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.
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.
One of the best things about glass pendants is that they can be artistic as well as functional. If you`re a fan of Dale Chihuly you can get fiery colored lamps or lamps that look like flowers or other sculptural shapes that will work wonderfully in an entryway or in a stairwell. In fact you can get glass pendant lights that are made specifically as works of art - bold pieces that add splendor and a cascade of light to a living space.
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.
LED bulbs are becoming the more popular choice for pendant lighting. They are perfect for task lighting and they are energy efficient but they can be more expensive than traditional bulbs. However LED bulbs also last longer than standard bulbs. The style of the pendant determines the bulb required.
Home interior lighting: Your home interior can be lightened up by glass lighting. You need to identify the area that you want to light up. Once you have one so install a few such lights at uniform spacing fro the best of looks. If you are running relatively hard on budget then you can simply install one pendant in a central position of the area and add a powerful light in the pendant.
