Here’s a Bright Idea: Use Statement Lighting in Your Home

If you've been searching for ways to amp up your home's design in a simple way, then prepare to have a light bulb moment! Statement lighting can both brighten and add beauty to just about any room. If you've already thought about putting a new light fixture in your space but haven't quite gotten around to it yet, you're probably struggling with picking a design.

If that's the case, then you're in luck! We've got seven different statement lighting ideas to help you make your decision. Let's get started:

1. Modern Farmhouse Fixtures

There's a lot of variety when it comes to modern farmhouse light fixtures, and you can't go wrong with any of them. From black cage-style chandeliers with visible light bulbs to wooden box-shaped fixtures with black light bulb holders, the key to getting this style right is using minimalistic and simplistic designs as a focal point without drawing attention away from the rest of the room.

2. Globe Pendants

Either fully clear or tinted circular fixtures can work wonders for an elegant and chic upgrade to your room's lighting. Illuminate your home with a combination of both modern and vintage designs by hanging a light that adds unique charm and ambiance. This light fixture will certainly draw the eye of anyone the minute they step into the room.

3. Elegant Chandeliers

If you like the finer things in life and want to vamp up your space with jaw-dropping details, opt for a light fixture fit for royalty. Choose between white or crystal options, or go bold and pick a pop of color for your living room or dining room. You can also put a more casual, shabby chic spin on the chandelier's design by choosing a more rustic choice to dress down the room a little.

4. Dandelion Lights

You've seen these fluffy, white blooms dotted throughout your yard during the summer, and now you can bring them inside! Dandelion lights are round fixtures (often made from crystal) that are illuminated on all sides and look like flowers when hung from the ceiling. Either adorn your entryway with these beauties or spice up your kitchen by hanging them above your island counter.

5. Woven Fixtures

If your home is on the boho side of the design spectrum, these woven basket fixtures will be just what you need to light up your life. Pick from multiple sizes and shapes to bring an earthy and fun touch to your space. Help guests feel even more welcome by creating a warm and inviting room with lights that add just the right amount of funky fashion. Woven fixtures work great in reading nooks, above kitchen tables or in your bohemian bedroom.

6. Oversized Floor Lamps

Shed some light on your home's decor by placing an oversized lamp in a room corner or beside your favorite chair. Make your lamp the focal point by choosing one that grabs your attention and ties the room together. Some great options include curved gold or silver fixtures with brightly colored lamp shades, lights with glass bases and white shades, wooden three-legged lamps that resemble an art easel or fully black or metal lamps in an abstract shape — the choices are limitless!

7. Bold Table Lamps

Maybe you want a lamp that can sit nicely on a table or counter. Well, you're in luck because there are some beautiful options that steal the show. Pick a bold design and place it on your bedroom dresser, the corner of your kitchen counter, in your living room beside your regular reading spot or on a bedside table in your guest bedroom. Wherever you choose to put it, a table lamp can make a beautiful and bright focal point.
