We’ve all been there. You move into a new house or apartment, and everything seems perfect until you realize just how dark certain parts of your home are. Or, you find your dream home, but the 90s light fixtures are begging for an update.
When you’re lighting your home, your options include recessed lighting, chandeliers, and wall sconces. But one of the most popular trends in interior design is calling out for your consideration: pendant lighting. Available in a variety of styles, sizes, and shapes, pendant lighting can be used in just about every room in your home.
Single-light pendants work well in bedrooms and dark corners. Longer 4-bulb options can serve to bring some light to kitchen islands. Round or square multi-bulb pendant lighting options work well as dining room table chandeliers. Check out some of our favorite pendant lighting options to update your home’s decor.
