Spring Spruce up: A Guide to Refreshing Interior Lighting

As the days grow longer and nature awakens from its winter slumber, it’s the perfect time to breathe new life into your home with a fresh approach to lighting.  Spring is all about embracing natural light, incorporating vibrant hues, and creating an inviting atmosphere, these tips will help you transform your space and welcome the season with open arms.

  • Refresh Lamps and Fixtures: Consider swapping out your light bulbs for ones with a higher colour temperature, such as daylight or cool white bulbs. This mimics the natural daylight and can create a more energising and vibrant atmosphere in your home.  Additionally, clean light fixtures and replace any outdated or worn-out fixtures for a fresh and updated look.  Luckily for you, we have a vast range of lighting fittings and fixtures perfect for every home.
  • Introduce Seasonal Accents: Infuse your space with the lively colours of spring.  Consider pastel-coloured or floral-patterned lampshades, colourful picture lights and vibrant pendant lights.  These accents not only complement the season but also add a splash of fun and colour to your room.
  • Bring the Outdoors In: Integrate natural elements into your interior lighting design. Consider pendant ceiling lights or chandeliers with organic materials like wood or seagrass to enhance the spring vibe and add a touch of freshness and vitality to your home.
  • Layered Lighting: Create depth and interest in your space by incorporating layered lighting. Combine ambient, task, and accent lighting to cater to different needs and moods. Use pendant lights, rechargeable table lamps, and wall sconces strategically to illuminate specific areas while maintaining an overall well-lit environment.

  • Adjust Lighting Levels: Install dimmer switches to control the intensity of your lighting. This allows you to adapt the ambiance to different occasions and times of day. Lowering the lights in the evening can create a cosy and relaxed atmosphere, while brighter settings during the day enhance productivity and focus.  All of our bulbs and fittings in The Cranbrook Collection are dimmable when wired to a dimmer circuit, the perfect choice!
  • Accentuate Architectural Features: Highlight the beauty of your home's architectural details by using directed lighting. Consider wall sconces, picture lights or flush ceiling lights to showcase features like mouldings, textured walls, or artwork.  This not only adds visual interest but also enhances the overall aesthetic appeal of your space.
  • Go Green with Energy-Efficient Lighting: Consider switching to energy-efficient LED light bulbs. These bulbs not only last longer but also consume less energy, making them eco-friendly Energy-efficient lighting options come in various colour temperatures, allowing you to find the perfect balance for a bright and inviting springtime atmosphere.
  • Reflective Surfaces: Spring is all about brightness and reflection.  Introduce mirrors or other reflective surfaces strategically to bounce light around the room.  This not only enhances the feeling of spaciousness but also amplifies the impact of your bespoke lighting fixtures (from The Cranbrook Collection of course).
  • Textures Matter: Think about the texture and style of your shades.  Different shades allow for different levels of light diffusion.  A clear glass shade will radiate maximum light, whereas ribbed shades will give a softer, more diffused light.  Fabric light shades swallow more of the light than glass and give a more ambient light so consider this when choosing the shades for your home

As the world outside blossoms, let your home blossom too with the right interior lighting. Spring is a time of rejuvenation, and updating your interior lighting is a simple yet effective way to embrace the season's energy.  By maximising natural light, refreshing fixtures, introducing seasonal accents, and experimenting with different lighting layers, you can create a welcoming and vibrant atmosphere that complements the freshness of spring.
