2022 Guide: How to use ceilings in your decor

We need many more lamps in our decor than we often think. Ceiling lamps, table lamps and wall lamps for both the bedroom, living room, kitchen and the bathroom should be in every home. To create a good light, it is almost indispensable to have ceiling lights in your home. A ceiling is a particularly good source for getting a nice light in the room. We guide you to decorate with ceilings.

What you need to know about ceilings

Ceiling lamps are not a new invention. You may recognize it from the cottage or from the stairwells in the classic Copenhagen buildings, where it illuminates the floors between the individual halls. We believe that the regained popularity is due to both function and form.

You may not find a lamp that is as versatile as a ceiling lamp. Originally, the lamp was intended to hang from the ceiling, and as the name suggests, ‘ceiling’ in French means ‘ceiling’. With varying sizes, it can hang almost anywhere - but most often it is seen in a size around 30 cm. This size is ideal for hanging in smaller rooms. It can be in the bathroom, where it does not take up much space and does not require much height, as it is mounted directly on the ceiling. The Italian Murano ceilings from the 1970s are available in several sizes and at Copenhagen Venice you can usually find them from 25 cm and up to 50 cm in diameter.

We especially notice that the white ceilings are popular. Here you get a sculptural lamp that provides a functional light and at the same time is beautiful to look at. The Italian vintage ceilings have made a name for themselves by being handmade, and so many have swirls in the glass that just make them even more interesting. The rediscovered popularity is probably due to the size, which is easy to mount in the entrance of the house or in the bathroom of the apartment.

How to decorate with ceilings at home

Think about which room you want to hang your ceiling lamp in. Should it provide light for the bathroom? Is it for your entrance? Or do you want to hang it in the nursery?

Decide if you have room for a large ceiling if it is to hang from the ceiling in a small bathroom where there is a sparse ceiling. Maybe the ceiling is too low. Then you probably prefer a small and flat ceiling lamp that can easily provide light to the whole room, as the brightness depends on the bulb you choose. If, on the other hand, it is to be hung in your entrance, where you have high ceilings, you can choose a large ceiling. You can even choose to make a cavalcade of several ceilings in a row one after the other. If you have a children's room, a ceiling can be a decorative lamp on the wall. Let it hang on the wall above the bed, like a bedside lamp and use a low brightness bulb to create a cozy atmosphere.

Although a ceiling is originally intended to hang from the ceiling, it can be easily placed on the wall. It gives a decorative breath to the decor, especially if you choose a ceiling with swirl or a color that differs from the rest of your decor choices. Combine two or more ceilings next to each other in your hallway or on the wall above the sofa back to create an installation. A ceiling on the wall can also be a good alternative to a table lamp if you want to save space at home and at the same time an option for a different wall decoration. It is easy to put a cord with a switch on so that it can be used as a wall lamp.

A mouth-blown wall lamp or glass ceiling lamp is a very special lamp. You will not find two identical, but if you are lucky, you can find some that are similar to each other. There will be deviations in the glass, but that is the charm of mouth-blown lamps. You can see it's handmade. Optionally, use the lamp as an addition to a newly built home, where a mouth-blown Murano lamp can add charm to the newly built style.

1. Disassemble the lamp. You loosen all the screws on the hanger.

Tip: Do not unscrew all the screws completely, but leave them in place. Only unscrew them so far that you can just separate the suspension from the glass. Then it's easier to reassemble.

2. Insert the cord through the hanger and then connect the cord to the socket before mounting the bulb. Tip: Be sure to check the light before reassembling the lamp and hanging it up. Then you save a lot of work so you do not have to go through the process several times.

3. Mount the hanger where you want the lamp to hang, after which you can put the glass on and screw the screws again. Tip: If the ceiling is to be mounted on the wall, you can simply screw in a single screw and hang the ceiling up afterwards. That way you avoid drilling more holes in the wall than necessary.

It's so easy to do, and you can easily do it on your own. You will find all our ceilings here
