If you’re placing pendants above a workspace or table, they should ideally be mounted 30\" to 36\" above the surface. This allows you to get maximum lighting without the pendant fixture getting in the way. If you simply don’t have the space to put them up this high, you may want to go with accent, track or recessed lighting options instead. When thinking about placement, consider hanging the lights temporarily before putting hardware in place. This will allow you to experiment with placement to ensure the lights don’t create harsh shadows or fail to light the desired area adequately.
Investigating features that can be added onto your existing light fixtures is also a great choice when re-inventing your home lighting scheme. For example, if you have sconces placed in your home which shine plain white light, a quick, cheap solution would be to invest in bulbs that mimic the light of candles. The flicker produced by these bulbs and the softer nature of the light can easily make a room more welcoming. Accenting features already present in your home is another important point to remember. Mantles, pictures, or interesting architecture can be accented with a few simple lights. Track lighting is a valuable tool - it works well in lighting artwork as well as softly lighting a mantle. The ease of installation is also an attraction for track lighting.
Don’t forget too that to be beautiful the stem of a pendant lampshade does not have to be really long. Shorter styles with stubbier tubes are reminiscent of the Edwardian and Art Deco eras and look contemporary and timeless at the same time. This is especially true if you can find a style that is shaped like a child’s top, a trapezoid or deconstructed globe as these shapes are typical of this popular Mid-Century look in pendant lighting.

With everyone now inclined towards saving energy and reducing energy consumption every way possible, the LED technology has gained popularity. This is because these lights not only last much longer compared to other traditional light bulbs, but they are also energy efficient. The lights also come in a sleeker design easily adding beauty to an area and offering the much needed illumination at the same time.
