Sonya Cooper. Pendant Lights. February 02nd , 2018.
If your lights dont have a lens, you may find that glare is a problem, particularly with mini pendant lights that use higher intensity bulbs. Speaking of bulbs, mini pendants are available with incandescent, halogen and energy saving compact fluorescent lights. Using a dimmer can help you get the most out of whichever bulb you choose. Installing dimmers is easy and you can do it yourself without having to call in an electrician if youre simply replacing an existing light. You want to start by shutting off the power to the room on the circuit box.
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.
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.
No one else other than a qualified person like an electrician should be allowed to deal with the wiring. It is quite OK to get an electrician at a concessional rate as well. In case you still wish to do it yourself the next time pat attention when they are fixing it to note the way they have fixed it up. The pendant fixtures have to be fixed only after the existing ones have been removed and disconnected from the wires. It is quite simple to fix it the existing wire network that can just be fixed to the new ones. You have to take the dimension of the place where the light fixture has to be placed especially in places like corners of the ceiling.
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.
