Cove light: Such light is mounted at the perimeter of the living space, such as where the ceiling and walls meet. A large crown molding may be used to hide the actual light. Light fixtures are typically placed about 4 inches from the wall in order to minimize any scalloping effects. It is also recommended that the ceiling height above the light fixture be no more than twice the distance of the fixture to the wall (e.g., a bulb placed 3 inches away from the wall should be no more than 6 inches away from the ceiling).
Recent developments have also paved the way for fairy lights to have a more controlled temperature. This makes it possible to install these lights as part of the décor. You can wrap it in wreaths, put it around twigs or even use them in garlands without the risk of overheating. As LED fairy lights have smaller sizes, they can be fitted to any decoration as an added light reflection or an afterglow.
When we are considering the decoration of our homes, it can be easy to get inspiration for colour schemes, furniture and the layout of the room. There are many places to see aspirational rooms in interior design magazines, on home improvement television programmes and by visiting showrooms in a variety of stores. Whilst these may give us an idea for a lamp or lightshade, it can be more difficult to recreate the effect of carefully positioned light sources in our own homes.
