Bette Carrillo. Pendant Lights. February 11th , 2018.
They are attractive focal points while still being a functional lighting source. They save space over a floor or table lamp and provide more ambient lighting over greater surface areas. A pendant light is also known as a drop or suspender. It is a lone light fixture that hangs from the ceiling, suspended by a cord, chain, or metal rod. Used by themselves, pendant lights present a striking feature to a room. More often they are hung in multiples in a straight line over countertops, dining tables, or bathrooms.
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.
The beauty of minis, however, is that you can use more of them over a greater area, creating innovative lighting solutions for a room that really make it stand out. If you want to conserve energy, there is a wide selection of low voltage mini pendant lights to choose from. When shopping for and selecting mini pendant lights, you want to consider a couple things. First, you want to consider how the light is cast downward as well as in other directions. In some cases, you may need to have additional lighting in the room, such as recessed cans or a central chandelier.
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.
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.
