6 Small Space Lighting Solutions for Every Design Style

Rooms come in all different shapes and sizes. Fortunately, so do lighting options. Whether you’re hoping to brighten up a cramped corner of your living room or score some accent lighting in a tiny bedroom, we rounded up a handful of savvy lighting solutions to help. From glam gold-finished bedside sconces to simple industrial-style plug-in pendants, here are six small space-friendly light fixtures for every aesthetic.

For the Earthy Minimalist

1. Plug-In Solo Sconce (in Black):

A good wall sconce goes a long way in a small room. Free up some much-needed storage space by installing the sleek but subdued Plug-In Solo Sconce by Color Cord Company above your nightstand or end table in place of a bulky table lamp.

2. Slouch Plug-In Pendant:

Nothing brightens up a dim, cramped corner faster than a stylish pendant light. The Slouch Plug-In Pendant by Color Cord Company boasts a collapsible, loose weave natural cotton drum shade that’s chic, laidback, and small space-friendly at the same time.

For Fans Of Modern Glam

3. Plug-In Solo Sconce (in Gold):

You can always count on a little gold to make a big statement in a small room. Employ a pair of gold-finished Plug-In Solo Sconces on either side of your bed or sofa to create a space-savvy ambient lighting scheme.

4. Widget Trio Pendant:

 If you thought there was no such thing as a small space-friendly chandelier then it’s time to reconsider. The Widget Trio Pendant by Color Cord Company is slim enough to suspend above a tiny kitchen island or dining table while supplying plenty of graphic charm.

For Relaxed, Industrial Design Lovers
