When it comes to overhead (ambient) lighting, it’s always a great idea to use two different kinds. In this elegant living room by Su Hodges Interiors, pot lights provide the majority of light (which is spread across the ceiling), while a transitional hanging fixture emphasizes the seating area in the center of the room.
A mix of different types of lighting, placed at different points in the room, is essential for creating a proper living room lighting scheme. While the first thing you tend to see in this room in London’s Cheyenne Terrace is the central statement fixture, there are also three table lamps, one-floor lamp, five pot lights, and an accent light in the ceiling on the window side of the room. They all combine to create a layered and robust lighting scheme, free of shadows.
Kitchen Ceiling Lighting: The Foundation of Kitchen Lighting. A basic ceiling light must not be missing in any kitchen. Always a good choice are kitchen lights that are easy to clean. Experts recommend 300 lumens per square meter for central ceiling lighting. Out tip for basic lighting are spots that can be rotated in different directions.
Incorporate nature into your lighting scheme by securing a dead tree in a concrete mold and draping your pendant lamp from the tree branch. This version would work best in an area where a lower light source is needed—around a low-to-the-ground dining table or in a living room arrangement. Despite its humble origins in plumbing projects, copper piping is a visually striking material and relatively inexpensive. Build a grid out of the piping, drape simple pendant lights over it, and voilà! You’ve built a modern industrial chandelier with little more than a day’s work.
