Cable lighting offers a variety of options whether your ceilings are high or low and whether you have a lot of natural light or no light at all. This type of system of meant to be noticed.
- A low-voltage lighting system with power cables that run from wall to wall and attached fixtures that move along the cable is a great alternative to recessed or track lighting. You can attach it to very high ceilings, bring the light down to shine on the walls or artwork and go around corners.
- Some of the lights themselves are like sculptures with bulbs buried in planes, balloons, a sun, etc. There are also simple pendants with glass shades or beaded shades for extra sparkle.
- Installing these systems is a bit more technical than just changing a light fixture. You need to have a transformer that converts the 120 volt to a 12 volt and you need an electrician who has done it before so they know what they're doing.
- Once the system is chosen, think about the bulbs (halogen or incandescent). Halogen is pure white light that simulates sunlight and incandescent is a little bit softer and a little more yellow. Halogen bulbs are best for task lighting, which makes them perfect for the kitchen. Incandescent bulbs cast a beautiful glow on a living space.
