There are so many amazing pendant lights on the market that the days of only having downlights should be long gone!
I sat down with Jen Bishop from Interiors Addict to talk about what spaces you can hang pendant lights in to create interest and mood lighting in your home.
Here’s 5 spaces we came up with that you might not have thought of:
1. The Bathroom
Adding pendant lights over the bathroom vanity can create a gorgeous softness to the bathroom.
Opt for low voltage options and your bathroom will feel more like a retreat than a cold, sterile space.
2. The Living Room
Our living room is the place we wind down to watch TV with the family. For this reason, I would recommend adding a pendant light to the back corner of the room at about chest height.
It’s the perfect way to create mood lighting and add interest behind the couch without it being in the way of the TV!
3. The Dining Room
I love the look of a pendant light hanging over the dining table – it just feel so complete.
Just be certain that your dining table is going to stay in that position for a few years to come because it’s not easy to move the lighting around.
4. The Bedroom
Free up some space on your bedside tables and hang pendant lights above your bed instead of using lamps.
You could have two either side or hang one over the bedhead in the middle – it will look divine and save you so much space.
5. Outdoor Area
And one of our most forgotten spaces is the outdoors! Pendant lights can really bring this space together and give it the final touch so it feels like an additional living/dining space.
There’s even pendant options that have a fixed rod instead of a chain so you don’t need to worry about swinging!
Try hanging a pendant light in one of these spaces and see the instant transformation for yourself!
