Bathroom Lighting Design: The right way to do it

Bathroom Lighting Design: The right way to do it

Bathroom Lighting Design: The right way to do it

Standalone baths, double vanities, steam showers, and heated tiles are among the top trends of the modern bathrooms of today; but what about Designer Lighting? As any interior designer would tell you, a bathroom should be functional, yet also a place of self-indulgence, tranquillity and peace.

As seen here in this master en suite, our modern NewYork Odeon Oasis Wall Sconce in a 60cm height is paired to a horizontal mirror across a double vanity. The wall sconce available in clear or smoke crystal helps to bring a sense of opulence and glamour to your morning and evening rituals.

 

Styling tips: Don’t be afraid to play with different finishes and explore shape as a design element in particular. Classic and timeless feature lighting is an eye-catching way to move away from sharp angles. See our Hamptons inspired and Orb range of Wall Sconces in silver plated or dark bronze.

Popular for bathrooms, chandeliers or pendant lights above baths are a stunning way to add feature lighting, however they do require special attention is paid to meeting Australian lighting regulations – as the experts, ask Designer Chandelier about this today.

 

Exploring an old world romance with classical and provincial styling. See here our French Provincial 20 Arm Chandelier in a Wrought Iron finish, note how this feature lighting works in with brass tap ware and a feature black beveled mirror and marble vanity with custom joinery.

Considering a bathroom renovation? Carefully consider the wash and tone of the lighting. Down lights will provide adequate task lighting, but they do not set the mood of your bathroom - this is what we do at Designer Chandelier!

Warm it up: Warmer tones capture attention of Interior Designers

Warm it up: Warmer tones capture attention of Interior Designers

 

The insider scoop is greys and whites are out, in favour of warmer browns and more earthy tones. With that comes an reoccurring love affair with brass, bronze and smoked home and commercial lighting fixtures.

 

This winter has been particularly cold and when it’s cold we love nothing more than to snuggle up on the couch – and while the skeptics may think of interiors that feature brown as a throwback to 70’s, in fact rediscovering how browns can be a great way of creating layering and depth to your home is crucial for those considering a renovation in 2018-2019.

BRASS

A traditional material for lighting, brass is more yellowy and golden than Bronze. Brass can be a great accent to pop against brightly coloured furniture or in the case of browns can become more of a feature against a blend of complimentary and muted tones. Rich and Luxurious Chandelier and Lighting Collections in a Brass finish are the Aria Hampton, Americana, Bohemian Prague, and Florence Basket Chandeliers.

BRONZE

Bronze can be either light or dark for a rich warm finish. Darker Bronze can be more suitable for achieving an industrial look and can really set the trend. More modern in appearance than a brass finish. For Bronze and Copper Chandelier Lighting Collections, search Hampton Orb, Aria Hampton, Americana, French Basket, and Regency.

SMOKED

Smoke is new age popular and a move away from a traditional clear look. A relatively new look for lighting, Smoke captures the essence of burned wood  and many other accents. Search ‘Smoke’ for Chandeliers with a smoked frame and Smoked Crystal Chandeliers like the Maria Theresa, Infinity, Empress, Designer Princess, and Oasis Chandelier Collections.

 

Seen here a charming and inviting way to style your home, The Hampton Orb in a Dark Bronze finish as the main overhead lighting with contemporary sofas and luxe finishes.

Aurora: New Arrivals in Contemporary lighting

Aurora: New Arrivals in Contemporary lighting

The latest to the Designer Chandelier Catalogue, the ‘Aurora’ collection will be available In-Store and Online from August 2018. Diamond Cut® crystal prisms are presented in a sophisticated geometric pattern, with the frame itself triple chrome plated. Wall sconces, pendant chandeliers, oval bar lights and halo ring chandeliers are some of the different types of lighting available within the collection.

The styling of this home, featuring the Aurora Pendant Chandelier Width: 53cm focuses on Colour and Line to meet its contemporary brief. Here the lighting choice is inclusive and welcoming. The use of a single light over the coffee table helps to distinguish the space from other common areas. Parted from the kitchen and dining room by a dividing wall and feature fireplace, the living room is styled in neutral greys, mocha, taupe and blush, with the only metallic being introduced through the choice of lighting fixture. One of the fantastic things about this chrome pendant with crystal, compared to a pendant without, is how it will refract the light that beams in from those stunning bi-fold doors. The Aurora is a simple yet bold hero statement to any contemporary space.

Kitchen Lighting: The Right Way to do it

Sprawling island benches, custom joinery, natural stone, these are the trends of kitchens today; but what about Designer Lighting? What lighting is best to feature in a kitchen? While down lights are a simple choice, another option is two to three 10-60cm chandeliers or pendant lights. Chandeliers like these Orbs give off plenty of light and elevate the ‘heart of the home’ to make that perfect first impression. 

What is so clever and beautiful about this design is how classic it is, while also tying in modern colourings of medium to dark greys. The Silver Plated Hampton Orb works well here because it picks up and bounces light from the walls; lightening the space, and working within the rest of the open plan living room. The broad bench top means the lights are well and truly out of head height and remain a decorative and distinctive feature of this kitchen, inviting you in to take up a seat.

Styling Tips:

Measure your Island Benches and work out how you'll use them. Think of what will work with the rest of your tap wares and fixtures, will they be chrome, stainless steel, brass, copper, or black?
