Up Light Pendants - Up Light Pendants are fixtures that shine light upward. This type is great for basic lighting as the light shines skyward and can enlarge a space with ease. One will find that ceramic glass or wooden pendant lights in this style make a statement.
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.
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 stained-lass effect being a mix of several different colors or hues of the same color. As such no two are exactly alike so pairing them adds even more visual interest to the space. In fact it`s 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.
Plastic is the most cost effective but they are prone to discolouration over time. Use plastic in corners and nooks that are not highly trafficked in order to make them last longer. This material makes them perfect for a pendant grouping that serves as an aesthetic home feature.
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.
Glass pendant lights cast off more light than a fabric shaded counterpart. The light can be further altered by the color of the glass used in the fixture. Some glass lights come with opaque or transparent shades that will control the direction of the light. But others are clear allowing the light to shine through increasing the beauty and effectiveness of the lights.
