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. 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.
You can place pendant lights so that they provide a direct source of shining illumination to deliberate areas such as a corner of a room, ceiling, decorative object, and photos. These light casting structures look great in hallways, bathrooms, bedrooms, and more. Wherever light is needed, a pendant can accommodate. Perhaps you have a dark area in your office that you would like to light up a bit. A pendant can deliver character, contrast, and a modern touch to your space. If you are tired of using traditional means of light sources and want to something more alluring and unique, you are able to do this with pendant designs because they are flexible.
One of the mistakes some homeowners make is to try and use a Tiffany style lampshade on a pendant fixture. Don’t get me wrong; Tiffany definitely has its place. Floor lamps and table lamps often add a dramatic flair when used with a Tiffany lampshade. The pendant, on the other hand, is designed to be slim and sleek and putting a Tiffany fixture on the end of one defeats the purpose, in my opinion, because you are really mismatching functional styles. I suggest that you stay with the more traditional style of pendant lighting such as something called the Colonial. This impressive fixture features a shade that gives one the appearance of a lantern with a candle inside.
Benefits of LED Street Lights. Substituting traditional street lights with the new LED street light fixture is the best thing that can happen to our environment. These lights are affordable and energy efficient. Today, all around the world, incandescent lights are being replaced by LEDs, on highways, roads and parking lots. The lights are very bright; they give out directional light instead of a dispersed glow. Hence, they can be targeted on precise areas. They turn on immediately, but its quality of being highly energy-efficient is what is indeed amazing; for example, a 60-watt incandescent bulb gives out the same energy as a 10-watt LED bulb. Isn’t this sufficient reason to replace all your old bulbs to LEDs? Another great advantage is its lifespan which is an incredible 50,000 hours. Consequently, there is no maintenance required. These bulbs are eco-friendly as neither mercury nor lead is used. No toxins are emitted and there is no question of getting overheated.
