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.
To get the lights fixed properly one can go ahead and hire and expert if only there is no paucity of funds. It is essential that there is a compatibility for the pendant light fixtures and the wirings that are present in the house. You will have a lot of trouble fixing the lights yourself when you are not aware of the wires that are passing through. One can save money that needs to be paid to the skilled persons when they have knowledge about pulling up the wires a the correct place.
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.
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.
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.
