Suspended Wire Pendant Lighting

From glamorously graceful to funky and fun, suspended wire pendant lighting can make a delightfully desirable impact on almost any home decor scheme. Hung from the ceiling by chains or rods, this type of lighting works well in nearly any room of the home where one can be attached with enough headroom to prevent bumping into it.

Go-Anywhere Lighting

Used as task lighting in the kitchen, for example, suspended pendant lighting does its job beautifully over countertops, sinks, and cooking areas. Hung staggered over an area in a row of three or more (always use odd-numbered groupings for visual aesthetics) gives you a choice of lighting power over an area while attaching them all in an evenly hung row makes for a dramatic style effect.

Using Low Voltage Landscape Lighting

How to Install Cove Lighting

Cove lighting is a form of indirect lighting that emanates from ledges, valances, or horizontal recesses on the upper wall or in the ceiling of a room. Installing cove lighting is relatively easy compared to other forms of lighting because it requires no special tools or hardware and many manufacturers design their lighting so it can be either hard wired into your electrical system, or soft wired (via a plug) into an available outlet.

Lighting from cove lighting is designed to be directed upwards and distributed over the ceiling or cabinet space to produce a warm, soft glow without any harsh direct lighting effects.
