Elena Hendrix. Pendant Lights. February 06th , 2018.
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.
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.
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.
Pendant lights, drops, or suspenders, whatever you call them, the looks and purpose remain unchanged. They all refer to the hanging lights that instantly change the décor of a simple looking place. It is true that they are mainly used for decoration purposes, but a pendant here and a pendant there does make a world of a difference. Pendant lighting involves small individual lights that are spread across a region. When one is switched on, it is not necessary to switch on the others. As against a huge chandelier, this saves energy to a great extent.
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.
