Elena Hendrix. Pendant Lights. February 12th , 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.
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.
It is very decorative and can highlight a special place or furnishing in the area. Pendant glow can be used to liven up the place by using it to illuminate paintings or special flower vases, or particular furniture like a sofa. Although pendant lighting appears classy, chic and expensive, homeowners need not spend too much to decorate and illuminate their residences with these elegant looking pendant lights, since it is relatively easy to make and create. All that is needed are light bulbs (incandescent or fluorescent), electrical sockets, electrical wires, frames, chain or wire or fishing line (to support the electrical wires where the light will be hanging), old lamp shade frame or lamp globes (which will give the pendant light its character and design).
Pendant lights are a hot light fixture these days. It seems like everywhere you look in magazines or on home improvement shows, they are using pendant lights. It is no wonder, really. These are terrific light fixtures. The variety of shapes, styles and prices will suit just about everyone looking for lighting replacements. As with anything that is currently popular, it is easy to overdo, think of the design excesses of the 1970s as an example. With a few simple principles under your belt, you will be able to add pendant lighting to your home like a pro.
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.
