Krista Kinney. Pendant Lights. February 03rd , 2018.
They can be used as your primary lighting for a room or they can be used as supplemental lighting to create drama, add more light to a specific area, such as a kitchen counter top, or create focal points in the room, such as adding pendants over a buffet in the dining room or over your desk in your home office. If there is a general rule of thumb about what constitutes mini pendant lights, its that they are usually less than 12 in size. Three to four mini pendant lights cast about as much light as two regular pendants that have two bulbs each.
If you are putting them in the play area, you may want to go with acrylic lights instead of glass pendant lights. As any parent knows, children can be pretty rambunctious and lights inevitably end up getting in the way of an errant football or flying Barbie. Better to play it safe and get an unbreakable light. Blown glass pendants are more popular than ever these days. Looking as if an artisan made them, they have small imperfections such as bubbles in the surface, giving them a handmade look. Others have been blown to have a stainedlass effect, being a mix of several different colors or hues of the same color.
The lamp globes are what make the character of the pendant glow. It may be made of old lamp shade frames or it may even be a totally new creation of the home owner, or a brand new frame bought from the local light store. Recessed lighting is all very nice in its understated way but the good old pendant light still has a lot going for it. In fact, in some situations, a pendant light really is the only rational choice. Forget glass blown shades filled with dead flies; the modern pendant light bears little relation to those old things, although, of course, if youre after 1950s realism there is no other choice.
Drum shaped pendant lights made of cloth should be put in the living room. This is because the cloth material collects dust easily. Putting them in a living room or common area makes cleaning easy with a quick dusting. Plastic is the most cost effective, but they are prone to discolouration over time. Use plastic in corners and nooks that are not highly trafficked in order to make them last longer. This material makes them perfect for a pendant grouping that serves as an aesthetic home feature.
It is very decorative and can highlight a special place or furnishing in the area. Pendant glow can be used to liven up the place by using it to illuminate paintings or special flower vases, or particular furniture like a sofa. Although pendant lighting appears classy, chic and expensive, homeowners need not spend too much to decorate and illuminate their residences with these elegant looking pendant lights, since it is relatively easy to make and create. All that is needed are light bulbs (incandescent or fluorescent), electrical sockets, electrical wires, frames, chain or wire or fishing line (to support the electrical wires where the light will be hanging), old lamp shade frame or lamp globes (which will give the pendant light its character and design).
