Light fixtures make a huge statement in your home, and are obviously important to its function, too! We firmly believe that lighting is an area you should never skimp on in your home, and today we’re sharing some of our favorite fixtures for your living spaces (and ours!) from a few of our past projects.

Dining Room Fixtures

The perfect dining room chandelier or fixture is key to setting the mood of your home, and since the dining table is where your family most likely gathers together for meals, you want it to fit your style just right! Whether you prefer something on-trend, classic or a bit out-of-the-box, we have you covered with some of our favorites.

The Eagan Remodel: The Jayden Globe Chandelier

This globe chandelier makes a statement, and we love how it immediately draws your attention to the large dining room!

Dayton Horse House: The Renaissance Invention 6 Light

We love the modern farmhouse flair of this light with the wooden frame. It ties in the dining table perfectly, without looking too rustic or out of place.

The Lake Loft: Wood Bead Chandelier

For a more casual dining area, like the porch at #thelakeloft, we love a fun, beaded or rattan fixture like this one from Pottery Barn! It brings some great texture and flair to the space.

Living Spaces

For overhead light in your main living spaces, the key is to choose something that adds and enhances the room without taking it over. Bigger rooms can accommodate bigger fixtures, and there’s no shortage of styles to choose from!

The Minnetonka Modern: The Giard Geometric Statement Light

This one is definitely quirky, and works perfectly in the ultra-modern #mtkamodern! We love how it looks like a piece of art as well as a light.

Giard 1 – Light 19.68″ Unique/Statement Geometric LED Flush Mount

The Cali Mod Custom: Sweeney 4 Light

This one is so unique and the geometric, curves details go so well with the accent wall behind it, without being over the top! Semi-flush mount light fixtures like this are a great in-between between flush fixtures and full chandeliers.

The Treehouse Reno: Wagonwheel Chandelier

The lofted ceilings and open space at the #treehousereno called for a bold, striking light fixture. We love the contrast of the matte black finish with the bright, light walls and wood accents.

The Minnetonka Modern: Statement Chandelier

Speaking of big, bold chandeliers, there are two at the #mtkamodern! The brass finish makes the bold lights even more of a statement in this ultra-modern home.

Bailey 6 – Light Unique / Statement Sphere Chandelier

Choosing lights for your living spaces can be challenging, but the perfect lights truly do make such a different in your house. What light fixtures have you chosen for your home? Do you agree with us that splurging on lighting is always worth it? Which of these fixtures is your favorite? We’d love to hear from you in the comments below and over on Instagram @AlmaHomes, too!
