Lately I've been thinking about new pendant lighting ideas -- undoubtedly you've seen pendant lighting popping up in kitchens, dining rooms and living rooms, but what about other rooms in the house? Hallways, stairways, bathrooms and bedrooms all need love too! Here are some pendant lighting ideas for inspiration: 1. Foyers and Hallways: Pendant lighting is no stranger to foyers and hallways, but how about groups of pendants ? It’s a fresh take on the typical chandelier. 2. Stairways: Much like hallways, pendants are a staple lighting technique in stairways. Pendants hanging at different heights along the path of stairways really engage you on the climb up or down. 3. Bedrooms: You can use pendant lighting in place of bedside table lamps in the bedroom. This is an especially great move for small bedrooms where space is at a premium or you have bedside tables that are on the small side. I love the idea of grouping pendants alongside the bed. 4. Bathrooms: Why stick to using the traditional bath bar or sconces to light your vanity when you can use pendants? One of my pet peeves is a recessed light mounted directly over the sink (it casts harsh shadows on your face) – using a pair of pendants on either side of a vanity mirror shines light on you from the sides, which is eminently more flattering.
