One easy way to instantly update your space is to add pendant lighting.

As seen here in our showroom at Brillo, pendant lights are an eye catching and fun way to add a design element that can set your room apart from others. Given the different sizes and styles they come in, you will be sure to find a style you love.

Commonly used in kitchens, pendant lighting can help achieve a certain design aesthetic you’re aiming for. Whether you’re going for a trendy modern look, a touch of art deco, or want  an industrial farmhouse style as Kelly Nutt Design did here, pendant lighting helps to tie the space together.

Sometimes when you have pieces in your room that are the standout features like in this beautiful kitchen designed by Philippe Cote Design, pendant lighting can balance a space giving your eye a chance to rest. This simple lighting choice still achieves an updated design, but allows for other aspects of the kitchen to be center stage.

Or you can make the pendant lights your focal point like the below design by Veneer Designs. Set against a clean backdrop, these lights are clearly going to be noticed. Plus with the variety of different pendant lights to choose from, if this is the design choice you’re after there will be plenty of options!

Bathrooms are a great space in your home to experiment with pendant lighting. Whether you’re using one single light, two like Simply Grove, or more, pendants are a fun way to add a pop of interest. Often we see bathrooms in neutral color palettes, and their use of a simple shape in a cool gold hue adds instant style.

Whether you are working with a large or small scale room, pendant lighting works! Isn’t the lighting Eric Olsen Design used interesting? This small nook could potentially have felt overcrowded by pairing a large sink with two larger pendant lights, but keeping the color palette simple and neutral, it instead creates a space full of character with a cozy vintage look.

If you’re looking at doing a remodel of your home, want an easy way to refresh, or are selling your home in the near future, consider adding pendant lights. There are options that will suit any design style you love. This is a great feature to update your home and bring some added stylishness to your space!
