A Guide to Contemporary Lighting: The Best Fixtures For Every Room in Your House

Decorating your home is an exciting ordeal, but that doesn't mean it can't also be difficult. Lighting in particular has the potential to either bring the look of a room together or throw everything out of balance. It's that powerful.

Yet, choosing the right lighting fixtures can quickly become an overwhelming task, especially if your style changes from room to room. While lighting trends may come and go, there is always one fail-safe style you can turn to: contemporary lighting.

Simple, yet eye-catching, contemporary lighting fixtures are unique in that they typically blend in with almost any home decor style. They offer beautiful design elements, clarity, and sophistication to any room, and can be described as a better version of natural lighting.

If contemporary lighting sounds like the perfect complement to your home, keep reading to see some of the best ways to make a statement throughout every room of your house.

Living Room Lighting Fixtures

Your living room is the busiest room in your house, especially when you have guests over. This space is generally where people entertain when they host events, but it's also the go-to place for families to relax after work or on the weekends.

Your living room lighting fixtures should be a statement piece, but they should also offer adjustable brightness so you can control how cool or warm your lighting is. For something that is equal parts practical and pretty, customers turn to our Artika Andalee Oval Chandelier. This sleek, oval-shaped statement piece offers great versatility and comes with adjustable cables and variable brightness.

Bathroom Lighting Fixtures

Bathrooms are one of the most underrated rooms in a house, but they're also an area that gets a lot of foot traffic on a daily basis. This is where you spend time taking care of yourself, so it should be a space that is both clean and beautiful. Lighting can play a significant part in how you feel when you're getting ready for work or a big event.

No one wants harsh lighting in their bathrooms, so our customers turn to vanity and ceiling lights that reflect their style while also helping them look their best. Artika's Bubble Cube 3-Light Vanity Light features small, luminous bubbles that take the glow of your lights to the next level. We also sell WiFi-enabled ceiling lights, like our Pluto Artika Smart Light, that can be controlled by voice-enabled technology. You can adjust your lighting and even listen to music while you're in the bathroom.

Bedroom Lighting Fixtures

While no one other than you will likely see much of your bedroom lighting, it's still important that it's both aesthetically pleasing and functional for you. If you want a larger statement piece for above your bed, Artika's Honeymoon 9-Light Pendant features a beaded crystal shade that works to diffuse light so that it's soft and clear. Or, for something that's a bit more subtle, we also have unique ceiling light fixtures as well. Artika's Prelude Semi-Flush Mount Ceiling Light has three vintage-style firmament bulbs that are positioned horizontally within wire mesh, giving it a distinct look that will liven up your bedroom space.

These are just a few of the contemporary lighting options available online, but you can shop our online store to see more. Your lighting is just one facet of your home decor, but it's often what gets the most compliments when people come over — so make sure you have lighting you're proud of.
