There are a huge number of styles to pick from when it comes to kitchen pendant lighting. The Contemporary Style offers metallic and plastic lights in the shape of bells and upside down jars, with a few other shapes. Generally, they go well in modern kitchens and fit well with a kitchen that’s heavily decked out in the latest appliances. The Traditional and Rustic Styles are more classical looking, and have flairs and parts that are nice shapes that go well with traditional wooden kitchen furniture. If you have a stucco pattern on your kitchen ceiling, for example, you might like to go for the Rustic Style of kitchen lighting to match that. Crystal is another popular style for kitchen pendant lighting, and will go best in the most elegant residences or even special places such as town halls or ballroom kitchens in hotels.
A lighting fixture should also coordinate and complement the look and style of the space. While choosing a chandelier, for example, the space it is meant for has to be borne in mind. A huge suspended fixture will look out of place in a small room. There are lighting fixtures for all kinds of lighting requirements. Lighting fixtures in resplendent designs and infinite sizes and ranges flood the market. An automatic or manual control facility increases the lifespan of the lamps, apart from enabling the easy layering of light. The age of individuals, the speed and precision demands of a task and the albedo of the surface are some of the other factors that determine people’s choice of a particular lighting fixture.
Another major difference to be noted between traditional incandescent home lights and LED home lights is how long they last. These have the ability to last for as much as 3 times as long. So although the initial cost of purchasing these types of lights may seem high over the time that they are being used they can prove very cost effective. In many cases by the time you need to replace these kinds of lights you will find that you will need to have replaced more traditional lights in your homes several times.
When deciding where and how to use pendant lighting, first consider the function they should serve. You can use them individually, pair them or use several in a row. A single pendant is great over a small table, such as a dinette or bistro table in the kitchen. For longer areas, you can run multiple pendants while pendants for a kitchen counter can be mounted wherever additional lighting is needed, such as over the sink, a prep area, island or stove.
An interesting observation is that all your kitchen pendants can be installed in your existing ceiling fixture boxes. This implies that you should find it extremely simple to replace your existing ceiling mount fixtures by pendant fixtures without practically any hassle at all. The issue of mounting and installing the fixture on your ceiling is thus completely eliminated. Thus, using these pendants for your table tops and kitchen islands becomes much simpler.
