There is no exact and universal rule when it comes to spacing recessed lights. Yet a simple way forward is to put 5-inch lights approximately 5 feet apart or 3-inch lights around 3 feet away from one another.
Lighting is often the best when it is least noticed. Unless you are adding an extravagant floor lamp or a dazzling chandelier to the interiors lighting is all about shining the spotlight on something else.
The two best ways to go is choosing a large pendant lamp or a cluster/row of smaller ones. They can be hung really low such as to become part of your dining table layout. The dining table lamp just has to be installed in such a way that one cannot bump their head into it – and it doesn’t blind people with glare. Let us see some beautiful choices.
The arched design of the Arco allows it to multi-task with ease and reach effortlessly places where other floor lamps can simply not dream of going. This unobtrusive nature of Arco combined with its modern appeal is what made the lamp so popular and sought-after.
If you would rather go with subtle consider these cute pendant lamps designed by Diego Rossi and Raffaele Tedesco for Luceplan. They work very well over the dining table hung in clusters at different heights over a round table or disposed in a row over the breakfast bar.
Many of us might also want to create a simple and smart guest room or additional bedroom without all the frills of an elaborate side table and a pair of exquisite table lamps. This is where the sconces and pendant lights swing in as a glittering hope to those looking for equally stylish alternatives.
