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.
Glass pendant light fixtures make a wonderful addition to a current lighting scheme or a great focal point to base a new design on. They are great for use in a small area or in a larger area for use as focused task lighting. One thing is for sure, no matter where you install a glass pendant light, it is sure to become the focal point of the room. When selecting glass pendant light fixtures you can choose from single glass pendants and multiple glass pendant designs. You can find single glass pendants in many different styles from the Tiffany to something more modern.
It is a danger with any hanging light, having a human head hit the light. The bathroom is a perfect spot where you need lighting and there are places like over a sink or toilet area, where the fixtures could be hung without fear of anyone hitting them. Dont be afraid to get a little risky with your light fixtures. Now that you know a few simple rules, you can consider installing pendant lights without worrying about making a costly mistake. Pendant lightings are electronic fixtures which are used by todays homes not only to illuminate their residences and other building structures but also for decorative purposes to liven up its interior as well as its exterior parts.
The lamp globes are what make the character of the pendant glow. It may be made of old lamp shade frames or it may even be a totally new creation of the home owner, or a brand new frame bought from the local light store. Recessed lighting is all very nice in its understated way but the good old pendant light still has a lot going for it. In fact, in some situations, a pendant light really is the only rational choice. Forget glass blown shades filled with dead flies; the modern pendant light bears little relation to those old things, although, of course, if youre after 1950s realism there is no other choice.
Ideally, you want to use a circuit tester to make sure the power is off to the light before touching the wiring. Assuming the power is off, start by removing the old fixture. If youre replacing a ceiling fan with a pendant, remove the blades first. It makes the process much easier. Remove the plastic wire nuts from the wires, disconnect the wires, then remove the mounting bracket. Replace the bracket with the new bracket that came with the light. Once the bracket is installed, its time to connect the wires. Follow the diagram that came with the light.
