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.
Of course, there are literally thousands of pendants to choose from on the market, from traditional designs to those that really double as artwork in the home. Glass pendant lights are particularly popular, largely because they offer homeowners a mix of traditional and modern design elements that are both classic and timeless. Depending on their design, glass pendant lights can fit perfectly in a rustic, country inspired home or in a modernist home filled with contemporary furnishings. Thats partly because glass is such an ideal material to make lamps out of as it has an organic, natural quality that can take on chameleonlike qualities.
They can be used as your primary lighting for a room or they can be used as supplemental lighting to create drama, add more light to a specific area, such as a kitchen counter top, or create focal points in the room, such as adding pendants over a buffet in the dining room or over your desk in your home office. If there is a general rule of thumb about what constitutes mini pendant lights, its that they are usually less than 12 in size. Three to four mini pendant lights cast about as much light as two regular pendants that have two bulbs each.
To some extent, modern ones differs from its traditional counterparts in one manner. They are now operated on battery too. One reason for this could be the absence of electric sockets at desired locations. Pendants can vary according to size as well. They can either be long or short, large or small, depending upon the room size and requirement. Pendant lights are a simple yet very effective way of perking up the looks of a simple looking place. At appropriately places, they not only add charm to the place, but also create a comfortable atmosphere.
A pendant light, which is also sometimes referred to as a suspender or drop, is a single light that is hung from the ceiling and suspended by a long electrical cord where electric current is supplied to light up the bulb, which may either be made of fluorescent or incandescent. Although there is a minor disadvantage in using a pendant glow instead of a regular lighting fixture (the illumination that the pendant glow emits is limited), the advantages brought about by its use far outweighs the single nuisance of luminosity limitation.
