Plus they are often combined with a wall washer so the architecture is fully on display. Uplights can also act as wall washers when installed in the floor especially in contemporary homes. The effect of many wall washers and pot lights can be a bit modernist and even a little cold so use this effect only if you enjoy a minimalist gallery-inspired look. Ultimately when implemented correctly a great lighting scheme won’t necessarily be the first thing you notice.

Notice that this space also includes a pendant sconces and art lamps (more on those later) as well as a full wall of windows.

Keep the overhead light at 150 to 300 watts for optimum illumination. Mix and match your lighting fixtures. They don’t have to be from the same lighting family or design. Notice how in this room the star motif overhead — a look that is trending now — the night table lamps and candle wall sconces mix styles.

Pot lights more technically known as recessed downlights are probably the second-biggest light source people think of when looking to brighten and modernize their home.

Chandeliers also are more likely to have multiple bulbs (which help create more layers) but what is or is not a pendant is still a gray area especially with more modern fixtures like the one here.
