If your lights dont have a lens, you may find that glare is a problem, particularly with mini pendant lights that use higher intensity bulbs. Speaking of bulbs, mini pendants are available with incandescent, halogen and energy saving compact fluorescent lights. Using a dimmer can help you get the most out of whichever bulb you choose. Installing dimmers is easy and you can do it yourself without having to call in an electrician if youre simply replacing an existing light. You want to start by shutting off the power to the room on the circuit box.
The type of bulb to be used would really depend on the taste of the homeowner. If he or she wants a warm illumination or glow, then the incandescent bulb is the way to go. If this type of bulb is used, a light dimmer may be used to control the dimness or brightness of the light. Fluorescent bulbs are not susceptible to this kind of effect. The length of the light bulb from the ceiling is another consideration which is left to the discretion of the home owner. If, however, the pendant glow is to be used for the illumination of a table, the suggested distance between the table and the lamp is usually 48 inches or two feet.
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.
A pendant hung just over every table will serve the purpose effectively. Pendants are optimally used in places that cannot accommodate a table lamp. For example, a corner of a living room might not have enough space to fit in a lamp shade. In such cases, suspending the light brightens up the place and, at the same time, saves on space. The use of modern pendant lighting is increasingly done for aesthetic reasons as well. They can be used in offcenter positions to highlight a particular part or aspect of designing. They can also be used to deflect attention from one part of the room to another.
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.
