Georgina Hobbs. Pendant Lights. February 12th , 2018.
Pendant lights are an excellent way of setting up task lighting. This can be over a kitchen island, study table, bedroom, a corner of the living room, etc. This set up concentrates light only on that portion which is needed for work. When required to light up a huge area and at the same time maintain uniform light throughout, the one system is the best. The best example here can be restaurant lighting. A restaurant is a place where guests are seated on different tables and all tables require uniform lighting. The light should be bright enough to help them enjoy a comfortable meal.
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.
A pendant light, which is also sometimes referred to as a suspender or drop, is a single light that is hung from the ceiling and suspended by a long electrical cord where electric current is supplied to light up the bulb, which may either be made of fluorescent or incandescent. Although there is a minor disadvantage in using a pendant glow instead of a regular lighting fixture (the illumination that the pendant glow emits is limited), the advantages brought about by its use far outweighs the single nuisance of luminosity limitation.
A multiple pendant is going to have a central globe design with multiple additional lights hanging from it. The number of additional lights can range from 3 to 25. Singles are great for focused task lighting, while multipendants can provide sufficient illumination for a larger space. Pendant lights are great for use in kitchens, especially over kitchen islands where they will be out of the way of traffic and provide focused lighting on the island workstation. Many people like to install them in dark corners as well.
Pendant lights is simply a fancy way of saying hanging lights. But they do differ from swags or chandeliers significantly. A pendant is going to hang down at least two feet from the ceiling. It will be singular meaning, one strand, one shade, one bulb. When should you use this style of light fixture? First, my favorite place to install pendant lighting is the kitchen. There they are useful as well as beautiful. What you get with pendant is focused lighting. That is perfect for kitchen work, where you are preparing food and reading recipes.
