Illuminate Your Style: A Guide to Choosing Custom Lighting Fixtures

The right lighting can transform any space in your home. It sets the tone for the room, creates the right ambience and highlights your décor. Custom lighting fixtures take this idea further by adding a unique and personal touch to your home — but with so many options available, it can be overwhelming to know where to start. 

At Z Two Lights, we understand that custom lights can place the perfect finishing touches on your home’s furnishing. In this guide, we will look at how custom lighting fixtures can elevate your home and provide tips on selecting the perfect fixtures to suit your style and needs.

Identify your style and needs

Before selecting custom lighting fixtures, it is essential to identify your style and needs. Take note of the aesthetic of your home and the current lighting fixtures. This includes considering the activities in the room and the kind of lighting required.

For example, a kitchen will need bright, functional lighting, while a bedroom may require softer, moodier lighting that can ease you into a more relaxed state. By identifying these factors, you can select custom fixtures that complement your style and meet your specific needs.

Consider materials, shape and size

Suppose you have a modern home with sleek lines and minimalistic décor. In that case, you may want to opt for fixtures with clean lines and materials such as metal or glass. Conversely, if you have a more traditional home or love vintage décor, fixtures of wood or brass with intricate details may suit you better. 

The size and shape of your custom fixture should balance the room’s proportions without overwhelming the space — think of it as a complementary fixture rather than the room’s centre of focus.

Think of layered lighting

Where you can, try to layer ambient, accent and task lighting when you can. Here are the definitions of all three:

  • Task lighting — the functional lighting used for specific tasks such as cooking, reading or studying. 
  • Ambient lighting — provides general lighting for the room.
  • Accent lighting — spotlights specific areas or objects, adding interest to the room. 

Speak to a lighting professional or an interior designer to see how you can layer all three throughout your home.
