Shawn Berger. Pendant Lights. February 20th , 2018.
Pendant lights is simply a fancy way of saying hanging lights. But they do differ from swags or chandeliers significantly. A pendant is going to hang down at least two feet from the ceiling. It will be singular meaning, one strand, one shade, one bulb. When should you use this style of light fixture? First, my favorite place to install pendant lighting is the kitchen. There they are useful as well as beautiful. What you get with pendant is focused lighting. That is perfect for kitchen work, where you are preparing food and reading recipes.
As such, no two are exactly alike so pairing them adds even more visual interest to the space. In fact, its hard for visitors to your home to not be enraptured by the fixtures, given their slight imperfections and ever changing shapes as they hang above a living space. Pendants, particularly glass pendants, are a great addition to any home. They not only add the perfect amount of light to the space youre trying to light, but they add a touch of elegance and old world charm that few other lights can. They clearly demonstrate that our love of glass is enduring, even in the 21st century.
Hospitality lighting techniques also make creative use of pendants in hotels and restaurants. Types of Pendants, Modern ones can classified on the basis of the material used in them. The shades could be glass, combination of glass and metal, or fabric. While fabric gives a warm feeling, glass can give more clarity in vision.

The name comes from a group of Murano islands that are interlinked by bridges in the Venetian lagoon.
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.
In most cases, white goes to white, black to black and ground to ground, but every house, especially older ones, can be a bit different. The ground wire connects to the ground screw on the bracket. Before you slide the new mini pendant lights onto the mounting bracket, add new wire caps to the connections. Thats really all there is to it. If you are adding new junction boxes where none existed before and havent done that before, you may want to call in a trusted friend or a professional electrician to help you as youll need to figure out the wiring in your home and how to run the wires to the location of the new fixture.
