17 Lights Made From Stuff Around Your House

You can repurpose or upcycle almost anything into a lighting feature.  Popular hipster cafes challenge their creativity and that of others by endlessly searching for household objects to be transformed into a lighting feature.

Entrepreneur and investor Khailee Ng is known for turning waste paper baskets and water pipes into lights.

You can spend a couple of weekends creating any of these lights yourself.  It’s probably not that hard.  However, at some point in time you might need an electrician or handyman to help you out, whether it’s to build or carry out the lighting installation in your home.  Any of the reliable and capable contractors on Kaodim would be happy to help you create these unique lighting features.  Take a photo of what you want to build and put in a request on Kaodim.  I’m sure this project would be alot more interesting than the stuff they usually do.
