Margery Cooke. Pendant Lights. February 03rd , 2018.
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.
A large, single pendant is perfect for an entryway where only one source of lighting is needed. This also makes it an artistic focal point. A big pendant works great above a dining room table for the same reason. Small pendants, like mini globes, are great alternatives to installing track lighting. Their lighting is bright but less intense all around, so it is perfect for task lighting in a kitchen or other work area. Hanging small pendants in multiples allows for sufficient lighting. Make sure to hang them above eye level to prevent glare.
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.
Pendant lights are an excellent way of setting up task lighting. This can be over a kitchen island, study table, bedroom, a corner of the living room, etc. This set up concentrates light only on that portion which is needed for work. When required to light up a huge area and at the same time maintain uniform light throughout, the one system is the best. The best example here can be restaurant lighting. A restaurant is a place where guests are seated on different tables and all tables require uniform lighting. The light should be bright enough to help them enjoy a comfortable meal.
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.
