Fanette Legrand Pendant Lighting March 07, 2019 13:28:14
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.
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.
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.
Drum shaped pendant lights made of cloth should be put in the living room. This is because the cloth material collects dust easily. Putting them in a living room or common area makes cleaning easy with a quick dusting.
Small pendants like mini globes are great alternatives to installing track lighting. Their lighting is bright but less intense all around so it is perfect for task lighting in a kitchen or other work area. Hanging small pendants in multiples allows for sufficient lighting. Make sure to hang them above eye level to prevent glare.
