Lighting décor is an essential part of your home’s interior design that can transform the ambiance of a room instantly. Functional, yet decorative, lighting décor should satisfy both of those basic requirements. If you are looking for lighting décor options to transform your house into a warm and cozy home while being functional and decorative, here are seven lighting solutions that can cover every single room of your home. These lighting solutions may even be layered and used together in the same room to create the ultimate warm and cozy room.
Pendant lighting is one of the most commonly used lighting fixtures because of its versatility. A pendant light is a single light fixture that is suspended by a cord, chain, or rod from the ceiling. They normally direct the direction of light downwards onto a surface or object. They come in a variety of sizes, materials, and designs. Some are so intricate, they can be used as a statement piece in the room.

Commonly used in kitchens, they are popular over long countertops, kitchen islands, and breakfast nooks. To create a warm and cozy effect, select a lighting design that is slightly rustic with hues of brown, orange, and yellow.
Similar to pendant lighting, chandelier lighting is also suspended by a cord, chain, or rod from the ceiling. The main difference between pendant lights and chandelier lights is that pendant lights is a single drop of the light element from a single fixture from the ceiling. Chandelier lights are often multiple branches of light elements that drop from the single fixture. Chandeliers are often large enough to illuminate an entire room. Due to the decorative element of ornate chandeliers and its sheer size, they are often installed as showpieces in entryways, living rooms, dining rooms, or lounges.
Chandeliers come in two styles: classic and modern. Classic chandeliers use crystals that reflect warm light around the room. Modern chandelier styles can be more minimalistic and do not use crystals but LED lights that may give out a more bluish light than the warm and cozy yellow lights of the classic chandelier.
Accent lighting are versatile lighting décor that concentrates focused illumination on a particular area or item, such as a piece of artwork, a portrait, a flower arrangement, or collectibles. In home interior design, accent lighting can also be used along the base of the wall to light up a dark stairway or hallway. Functional and decorative, accent lighting is a very versatile piece of interior design and can be installed on either ceiling or wall.
One of the most forgotten areas of home decoration, is your garden or patio. Proper landscape lighting can also create a warm and cozy environment for your outdoor living area. If you have a pool, hot tub, water gardens, fountains, or outdoor seating and eating areas, landscape lighting can bring a coziness and warmth to an evening night spent in your garden or patio.
Recessed lights are light fixtures that are installed into the ceiling via a hollow opening. The light is concentrated in a downward direction with the effect of a floodlight or small spotlight onto a surface or objects. Recessed light is a permanent fixture that requires a bit of heavy duty installation but can be installed virtually in any room for a warm and cozy effect. You can install recessed lights in your bedroom, your kitchen, dining room, living room, a small minibar, etc.
When choosing recessed lighting, choose a warm hue as opposed to a daylight hue. Daylight lighting has a bluish hue that counters the warm and cozy theme given off by browns, oranges, and yellows.
A wall scone, or wall lights, is a type of light fixture that has no base but is fixed to the wall for support. The light is usually directed upwards, but some can have a degree of angle adjustability. Wall scones are usually installed in pairs to frame an object, such as a doorway, a hall way, a bed, or a couch. Although the original wall scone design came from the wall scones to hold torches and candles, many wall scone designs are now available, ranging from rustic to minimalistic to ornate. You are bound to find a design that is the right fit for your home.
A task light focuses an increased illumination on an area where a task could be accomplished.
