This home has a great sense of flow, as the sitting room opens up into the adjacent dining area. In turn, guests can sip drinks on the sofa and then head over to the table for the main course. Recessed lights and a few edgy fixtures brighten both spaces in the evening.
A vaulted ceiling comprised of smooth wood panels makes an eye-catching addition to this outdoor kitchen. Meanwhile, recessed lighting and industrial pendants keep the space bright from morning to night.
Lighting is an important element of shower design, both for style and safety. Recessed light fixtures provide ample illumination in this accessible, curb-less shower, which also features a fold-down seat and attractive grab bars.
If your budget allows, consider a "scene" integration system that allows you to preset, typically, four different lighting levels. (For example, daytime, food preparation, dinner and evening entertaining.) This 3-D wooden square is a great way to jazz up normal recessed lighting and add accent to the ceiling.
This open-concept kitchen has it all: stainless appliances, a charming range hood, an eat-in island and a custom coffee bar. Recessed lights and gold pendants keep the space bright from morning to night.
Recessed lighting and iron pendant lights come together to create a warm light in this neutral, traditional kitchen. Exposed wooden beams line the ceiling above the large, neutral kitchen island with brown leather barstools for eat-in seating. A neutral subway tile wall adds a glossy texture to the wood details and distressed range hood.
A wall was removed to bring more space and light into newly merged dining room and living space. Antique furnishings and wooden corbels bring both a refined look and a visual tie with the interiors at the B&B next door, as seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.
Modern and traditional tastes blend together in this family-friendly galley kitchen. A custom bar at the opposite end of the room is a showstopping piece. The subtle, muted motifs in the marble tiles and wallpaper create low-volume texture around the kitchen.
A sense of intimacy is captured in this dining room by the addition of a hanging fixture that brings the light low from the high ceiling. The modern lines of the table and chairs are complemented by the more traditional ceiling medallion and fireplace surround. For a touch of fun, the designer added a painted, faux deer mount above the fireplace.
This bright white traditional kitchen has a tray ceiling with recessed lighting, contemporary pendant lights over a marble topped work island, built in shelves, white built in refrigerator, and glass subway tile backsplash.
Your teen will feel like a princess in this feminine but not overly girly bedroom. Touches like the ruffled curtains -- which conjure thoughts of grand ball dresses -- are special and unique. Since the room has small and low windows, recessed lighting brings additional lightness and brightness to the space. The pale yellow walls are at once soothing and reflective of the morning sun.
