Choosing lights and light fittings for larger rooms and rooms with high ceilings can often be challenging. Whilst rooms with high ceilings add a sense of space and airiness it can be difficult to find the right lighting. Here at Bespoke Lights we have a large collection of lighting for rooms with ceiling heights above 12 foot or 3.5 metres. We specialise in lighting for barn conversions, vaulted ceilings, long drop stairwell lights, church lighting and hotel lighting.
Many people choose light fittings that are too small for rooms with high ceilings - this applies to both the depth and diameter of the light fittings. It pays to have a multi-layered approach to make use of the space and ensure the lights do not get lost. Take a tip from interior designers and think of large tall ceilinged rooms in thirds - the bottom third for furniture, the middle third for art work etc and the top third for lighting. Wall lights can be added to the middle layer to bridge the gap between the ceiling and the furniture and table and floor lamps can be used for accent lighting and extra pools of light in the lower third. Chandeliers and large globe lights that direct light both up and down are an obvious choice for lighting high ceilings. Crystal droplets, prisms and beads will reflect light as will fittings with a polished metal finish. One or more clusters of pendant lights work well in contemporary settings and open plan living areas used for multiple activities.
Many of our light fittings can be adapted by having a longer drop or more lights added. If you need a large light fitting with a long drop for double height ceilings, vaulted rooms or a large stairwell simply contact us here at Bespoke Lights with your requirements and ask for a quote - it's often cheaper than you think.
