Elisamarie Lambert Pendant Lighting March 11, 2019 16:21:13
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.
If you are putting them in the play area you may want to go with acrylic lights instead of glass pendant lights. As any parent knows children can be pretty rambunctious and lights inevitably end up getting in the way of an errant football or flying Barbie. Better to play it safe and get an unbreakable light.
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.
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.
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.
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.
