Laisne. Pendant Lights. February 04th , 2018.
You can install a multiple pendant over your kitchen or dining room table as a sole source of illumination. This will not only provide ample light, but also a wonderful focal point and conversation piece. Pendants are great in the kitchen because they provide a way to break up the typical horizontal effect of counters, cabinets, and appliances. Deciding to use glass pendant light fixtures in your design is only the first step. The fun part is yet to come when you will start to browse the literally thousands of designs available. There is a style and design for everyone, which is part of the reason why these lights are so popular.
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.
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.
For something rather cosier, a Tiffany style bowl will cast a more subdued and rosy light. These arent the only type of shades available; think of a shape and the chances are somebody has designed a pendant light shade to match. You will find triangles, rectangles, globes, bowls, squares, and probably artful combinations of two or more of them. Then theres frosted glass, painted glass, coloured glass, resin, metal, fabric... The permutations of shape and material are endless and some designers have used them to stunning effect. Pendant lights: beautiful, stylish, effective and, just sometimes, the only sensible choice.
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.
