During its earliest days, the pendant featured a blown glass shell, which eventually evolved into a wide variety of styles. Today, the variety of styles used in pendant lighting is as varied as the styles used in other forms of lighting fixtures. Take a look online or at a fine lighting store or even in a home and garden periodical to see the extent to which this type of lighting has evolved.
First of all, always consider the purpose of the lighting. A chandelier would not be hung in the garage because it simply does not fit the purpose of the area. Remember that the light fixtures placed in the room are there to coordinate with the purpose of the space. For entertainment rooms, lights that can be dimmed are an excellent choice; they compliment the purpose of the room, which is usually to entertain guests or to watch television or movies. Dimming light fixtures give the room the feel of a theater and soften the edges in the room, making it more welcoming. However, if you have a living room that is primarily used for reading, track lighting or well-placed lamps are important to relieve stress on the eyes. The purpose of the room and the purpose of the lighting fixture always go hand-in-hand.
It is important to remember that higher quality light fixtures will produce the same light quality as a lower quality light fixture; because the light quality is contained entirely in the light bulb itself and not the fixture. Therefore, when you’re shopping, don’t be fooled by claims that state that their light fixture will produce better light than another, cheaper light fixture. As long as you’re using the same light bulb, the light will be the same.
Pendant kitchen lighting fixtures are decorative fixtures. They typically suspend from the ceiling and offer general as well as task lighting. Most kitchen designers prefer placing them over counter areas or over islands where dining, conversation, baking as well as food preparation occurs. A good example of pendant lighting fixtures is the mini-pendant, which is usually used for small kitchen spaces and is approximately 12 inches or less. Another example is the island light or multi-light pendant, which works well bigger spaces that require more lighting.

For an entry foyer, add the width and length dimensions of the foyer together and the calculated total equal the maximum pendant diameter.
