    THG Tip Tuesday

    Today Tradition Home Group has some excellent tips on how to choose the perfect light fixture for your space.

    Lighting is one of the most important design elements in any room. Not only should it provide
    adequate brightness for the room, but it must fit the space and visual atmosphere. The right
    sized fixture is just as important as the look and construction of the light. Fortunately, with the right tips anyone can choose the perfect fixture.

    Front Door Light Fixtures
    Outdoor fixtures are one part of creating the mood for the entire home. Not only should they
    provide proper lighting but must fit the scale of the door itself. To find the right sized light for
    the front entrance, it should be no more than one third of the size of the door or opening for a
    single light and not more than a quarter of the size for dual lights.

    Chandeliers
    Dining rooms call out for a chandelier. Whether modern and sleek or an elegant crystal
    chandelier, the size is the same. Take the size of the room and add the feet together. For
    example, if the room is 10’ by 12’ the chandelier’s width should be 22”. Additionally, make
    sure the width is about 15” shorter than the dining room table.

    For other rooms, the size is really more a matter of taste. The light should not create a visual
    barrier to the room or block design elements, but other than that, choose a light with provides
    good light and fits the style of the space.

    We hope you find our tips this week DE’LIGHT’FUL!
