Trend alert! Oversized lighting is H-O-T. You’ll see it in all the design/decor magazines. There is nothing I love more than a good hanging light fixture – it’s an amazing focal point for any room! So if you make it bigger, you make it better.
If you are putting in overhead lighting, err towards too big rather than too small.
Here’s the deal – you walk into a lighting showroom (even it’s Lowe’s) and the lighting looks very large as it hangs from the 30′ ceiling. But guess what? When you get them home and hang them from your 8-9′ ceilings, they are going to look TINY.
Alway, always err towards too big rather than too small.
Make a statement with your lighting. This includes lamps.
