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.
Adding lights as decorative elements helps set a mood in a space. Provided that general lighting is already installed using lights instead of wall art can be a decorative way to provide ambient lighting.
Don’t think that adding lights to your toe-kicks is a frivolous aesthetics-only decision. Strip lighting at the underside of base cabinets is a great way to create a night light that looks fabulous.
