Create a brighter room with plug in pendant lighting. I had a friend over for some coffee the other day and she told me that my living room could use a little more light. The room was rather dim, even with a couple of lamps in place. She suggested that I get some plug in pendant lighting. I thought this meant that I would be calling an electrician to run some wires inside my ceiling for the new lights to work.
My friend explained that these lights hang on the ceiling, but plug into the regular wall outlets, eliminating the need for wires to run through the ceiling. It’s a cheaper solution to wiring a socket, yet it’s just as functional, and in a way better, because it can be moved around without much effort. I browsed around for some lights that would be stylish enough to fit with the decor of my living room.
I found two matching lights with white shades over them. I attached some metal clips to the ceiling to hold the light and the power cord in place, and ran each cord to the corners of the wall. The lights cover more area than my old lamps did because of their position in the middle of the living room. You’d be surprised at how much additional lighting is created with these types of lights.
