There are spaces in your home where an overhead ambient fixture just isn’t necessary. These spaces may be part of a bigger room, or they may be rooms where a ceiling fixture was never installed. This can be especially true in older homes that were added onto, or that didn’t have full electrical wiring when they were built.
At Masterpiece Lighting in Atlanta, we can help you find the perfect lighting design for your home, even if that means illuminating smaller spaces with floor and table lamps. If you’re looking for unique ways to brighten a certain space, then visit one of our showrooms today!
Your Reading Nook
Your reading nook is likely a part of your living room or family room, but it’s set in the corner of the room. You’ve placed the perfect easy chair or small sofa there, and you love sitting down with a good book for an hour or two whenever you can. If the nook is too far removed from the center of the room, then it might not receive the light it needs for reading. Putting a floor lamp behind the chair can solve that problem, but make sure that the light comes over your shoulder, instead of above your head. A lamp with an ample arc in its design should suffice, and our staff can help you find the perfect option.
When your home was built, there may not have been a walk-in closet attached to the master bedroom. A previous owner may have added one, but they may not have added the necessary wiring to install a dedicated overhead light fixture. If there’s an outlet in the closet, then putting a small table or desk lamp on one of the closet shelves can help you see while you’re picking out clothes in the morning, or putting things away at night. This might be a temporary lighting solution until you add that ambient fixture, but lamplight can be a great choice for your walk-in closet.
An Attic Space
If your home has an attic that you’ve renovated into living space, then you’ve likely added dedicated fixtures for adequate lighting. However, it may have been too costly or too difficult to add wiring to the upper level of your house, so you opted for a few in-floor outlets instead. Depending on the size of the space, a well-placed table and floor lamp can provide enough illumination. You may be planning on using the attic space for a spare bedroom or as a craft room, and whatever the case may be, lamps can make the room more cozy and inviting.
The expert staff at Masterpiece in Atlanta and Roswell are here to help you find the perfect lamps for all the smaller spaces in your home. If you have a unique lighting design question, or you’re trying to figure out how to best illuminate a small space, then a lamp might be the perfect solution.
