July 3, 2009, Newsletter Issue #173: Flexible Track Lighting

Tip of the Week

Track lights traditionally are mounted on a metal rail in a straight line. Today, new materials have made it possible to lay track lighting along curving lines -- lines that you choose as you're installing the fixtures.

Flexible track lighting takes the utilitarian track light and turns it into decoration -- or even art. Run track lights in a gentle S curve along a ceiling for a subtle finishing touch on a contemporary room, or lay flex track lighting along a curve in a round or octagonal room.

While monorail track lighting is often too clinical-looking for a home setting, the curving shapes with bendable track lighting can offer exciting decorating choices.
