Pendant Lights. Friday , February 02nd , 2018 - 15:13:24 PM
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.
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.
If your lights dont have a lens, you may find that glare is a problem, particularly with mini pendant lights that use higher intensity bulbs. Speaking of bulbs, mini pendants are available with incandescent, halogen and energy saving compact fluorescent lights. Using a dimmer can help you get the most out of whichever bulb you choose. Installing dimmers is easy and you can do it yourself without having to call in an electrician if youre simply replacing an existing light. You want to start by shutting off the power to the room on the circuit box.
