Robinette Boulanger Pendant Lighting March 07, 2019 13:28:10
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.
Pendant lighting involves small individual lights that are spread across a region. When one is switched on it is not necessary to switch on the others. As against a huge chandelier this saves energy to a great extent.
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.
Drum Pendant Lights - Drum Pendants are light fixtures featuring a cylindrical drum-style shade. These types work seamlessly in every room. Choose a basic white cloth shade or a dark shade with metal features. There are also patterned shades to add fun as well as double or triple concentric styles that have gained in popularity as of late. Anyone that wants to add some style can easily do so with a drum pendant light.
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.
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.
