Fellow lighting aficionados, Pinterest lovers with an eye for design, and immaculate designers that leave everyone thinking “…How on earth do they do it?” We have a new design trend that will take any room in your house to the next level. What is it? Picture lights, of course.

I know, this is a strong claim to make. Even I, at first, was a little weary. But being the Pinterest freak that I am, I started to look around. And it’s true, picture lights are the up and coming new trend in design. They are sleek, classy, and extremely versatile. While they may be called “Picture” lights, the possibilities truly are endless. Just to give you some inspiration, here are six beautiful ways we can use Picture Lights:

  1. Bookshelves

Picture lights are the perfect accent to a bookshelf. Whether your room is surrounded by bookshelves or you have only one strategically placed, a picture light will define your bookshelf and make your books a decoration as well as a centerpiece of knowledge. They also serve in a functional way in this scenario by allowing you to browse through your titles with visual ease.

2. Vanities

Placing a picture light above a vanity or in a bathroom is absolutely beautiful. And, much like the bookcase, it is so functional. Every girl understands the struggle with horrible bathroom lighting. I experience it all the time with my bathroom. I put on my makeup thinking it looks perfect, then I walk outside to find out I’m actually looking a little clownish. Then I have to rush to fix it in the car before I go to work. By mounting a picture light you are using a light that is meant to illuminate art, therefore you are utilizing what is meant to be natural lighting. With Conoco lights, you receive an LED fixed light, which is energy efficient and provides the natural lighting every woman is looking for in their bathroom.

3. Kitchen Table

Picture lights can set just the right mood lighting to your table while adding the perfect accent to the art on your wall. They provide a more concentrated light than a normal ceiling light, which further pulls the attention to your loved ones, but they are high enough on the wall to ensure your conversation is the center of attention.

4. Wardrobes

Picture lights also add the perfect accent to your wardrobe. If you need some extra light to shine on your shoe rack or your shirts, picture lights do it with style. They provide a natural, concentrated light for your clothes that a normal light cannot provide in a walk in closet. Beyond this, they have a unique, smart look that shines beautifully above your wardrobe.

5. Reading Light

Installing a picture light next to or above your bed provides an excellent and permanent fixture for reading at night while taking the look of your bedroom to the next level of design. It is an upgrade from the bedside lamp because it opens up space on your bedside table while creating a new, chic ambiance in your room.

6. And, of course, the classic use of a Picture Light.

While the picture light is very versatile, the classic use of an art light is still, of course, very stylish and will work with any taste in design.

There you have it, six beautiful and innovative ways to use a picture light. If you didn’t believe in the versatility of a picture light before, I’m sure you do now. Picture Lights are also not restricted to simply brass or streamline, they come in all different shapes, sizes, and materials. Check out our online store for more details.
