If you’re planning to update your home lighting, you have to make sure that you use the right type of light for the space and the ambience you want to create in the room. The proper use of light, whether it is natural or coming from a source, can wider the living space and equally serve as a great interior statement. Here at Warings we understand the importance of lighting, as we know it can turn a room into a warm and inviting space. Thus, we have come up with some tips and advice on how to choose the right lighting for your home.

While appearing decorative at first glance, considering the striking prints on our lampshades for example, the lighting at Warings Lifestore is first and foremost functional. We have gathered some of our favourite items – from lamps to fairy lights to illustrate our ideas.

Ambient lights

This type of lighting usually provides the space with an overall illumination, without focusing on any specifics. As this is quite common type of lighting we bring you suggestions on how to update this in a stylish and tasteful way – by using the right lampshade.

Task lamps

We further look at floor and table lamps, or as we prefer to call them ‘Task lamps’. These can be adjusted according to your need – if you’re planning to read a book on the sofa for example, use a floor lamp and situate it next to where you’re sitting. Table lamps function very similarly, the only difference is they can be placed on the coffee or side table, and vary in terms of design and shades.

Dimmers are a must

Dimmers add to the oomph of the lighting in a room, and save energy too! Our Orbis lamp with marble effect and a dimmer comes in two colours – white or black, to best fit the interior. Effortlessly chic, the dimming option on this lamp will take it from task light to an intimate glow. The light itself features a warming amber tint.

Don’t ignore the exterior

Use fairy lights in your home – pop them around the walkway, in the garden, even adore bushes with them. These are sure to create an intimate ambience! Another way of using fairy lights, while being in sync with the current trend, is popping them into a glass terrarium to create a customized and unique display! Screen Shot 2017-10-20 at 10.11.30.png
