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.
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.
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.
So, youre redesigning your interior spaces and the subject of lighting comes up. You want to go with a more contemporary look, and are intrigued by the idea of pendant lighting. But which lighting solution is best for you pendants or mini pendants? Thats a good question, and one with no simple answer. Thats because theres no real standards regarding what is and what isnt a mini pendant. All pendant lights are designed to shine light on a specific area. Think of them as spotlights in a theater.
Most of us, though, would rather have one of the contemporary light fittings that fall in the pendant category the whimsical, the elegant or the just plain funky. In the kitchen, pendants are ideal for hanging over island units and countertops, where they not only look good but provide a neat combination of both task and ambient light. Whatever type of light fitting youre thinking of purchasing, you should take time to think about the effect youre hoping to achieve, and this means taking into account the size of the space you are planning to illuminate as well as the rest of the dcor.
