Lighting is an integral part of any home. Cool lamps can do wonders to illuminate a dim space, enhancing interiors and transforming awkward corners. However, lighting often goes for a toss because homeowners focus on decorating their interiors based on natural lighting. 

But what about the night? Trust experts. Today, not only is lighting a functional requirement but a decorative one also. Choosing the right light fixture and angle placement is important for optimal results. After all, you deserve a home that lights up your life!

Types of Indoor Light Fixtures You Should Invest In

The residential lighting fixture market has grown immensely over the past decade. Thanks to innovation, we are now spoiled with choices. From basic tube lights, we have come a long way. The introduction of smart lighting has further intensified the competition. However, while shopping for cool lamps for your room, you should first consider the basics. Apart from cool lamps, here are some of the different types of lights you will find in the market:

  • Recessed lights
  • Track lights
  • Pendant lights
  • Wall sconces
  • Ceiling lights or chandeliers
  • Task lights
  • Floor lamps
  • Cove light or ambient light

Now that you know all the basic light fixture types, check out the ways you can use them in your home. Here are seven cool lamps for your room.

Cool Floor Lamps To Amp Up The Oomph

If not planned properly, empty corners could look extremely awkward. If you also experience such a problem, place cool floor lamps. Indoor plants are usually the first choice for many homeowners. But, take it from the experts, corners are often not suitable for plants due to lack of sunlight and air. So, the best alternative is a chic floor lamp. It can be used in the living room, dining room or even bedroom. Take inspiration from the images below. The floor lamp in the living room is quite unique with its attached bar setup. The room also features stunning ceiling lights, a dome-shaped pendant light and recessed lights.

Recessed And Ambient Lights Are Cool Lamp Ideas For Illumination

If you don’t want to invest a ton on expensive decorative lighting and are looking for some budget-friendly options, recessed lights and cove lights should be your choice. Recessed lights are tiny indoor lights that are often fully contained inside the ceiling. These lights have replaced conventional tube lights. Recessed fixtures are much more energy-efficient and illuminate your room brightly. On the other hand, cove lights are used to highlight certain areas. These lights are commonly seen in false ceilings, under kitchen racks and even inside cupboards.
