HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT RUSTIC LIGHTING FOR YOUR HOME
Rustic Lighting Options
Rustic lighting options for the home generally fall into three distinct categories: Overall or ambient, task and accent lighting. As you can imagine, overall lighting is the most general term. It often represents the light that any room receives when you flick switch upon entering. It can be glaring, adequate but boring, uninspired or insufficient, but it is often supplied by a single overhead fixture in the center of the room.
In well-planned rooms, however, ambient lighting can be imaginative and individualized, used to supplement natural light and to enhance the surroundings. That should be your goal, and it is entirely possible to achieve without too much effort. What is takes, however, is a bit of planning. Putting light in your life should be a matter of shining it where it is needed. Supplement overhead rustic lighting with well-placed lamps where needed.
Look to the Ceiling
In a large room, you have the ability to make a statement with lighting, as well as to shed light, in a real as well as figurative sense, on the entire room. A centrally located forged metal or antler chandelier in a rustic setting will immediately set the tone for furnishings and accessories, and might be all the rustic lighting that is needed for cozy evenings in front of a roaring fire. If you are lucky enough to have perimeter room lighting in the form of recessed cans or track-mounted fixtures, so much the better. By installing dimmer switches, you can vary the mood lighting from bright to subdued with the flick of a finger. Even ceiling fans can supply ambient lighting in a room, and serve both a decorative and utilitarian purpose.
Ceiling-mount fixtures are also standard lighting fare in entries, kitchens and dining rooms, and they can be refined or rustic, depending on your decor. In a rustic setting, think hand-forged metal, distressed finishes, patina finishes, or various metals combined with imaginative forms; amber-toned glass or shades crafted of translucent crumpled paper, pierced metal or painted wood chip material.
Just because you tend toward the rustic in your decor, however, don’t think that you have to choose a heavy, dark ceiling fixture. If you love the look of hand-blown glass, feel free to select a stunning hand-blown glass chandelier for your living room. Just make sure it is overscale in size and suspended by antique finish chain. It will provide a personalized look in addition to providing the necessary light.
Choose for Function
Be aware of the quality of light as well as the style. In a bathroom, you need sufficient light for grooming, but extremely bright light in a hallway may be unpleasant as well as unnecessary. Wall sconces can be serviceable in either location, but perfect solutions depend on individual needs. We have a variety of options to make the task of choosing new or replacement fixtures easy for every room in your home. Whether you have a log cabin or a stone castle, we can supply your desires for rustic lighting fixtures to blend with the rest of your decor, put ample light in every corner of your space, and be easy on your budget as well.
Add a Bit of Whimsy!
Never neglect the fun part when choosing accent lighting for your home. Express your interests and your personality by choosing a floor lamp inspired by bear cubs climbing a tree, or select a table lamp crafted from an antique fire extinguisher or rustic tree stump. Add a Mexican metal and glass star to your decor, celebrate the southwest with pottery sconces, or delight a child with a canoe-paddle lamp.
Remember, it’s your life and the spotlight is on you!
