Unify your Home with Matching Light Fixtures

Back to Home
Lighting is one of the most important aspects of your home’s style, appeal and safety. Much like new windows or a fresh coat of paint, matching light fixtures can quickly update and beautify the look of your house. Whether replacing a single fixture or all of them, there are a few key basics to focus on for a unified lighting scheme.

Coordinate Light Fixtures with the Décor

Choose lighting fixtures that complement the style and design of your house. Keep lighting streamlines and minimal for modern homes or match ornate lighting fixtures that can compete with more feminine details of a room. For lights that are closer in proximity, match lighting fixtures accordingly.
Lighting fixture colours should balance the design scheme of the home. Bronze, copper and iron light fixtures work well with traditional décor. Shiny brass and chrome fixtures match the sleek style of modern houses, black and bright colours also make a striking statement.
Keep light fixtures on the same scale. A large chandelier will look awkward when paired with smaller pendant lights. The lighting should also match the scale of your home. Coordinate as many elements as possible for a complete unified look.

Pair with Efficient LED Lighting

Despite being small in size, the light-emitting diode, or LED makes a big impact when matching lighting fixtures. One of the biggest advantages of LED technology is its exceptional energy efficiency. When it comes to lighting a home, incandescent bulbs are the least energy efficient, converting only about 10 per cent of electricity into light. LEDs can significantly reduce annual home lighting energy bills and rank high for performance. They deliver bright light, reach full power instantly and can be dimmed. LEDs can also be switched on and off repeatedly without affecting bulb life.
With the phasing out of traditional incandescent light bulbs, LED technology is now at the forefront of modern lighting design. Unlike traditional light bulbs, applications of LED are virtually limitless. These long-lasting and energy-efficient bulbs give off almost no heat, making them perfect for reducing fire risk in the warmest room of the home. Matching LED light fixtures in the kitchen creates layers of light. A good design plan for general, or ambient lighting starts with overhead lights, such as:
  • Ceiling fixtures;
  • Track lighting.
Matching LED light fixtures further enhances the fine details of your home and shines light in just the right places.

Matching Light Fixtures

Using two or more of the same light fixtures creates a clean line of sight. Matching light fixtures can also be done by coordinating with colour – another great way to unify two very different light fixtures.
Lighting is the most defining feature of design quality and is one of the most affordable ways to update your home. Matching light fixtures creates a collected look and helps define a style. When executed well, matching light fixtures creates the perfect balance of light, layers, direction and flow.
