How to use lighting in small spaces


Living in a small space doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style. In fact, if you’re clever about it, you can actually use lighting to make your space appear larger and give it a greater sense of depth and dimension.

Wall Lights. Wall sconces are your best friend when it comes to adding serious style to a small space.

LED Strip Lighting. An absolute lifesaver for small spaces, strip lighting is so flexible it can fit under cabinets, behind televisions, around bedheads – anywhere you need subtle, ambient lighting. These are also a great choice for renters as many strip lights have an adhesive back so you can stick the strips of light anywhere you want and take them with you when you move.

Track lighting. It’s a big design trend in 2019 and a lot of designers are using track lighting rather than pendants in kitchens and lounges. They are discreet, and you can angle the light where you need it without overwhelming the space.

Table Lamps. You’ll never go wrong with a well-placed table or floor lamp and they’re still the easiest, most affordable way to add light and style to any space. You can place floor lamps near corners to eliminate dark recesses.

Go vertical with floor lamps. When you’re short on square footage, take advantage of height instead. Floor lamps are ideal for apartments lacking in area because they provide plenty of light without taking up much needed floor or table space.

The pendant. Pendants pack a real design punch and are great for task lighting. If you’re ceiling is a little low, you’ll need to look for a close-to-ceiling design or track lighting, which gives you the look, without cluttering the space.
