Replacing your existing fixtures with standout pendants can provide a lot of bang for your decor bucks, and though they come in all shapes and sizes, we think the bigger the better. 3. If you’re still on the fence about supersizing your lighting, here’s why we’re totally on board with the trend. They work in a variety of rooms. Here, a pair of matching pendants finishes off a dining area, but oversized pendants would also work above a kitchen island (though if you have a smaller island, opt for a single pendant.) They can also find a happy home over a bed, or in a living room with a central floor plan. They’re a high-impact focal point. And they come in a range of styles, so you can add some fresh tension without compromising your aesthetic. 1. Bright idea: Installing a dimmer switch gives large pendants a soft glow and allows you to adjust the lighting depending on the mood or occasion. Just think of it as clicking the refresh button. Every room should make a statement, and what better way to set the tone than with lighting?
