In a large room, a single overhead fixture may not be enough. In most cases, pot lights are a good solution, but if recessed lighting isn’t for you there is another possibility. Consider hanging multiple fixtures throughout the room, like designer Kari Wilbanks did here. They key to making this look work is to stick with fairly simple fixtures that have clean silhouettes, and to hang them on a grid rather than in random spots throughout the ceiling.
Anyone who does not have wall cabinets in the kitchen will be rewarded with a generous amount of space - and therefore more room for lighting. The workspace can be wonderfully and precisely illuminated with pendant lighting such as the classic Toldbod 120 by Louis Poulsen or the Unfold pendant lamp by Muuto.
Living rooms require three types of lighting: ambient, task, and accent. Ambient light provides a room with overall illumination, task lighting directs light to certain work zones, and accent lights highlight specific objects. Within those basic requirements are a world of options. Whether you want something fun like this room from Jonathan Adler, or something more subdued, there’s a virtually endless supply of living room lighting ideas for every taste and setting.
Basic brightness is provided by spotlights, ceiling lights and pendant lighting. Spotlights and flat ceiling lights can be placed in the middle of the room or all over the ceiling. Pendant lighting has its place above the coffee table: this way they are presented best and the table prevents you or your guests from bumping your / their head against the light. When you’re using spotlights you should always use a dimmer. Only then the light can be adjusted accordingly to your your mood.
