Making a statement with wooden beam lights

Shopping for the perfect lighting solution for your home is a great opportunity to express your style. You want something that will not only provide adequate lighting but also add to the overall look and feel of your space.

Wooden beam lights have become increasingly popular in recent years, offering a rustic and warm alternative to traditional lighting fixtures. But where should you install these statement pieces? In this article, we’ll explore some of the best areas for installation and how to make the most of your wooden beam lights.

 

Adding warmth and character

Wooden beam lights can add significant warmth and character to the most important spaces in your home. Hanging these fixtures above a dining table, kitchen island or in a living room creates a dramatic statement piece that is sure to grab attention. Consider choosing the size of your wooden beam lights according to the size of the room. For instance, in larger rooms, you'll need a more significant fixture to make a statement.

Let's look at some of the most popular areas for installation and provide tips on how to make the most of your new statement piece:

Dining rooms

Installing wooden beam lights above a dining table creates a cosy and intimate ambiance. The warm glow of the lights will highlight the food on the table and create a focal point in the room. If you have a large dining room, consider installing multiple beams to create a dramatic effect.

 

Kitchens

Wooden beam lights are perfect for kitchens, especially if you have an island. Hanging a beam above the island will not only create a stunning visual statement but also provide much-needed task lighting for food preparation. If you have low ceilings, consider installing the beams as wall sconces instead.

 

Living room

The living room is the heart of the home and a great place to show off your wooden beam lights. Hanging them above a couch or in a corner will create a warm and inviting space for family and friends to gather. If you have high ceilings, consider installing large beams to make a dramatic statement.

 

Bedrooms

A wooden beam light in a bedroom creates a cosy and romantic atmosphere. A set of wood beam lights installed brings relaxing vibe while making the space look polished. This creates that warm, welcoming ambiance ideal for a great night's sleep. Think of light bulbs crafted in understated hues to create that soothing ambience that we all crave for our bedrooms.

 

Outdoor spaces

Consider installing wooden beam lights in your outdoor spaces, taking inspiration from the trees and wood in your own back garden. They're perfect for creating a cosy outdoor dining area or a relaxing lounge space. Place them above a patio or deck to create an inviting atmosphere for your next outdoor get-together.

 

Consider sconces

You can install the wooden beams as wall sconces instead, which will create a cosy ambiance while providing adequate lighting. Choosing this installation method for your wooden beam fixtures can add depth to your rooms while keeping the counterspace clear. They work great in bedrooms, bathrooms, or hallways where space may be limited.

 

Home office lighting solution

Another interesting place to install wooden beam lighting is in a home office. Lighting can affect productivity, and with this dark and cosy ambience, you'll have a more focused and relaxed atmosphere. Mixing both wooden and metal materials to create a more substantial fixture that complements the decor of the room can make a perfect home office for any professional.

Adding wooden beam lights to any room can have a significant impact on the overall look and feel. From dining rooms to home offices, these fixtures can add a warm and cosy ambience with a lot of character. They can become statement pieces or accents as desired, depending on your preferences. There are several different ways to incorporate wooden beams into your lighting design, from hanging fixtures to sconces. Choose one that best suits your space and enjoy the striking effects of these classic and stylish fixtures.
