Access to more sunlight can have profound effects on the efficiency of your home’s building envelope or skin. It’s always best to assess your house from a whole-building design approach. In new constructions we have the liberty to consider daylighting from the initial design stages. Skylights can be an integrated part of the design of a house allowing the interior to feel as though it’s connected with the exterior. The proportion of glass compared to the rest of the house can be calculated to reach certain energy-efficiency goals.

Notice that this space also includes a pendant sconces and art lamps (more on those later) as well as a full wall of windows. Including at least three layers of light from different categories and in different locations eliminates strong shadows and adds a sense of sparkle that allows all the other furnishings to look their best.

The line between these two can be blurry as a chandelier is essentially just a large (and often more decorative) pendant light.

Although often thought of as primarily an outdoor accoutrement lanterns are useful indoors for adding an extra light to areas such as bathrooms especially when a calming glow is desired for a relaxing mood.

Track lighting got a bit of a bad reputation in the 1990s but when used properly it is still functional and beautiful especially for the kitchen. Pot lights aimed straight down will add general illumination but not necessarily hit the counter. An angled ceiling light on a track can put task lighting exactly where you need it. Undercabinet lighting can also achieve a similar effect. Combining both will make task lighting in the kitchen look effortless.
