Pendant Lights. Friday , February 09th , 2018 - 12:27:14 PM
For something rather cosier, a Tiffany style bowl will cast a more subdued and rosy light. These arent the only type of shades available; think of a shape and the chances are somebody has designed a pendant light shade to match. You will find triangles, rectangles, globes, bowls, squares, and probably artful combinations of two or more of them. Then theres frosted glass, painted glass, coloured glass, resin, metal, fabric... The permutations of shape and material are endless and some designers have used them to stunning effect. Pendant lights: beautiful, stylish, effective and, just sometimes, the only sensible choice.
Most of us, though, would rather have one of the contemporary light fittings that fall in the pendant category the whimsical, the elegant or the just plain funky. In the kitchen, pendants are ideal for hanging over island units and countertops, where they not only look good but provide a neat combination of both task and ambient light. Whatever type of light fitting youre thinking of purchasing, you should take time to think about the effect youre hoping to achieve, and this means taking into account the size of the space you are planning to illuminate as well as the rest of the dcor.
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.
