From residential to commercial and hospitality spaces, the right mood and feel is always what’s most important. Did you know that the standard drop height of suspending lighting can drastically change the functionality of a space? The lower the lighting, the more intimate the space will feel. Installing a fixture at a higher distance will promote more functionality.
Install Lighting Over a Table
It is ideal to hang your suspended lighting 28-32 inches above a tabletop. This includes dining tables and surfaces in intimate settings. Bedroom side-tables can be even closer to your lighting, about 12-20 inches below a light source. With Juniper’s THIN Suspension, THIN Multiples, THIN Primaries, or the THIN Chandelier, clients can install lighting even lower due to their ultra-low profile. Dimmable LED segments found in all of these products are fully dimmable. Customize the light color temperature for more intimate spaces. Add a frosted bulb lense for a softer spray of light.
Install Lighting Over a Countertop
For countertops and functional spaces, hang suspended lighting 30-36 inches above your surface. This allows for extra room to work underneath without becoming intrusive. Junipers high-output LED lighting solutions allow you to turn up the lumens and get some work done, without skyrocketing your electric bill. Illuminating an office and need something with a serious kick? Try installing the Metropolis, an LED lighting system that can independently dim its top and bottom hemispheres, for controlled direct and indirect light. What about installing your lighting directly into your workspace? The THIN Shared Task Lamp provides a perfectly illuminated workspace and follows your desk whenever you decide to rearrange your furniture.
Install Lighting Over a Coffee Table
For a cozy living room or lounge setting, we recommend lighting hang 5-7 feet from the floor, depending on the fixture itself. Our Love Me Not pendant light would be perfect for a soft and delicate touch of weightless warmth. Fully dimmable and hand-formed, each one is completely unique and creates a tranquil atmosphere.
