Pendant Lighting

Pendant lighting is a great alternative to chandelier lighting. You can typically choose from smaller, less invasive styles but can still add the perfect amount of light to any room without it becoming overwhelming.

Not only are pendant lights useful for lighting, they are available in many attractive styles and can really pull a room together based on the style and color that you choose.

These are just a few examples of pendant lights:

Recessed Lighting - Things to Consider

Recessed lighting can add appeal to any room. Here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing you recessed lighting setup!

  • Be careful about relying on recessed lighting alone. With no other form of lighting in a room, recessed lighting can make the room appear bland. 
  • If you're planning to use recessed downlights in the bathroom, try adding light facing in from the sides of the mirror. This can help to avoid dramatic and unflattering light while you're in the bathroom. 
  • Be careful not to place the lights too far from the walls. Doing so doesn't allow the beam of light to hit the wall and can create a cave-like, dark feeling.
  • Mark the lighting fixtures on your ceiling before making and cuts or installations. This can give you a better idea of what to expect when the lights are installed.
  • Lamps are important too. Although recessed lighting is desirable and elegant, you should still employ the use of a regular lamp for activities such as reading.
  • Do not place your lights just above the blades of a fan. When the fan is turned on, this can cause a strobe effect.

Client Testimonials

"In May of 2008 our sales force began recommending Jonathan for most of our customer installation needs. Avenues Lighting has been elated with the extreme professionalism of Jonathan. In our experience with other electrical contractors we have recommended in the past, we have had a lot of disappointment with their general business practices which does reflect on our business.

Jonathan is timely, does terrific work, is fair in pricing and most importantly leaves the job as he found it, making sure to clean up. We have on numerous occasions received calls and letters back from customers thanking us for recommending Jonathan. We at Avenues Lighting have been extremely fortunate to have found a true ally in customer service in Jonathan. I cannot find words large enough to describe my recommendation of Jonathan for all electrical needs.

-Mark Blanchard, Avenues Lighting - Jacksonville, FL

"Thank you so much for the fine work you did at our new home. Your knowledge and skill surely saved me a ton of headaches and cash. You will be our first call next time we find ourselves in need of a great electrician and I would definitely recommend you to anyone seeking the same."
-Nick A E - Jacksonville, FL
All of us at BSD Electric love and appreciate your testimonials!
