Pendant lights drops or suspenders whatever you call them the looks and purpose remain unchanged. They all refer to the hanging lights that instantly change the décor of a simple looking place. It is true that they are mainly used for decoration purposes but a pendant here and a pendant there does make a world of a difference.
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.
Entryways need to have pendant lights seven feet above the floor. A pendant in the dining room needs to be at least 30 inches above the table. Pendants used for a kitchen island need to be 30 to 40 inches above the counter. The height of the tallest person in the home needs to be considered. Make sure all pendants are at least 20 to 25 inches above the top of the tallest person`s head.
If you have children you may want to add pendants over their play area. These will save you a little money on your power bill since your kids can simply turn on the light where they are playing rather than turning on the main room light which may use more electricity.
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. That`s partly because glass is such an ideal material to make lamps out of as it has an organic natural quality that can take on chameleon-like qualities.
Mini Pendant Lights - As the tiniest version these can illuminate work spaces and kitchen islands well. They`re not thought of as ambient lighting but can reinvent the feeling within a space more than any other options. They act as a focal point or a lighting work of art as they are super stylish and can be quite chic. Anyone will find that they command attention and create vigor.
