Small Light Big Light

Do you live in a small space like me?

Is your entrance big enough for one person at a time?

Is the ceiling just average hight? That some days when you're wearing your high heels you feel you could really touch the ceiling?

Don't worry, some pretty awesome things come in small packages.

Do you have small hallways at home, and not so sure what kind of lighting to put up there?
When you bring lighting into your home, make sure you measure as with anything else we do when designing any space, scale is so important.

You don't want to put too large of a light fixture that it swallows the room or even worse if its hanging too low, then people could hit it.

 You also don't want too much of a small fixture that its lost or barely giving any light at all.

So here are a few of my favs. I love bling, so I will share these ones first

Crystals are also great attractors to good energy Good Chi as it is believed in FenShui, so make sure your entrance has a Crystal mini chandelier or pendant or even a semi flush mount.

 Your walk-in closet? Do you think it could use something a little bit more interesting than the builder's fixture?

In hallways try to avoid lighting that is dangling too low, consider movement, kids if you have them and know how they just love to jump in the air and reach hights, last thing you'd want is a hand touching a lightbulb or anything that could shock them.

Have you ever thought of using a mini chandelier in your walk-in closet? Or perhaps in your powder room?

Your home could be a big home, but has small spaces - Like a small foyer, a small side entrance, a small powder room, a small mud room etc....

 When selecting your fixtures, make sure you check the box for the watts it will be giving you, last thing you want is poor lighting, many of these Small Light fixtures can give up to 100watts and that is big light in a small space.

I Hope you have found this small posting to be fun useful and of help to you when you go shopping for your lighting.

Till the next tip, have a good one ♥
