If you are adding new pendant lighting but don’t want to deal with the expense or hassle of changing your home’s electrical setup cord swags can be a stylish solution. Swag them loosely over a bar or a hook as seen in this kitchen or secure the cord tight to the ceiling for an industrial look.

Decorative lighting. This adds visual sparkle. Whitehead advises using a single pendant in a square-shaped bathroom for just the right touch.
