Aurelia Mack. Pendant Lights. February 03rd , 2018.
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.
In most cases, white goes to white, black to black and ground to ground, but every house, especially older ones, can be a bit different. The ground wire connects to the ground screw on the bracket. Before you slide the new mini pendant lights onto the mounting bracket, add new wire caps to the connections. Thats really all there is to it. If you are adding new junction boxes where none existed before and havent done that before, you may want to call in a trusted friend or a professional electrician to help you as youll need to figure out the wiring in your home and how to run the wires to the location of the new fixture.
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.
As such, no two are exactly alike so pairing them adds even more visual interest to the space. In fact, its hard for visitors to your home to not be enraptured by the fixtures, given their slight imperfections and ever changing shapes as they hang above a living space. Pendants, particularly glass pendants, are a great addition to any home. They not only add the perfect amount of light to the space youre trying to light, but they add a touch of elegance and old world charm that few other lights can. They clearly demonstrate that our love of glass is enduring, even in the 21st century.
