Here the lighting has a specific function. Large marble wall paneling is illuminated in the living room, spots over the kitchen island, hidden lighting and lamps hanging over the table. Multimedia is active and the speakers play classical music. Suitable for both expressive cooking and the family gathering around the table.
These fixtures are subtle and can be directional, and can be connected to dimmer switches to give a range of light from subtly dim to full brightness to illuminate an entire room.
Measure the extension line of the distance from your ceiling down into the space you’d like to light. Take these measurements into consideration when ordering online or in lighting catalogs. Pendant lights are an affordable way to transform your space and beautifully light your home.
Lighting that looks like a flower, or is made from seagrass and beautifully handcrafted has turned pendant lights into sculptural artisan finds that we love. Try looking in your favorite trendy home décor magazine, pendant lights are now more for show than only producing light.
For high ceilings and modern décor use recessed lighting: “Can” light fixtures, so called because of the metal recessed “can” that is inserted into the ceiling and the light fixture fits inside.
For nurseries consider a dim wall sconce, or table lamp that can be used for changing diapers, or rocking infants to sleep.
In nurseries and kid’s rooms, remember night lighting: Think about the lighting for when children sleep when planning lighting requirements. Night lights can help small children from being scared, but can also help parents navigate through dark rooms.
Blown glass, fabric, and colorful stained-glass effects make pendant lights unique and attractive. In your home, use pendant lights as sculptural artwork and effective ambient lighting, all-in-one.
