Pendants are optimally used in places that cannot accommodate a table lamp. For example a corner of a living room might not have enough space to fit in a lamp shade. In such cases suspending the light brightens up the place and at the same time saves on space.
Pendant lighting is always a good choice in a home. Whether you use pendants as an alternative to a traditional chandelier in the entryway or over the dining room or as lighting in a bedroom home office or play area pendants are one of the most versatile lighting choices you can make.
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.
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.
Glass pendants are particularly well suited to a kitchen. Here you can use them over the kitchen island or get mini pendants that are set over the counter tops. These mini pendants work well in a home office too or over the bed in the master.
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.
