It is a danger with any hanging light, having a human head hit the light. The bathroom is a perfect spot where you need lighting and there are places like over a sink or toilet area, where the fixtures could be hung without fear of anyone hitting them. Dont be afraid to get a little risky with your light fixtures. Now that you know a few simple rules, you can consider installing pendant lights without worrying about making a costly mistake. Pendant lightings are electronic fixtures which are used by todays homes not only to illuminate their residences and other building structures but also for decorative purposes to liven up its interior as well as its exterior parts.
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.
They can also be hung in a group at varying heights to create an artistic lighting look in the corner of a room. Modern pendants are energy saving low voltage models using halogen, LED, or fluorescent bulbs. They come in a huge variety of sizes and vary in materials. They can be metal, cloth, glass, or plastic. Clear glass pendants will naturally diffuse light more effectively in all direction. This makes them perfect for spaces like the kitchen and bathroom. Metals with shiny finishes, such as polished chrome and brushed nickel, can also help reflect light.
Light will either be directed up or down, depending on the shape or type of shade used. Pendants that are inverted will stream light to the ceiling. This provides ambient or mood lighting in a space. Pendants with open bottoms focus light downward, allowing them to be task lighting above a workspace like a kitchen island. LED bulbs are becoming the more popular choice for pendant lighting. They are perfect for task lighting and they are energy efficient, but they can be more expensive than traditional bulbs. However, LED bulbs also last longer than standard bulbs.
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. Glass and metal together can give an antique style to your room. Murano Glass Chandeliers refers to a series of lights of the same type. Their purpose is to provide uniform light throughout the area. The name comes from a group of Murano islands that are interlinked by bridges in the Venetian lagoon.
