Scandi Styling - How to make your home feel bigger
If you’re fed up with waiting for the lighter evenings, then fast forward brightening up your home with new Scandi lighting!
We transformed our new build kitchen a year ago from a very bland, magnolia farmhouse style to crisp white shaker style cabinets with sleek black handles. Our original kitchen was already chosen when we reserved our new build home and just didn’t fit with our style. This is our second new build home and one of the biggest items to transform a space is good lighting, which we just didn’t have it in our kitchen. We had two gloomy builders issue bulbs, which we’d hastily covered with very basic black shades when we moved in. The result? The light was concentrated in one place and the corners of the room felt dull and uninspiring.
We’ve transformed the space with the Supa 3 stick semi flush ceiling lights and the difference it makes to the room is incredible! The space feels bigger and brighter and makes a real statement. Our style is a mix of scandi monochrome with a bit of modern farmhouse thrown in, and the Supa compliments this so well. Crisp, clean lines combined with a modern but timeless design make the Supa a real eye-catching feature, as well as being practical. The ceiling heights in new builds are renowned for being relatively low, and this super stylish fitting draws the eye up, making the room feel bigger but the semi flush design means that headroom isn’t an issue.
If you’ve got higher ceilings or room above a staircase or bed, then the Supa range also includes the lower 6 stick light, which is versatile and has adjustable cross bar arms. The range also includes a stunning 4 stick table lamp that would make any side table superior. The whole range personifies the pure, timeless, and simple aesthetic of Scandinavian design.
Scandi bathroom styling
Sticking with the scandi, monochrome feel, the Cross 3 light semi flush ceiling light would be a feature in any room but has an IP44 rating so it can be used in wet areas such as a bathroom.
If the appeal of the Supa range is due to the stunning globe dome, then the Preston range may also be up your street! Featuring a semi flush ceiling light and also a wall light, the Preston range could work either as a stand-alone feature or fitted together as a matching range. Similar to the Cross 3 light, the Preston range is also suitable for use in bathrooms.
The Scandinavian design doesn’t have to stop in your home, with a range of outdoor lighting also available to bring your own style outdoors. Spring is not only the perfect time to tidy up the flowerbeds but also invest in stylish outdoor illumination to make the garden usable and inviting all evening. The Lancaster range features both wall lights and post lights and is IP44 rated, ideal for showcasing your outdoor living space at dusk.
Another stunning range for the outdoors is the Wye range, compromising of sleek wall lights and up and down lights. They’re not only suitable for outside but are also salt corrosion resistant, ideal for homes by the coast.
