Bedroom lighting can range from basic to bold, and dimmed to dramatic. No matter what, lighting is a key player in your bedroom design. Whatever your style, these 40 rooms are all the inspiration you need for a uniquely-lit space to read, relax, and, of course, doze.
Over a dining table: Even conventional chandeliers have morphed into tubular modern forms in interesting compositions. And large scale drum shapes add flair. Hang a pair or three to five (odd numbers are pleasing to the eye) along the length of the table. Stagger the heights for interest, say three on one level, two slightly higher. General guidelines are 30 inches above (with an 8-foot ceiling, adding three inches for each additional foot). The outer edge of the lamp should be at least 12 inches from the outer edge of the table (especially with large ones, so your head doesn’t bump into it).
Over a kitchen island: Clear, ribbed or colored glass as well as metals all can make a statement, especially in multiples. Consider the proportions of your island. Like placement over a dining table, the pieces should neither overpower nor underwhelm. A single four-inch pendant would seem too small and not put out enough light. Hanging a pair of pendants with a 4-foot drop might measure around 42 inches from the surface of a 39-inch tall counter that spans around 72 inches.
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.
