Elena Hendrix. Pendant Lights. February 15th , 2018.
Pendant lighting is perfect when homes are being renovated or built. Even whenever the look needs to be updated, pendant lighting is the place to start. Pendants can be modern or traditional and used in any room, from the kitchen to the bedroom. There are many different kinds of pendant lights to choose from, and all say something different about the homes style. Pendant lighting is a popular choice because it is inexpensive and less bulky compared to chandeliers. It also makes for great task lighting in workspaces, such as the kitchen.
Depending on the size of the kitchen, a row of two or three pendant lights will look perfect. With the wonderful variety of colors, shapes and lamp shades to choose from, you can find a set of pendants that will compliment your kitchen decor. They are particularly apt in kitchens with an island work space. The pendants drop over the island and it just pulls the room together. If you have a high ceiling, pendants can be a welcome design element in the dining room. I recently saw the coolest light fixture it was a row of three colored bottles.
So, youre redesigning your interior spaces and the subject of lighting comes up. You want to go with a more contemporary look, and are intrigued by the idea of pendant lighting. But which lighting solution is best for you pendants or mini pendants? Thats a good question, and one with no simple answer. Thats because theres no real standards regarding what is and what isnt a mini pendant. All pendant lights are designed to shine light on a specific area. Think of them as spotlights in a theater.
They looked like beautiful wine bottles and it made the dining room a fun and funky place to be. The ceiling in that house was tall enough to accommodate the long strand combined with the long shades of the wine bottle design. Not every house can handle that sort of fixture, so you have to balance your personal delight at a design with the practicality of how it will look when it is installed. The same premise goes for using pendant lights in the bathroom. A way to get around the high ceiling issue is to hang the lights in a place where no ones head will be.
Glass pendant lights cast off more light than a fabric shaded counterpart. The light can be further altered by the color of the glass used in the fixture. Some glass lights come with opaque or transparent shades that will control the direction of the light. But others are clear, allowing the light to shine through, increasing the beauty and effectiveness of the lights. One of the best things about glass pendants is that they can be artistic as well as functional. If youre a fan of Dale Chihuly, you can get fiery colored lamps or lamps that look like flowers or other sculptural shapes that will work wonderfully in an entryway or in a stairwell.
