People often underestimate the kind of effect lighting can have on their decor. Saying that lighting adds life to your beautiful abodes is definitely an understatement. Lighting is a crucial component when it comes to designing your space, and while the design styles and the build of the fixtures were previously key priorities, people are now inclined to focus on the functionality quotient too.

Sit back and take a look at everything you can do to get breathtaking decor.
Statement lighting is a must
Statement lighting started trending last year, and while we thought it was a fad that would fade out quickly, the trend has actually stayed and struck the right chords with homeowners. Statement lighting is all about flaunting larger-than-life lighting designs that are dramatic, elegant, oversized and bring their eccentric aura and charm to your living space.
It is a common notion that statement lighting only has to be overhead lighting designs. But there’s absolutely no restriction to what your statement lighting can be. While statement chandeliers, ceiling lights and pendant lights do stand out from the crowd, cluster wall lights, table lamps and floor lamps have proven to be quite beautiful statement designs too.

Art Deco designs for that nostalgic touch
Art Deco style originated back in the 1920s, and even a century later, the design language has barely faded out. While Art Deco lighting designs come with their own charm and flair, it is primarily the nostalgic element that gets to the people. Over the years, the definition of Art Deco has evolved as people kept tweaking the design style for their convenience.
What has stayed constant over the years is the geometric and angled patterns associated with Art Deco since the beginning. The design style also boasts a significant use of reflective surfaces like mirrors, chrome or lacquer. Jewel tones and shimmering metallics work well as accents in this design style. Simply put, Art Deco is the finest blend of what’s new and what’s old.
