Its common sense, after all, that if youre lighting, say, a narrow hallway, youll need a smaller fitting than if you were lighting a large lounge or dining room. In fact, in the larger space you will need more than one pendant to prevent casting ugly shadows. You will, of course, choose your new light to match your existing dcor and, whether that is traditional or funky, you will find something to suit. We know nowadays, of course, that lighting is all about effect. Narrow, cylindrical shades can provide some wonderfully graphic effects, with slim columns of light directed straight down.
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.
If you are putting them in the play area, you may want to go with acrylic lights instead of glass pendant lights. As any parent knows, children can be pretty rambunctious and lights inevitably end up getting in the way of an errant football or flying Barbie. Better to play it safe and get an unbreakable light. Blown glass pendants are more popular than ever these days. Looking as if an artisan made them, they have small imperfections such as bubbles in the surface, giving them a handmade look. Others have been blown to have a stainedlass effect, being a mix of several different colors or hues of the same color.
Drum shaped pendant lights made of cloth should be put in the living room. This is because the cloth material collects dust easily. Putting them in a living room or common area makes cleaning easy with a quick dusting. Plastic is the most cost effective, but they are prone to discolouration over time. Use plastic in corners and nooks that are not highly trafficked in order to make them last longer. This material makes them perfect for a pendant grouping that serves as an aesthetic home feature.
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.
