Different

Bathrooms require more lighting than a closet or bedroom, and sometimes other rooms can get by with a lamp or two depending on how often they’re used. Try choosing lighting options that are bright enough to make a difference during the day and not too distracting at night. 

Of course, these are only suggestions. Our interior design team here at Augustus & Carolina would be more than happy to assist you in choosing the perfect lighting for your home. Our choices are unusual and beautiful, but you’ll appreciate the craftsmanship and quality of our great lighting values. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions you may have!
