Interior design trends come and go, but there will always be a need for the perfect lighting to illuminate your space. Lighting changes the dynamics of every room; too bright, and you can suffer from eye strain, too dark and completing daily tasks can become harder.
One of the trends we’re set to see take over the lighting design world this year is oversized lighting. The focus is on making use of the fifth wall, making a statement in your room while ensuring the place is sufficiently lit.
In this blog, we’ll take a look at how you can utilise large lights in your interior, whether it’s your home or commercial space.
Oversized Lighting In The Home
Large lighting fixtures, such as giant pendants, statement flush mounts and dramatic wall lights will be seen in homes more frequently this year, and not only in the living or dining room!
The dramatic fixtures are the perfect centrepiece for any room, whether you want to place them over kitchen islands, above bedside tables or in your hallway.

As well as inside the home, oversized fittings look seamless placed outside the home too! Outdoor lighting has seen vast improvements over the last few years, we’ve invested in our range of IP44 and IP65 lights to allow you to add style to your outdoor areas. Our waterproof and weatherproof range is constantly expanding, including our large and oversized fittings!
Create An Impact In The Dining Room
When it comes to the dining room, the room is predominately used for entertaining, dining or socialising. Lighting helps to set the tone and atmosphere, so why not create a bold statement with a large light?
Large lighting fixtures add an instant focal point, and when it comes to open-plan spaces, for example, if the dining room and kitchen are combined, oversized lights help to create a divide.
One Pendant Or More?
When it comes to the dining room, the light should surround the table as the background disappears, so to speak. Think about placing one statement pendant or a trio of pendants above the dining table, which is the ideal way to shape an atmosphere.

Acting as a centrepiece, our pendant light is placed above the kitchen table, not only to cascade the perfect amount of light, but in addition drawing your eyes to the ceiling.
Go Big In The Games Room
If your home has a games room, bring an authentic vintage charm to the space! The room, which is meant for fun and amusement, is a place where people tend to be more creative when it comes to the design of this room, and this includes the lighting.
Best In Threes
A seamless way to make your games room a picture-perfect space is to incorporate a trio of pendants. Our lights look beautiful when placed in threes, handcrafted with high-quality materials they bring bundles of character and charm, as well as looking beautiful!

Opt For Large In The Living Room
While previously larger lights were left for the dining room and kitchens, they make a perfect addition in the living room. A large pendant in the centre of a living room makes a dramatic impact, setting the tone and mood of the space.
