With the clocks changed, the temperature dropping and the storms brewing, winter is very much upon us. It’s time for cosy evenings in, good books, nice wines and a warm, festive home. If you are lucky enough to have a fire place in your living room, then we have some great ideas for lights for fire places that will help turn your living room into the cosiest place to be on a cold winter’s day!
A fire place is one of the main focal points of a living room and you can create some great visual effects using lights for fire places that will bring this area of the room to life, whether you have the fire on or not! Here we are going to focus on types of light that work well as lights for fire place – fairy lights, wall lights, downlights and floor lamps.
Fairy lights are fireplaces are a match made in heaven, especially with the festive season the way. Fairy lights can be fitted along the length of hearths, around the fire place itself or around plants or pictures that are near the fireplace. Here at Love4Lighitng we have some top quality fairy lights available from some of the top brands in the business. There are fairy lights for every budget here and they are available in a multi-coloured or single colour options.
Floor lamps look great fitted either side of a fireplace and we advise going for shorter floor lamps. Tall lamps won’t really work and will look out of place on or around a fire place. It is important to be subtle here and create soft, warm visual effects. There are three floor lamps from Astro Lighting that work brilliantly as lights for fire places – the Marasino, Scopa and Limina plaster finish floor lamps. These three lights are short and discreet and cast light upwards to create gorgeous lighting effects around fire places.
If you have an overhang above your fire, then downlights look fantastic fitted here. They are especially suited to modern interiors and look great when fitted at intervals on an arched overhang. They help to create a warm, cool ambience, even when the fire is not on, so can be enjoyed throughout the summer months too.
And finally, wall lights. When fitted about the hearth, wall lights are a great way to complete the look of your fire place lighting. If you have a picture or mirror hanging above your fireplace, then a wall light fitted either side of this will look great. Here at Love4Lighting we have a fantastic collection of wall lights available in a both traditional and contemporary styles. They are available in a choice of finishes and designs and there is something here for every budget.
