Aurelia Mack. Pendant Lights. February 13th , 2018.
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.
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.
In fact, you can get glass pendant lights that are made specifically as works of art bold pieces that add splendor and a cascade of light to a living space. Glass pendants are particularly well suited to a kitchen. Here you can use them over the kitchen island or get mini pendants that are set over the counter tops. These mini pendants work well in a home office too, or over the bed in the master. If you have children, you may want to add pendants over their play area. These will save you a little money on your power bill since your kids can simply turn on the light where they are playing, rather than turning on the main room light, which may use more electricity.
Pendant lights are a hot light fixture these days. It seems like everywhere you look in magazines or on home improvement shows, they are using pendant lights. It is no wonder, really. These are terrific light fixtures. The variety of shapes, styles and prices will suit just about everyone looking for lighting replacements. As with anything that is currently popular, it is easy to overdo, think of the design excesses of the 1970s as an example. With a few simple principles under your belt, you will be able to add pendant lighting to your home like a pro.
The style of the pendant determines the bulb required. Entryways need to have pendant lights seven feet above the floor. A pendant in the dining room needs to be at least 30 inches above the table. Pendants used for a kitchen island need to be 30 to 40 inches above the counter. The height of the tallest person in the home needs to be considered. Make sure all pendants are at least 20 to 25 inches above the top of the tallest persons head. Custom Lighting has a reputation as the designer lighting company of Australia.
