Statement lighting is a light fixture, fitting or accessory that is eye-catching, bold and unique. It stands out and can be the centrepiece of an entire room, creating an atmosphere that people want to spend time in. It makes a statement about who you are and what you like.

Today we will look at various types of statement lighting fixtures before discussing where in the home they could have the most impact.

Statement lighting fixtures

We can categorise statement lighting under the following:

1. Ceiling lights
2. Wall lights
3. Light bulbs
4. Lampshades

Statement ceiling lights

Ceiling lights can be fixed close to the ceiling or suspended on a wire, cord or chain. Chandeliers also fall under this category of lighting.

They will generally be found in the centre of a room, or over a dining area in a dining kitchen, and catch the eye as soon as you walk in.
