Display and Picture Lights

Give your home the look of a chic gallery by installing some picture lights or display lighting. If you've chosen to hang paintings, photos, artwork or another feature on your wall, then chances are you want them to be enjoyed and if they're left in the dark, they won't be. Picture lights sit above pictures and point a light directly down over the picture. The traditional design is to have a horizontal brass picture light suspended by an arm from the wall and hanging over the picture, but there are also more modern designs that will work in contemporary homes. White, black and silver picture lights will work in sleek and modern rooms or also if you want to keep the focus on the picture or art rather than distracting the eye with the light. If you're worried about how to wire up your picture lights into the wall, there are actually battery powered lights that will be much less hassle and fuss, and should be fairly simple to install yourself.

Display lighting can be used to add light and drama to a display cabinet or display shelving. Spotlights, downlights and strip lights are all ways of lighting up your chosen area to show off your trinkets, ornaments, collectibles, books or craftwork. If you just want a few small lights to highlight a couple of objects, then, again, you can find small battery powered lights that are easy to stick to the wall and will be easy to move around if necessary. Otherwise, if you want a more substantial display lighting feature, then it's a good idea to ask an expert to install the lights for you.
