Although it has been around since the 1940’s, this type of lighting is just coming into its own as homes are built with higher ceilings. Although there is no evidence of this, the development of the pendant light was probably a reaction to finding a form of lighting that was less elaborate than the chandelier but that served basically the same function and purpose.

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.

First remove the globe or dome or canopy that shrouds the light bulb. Be careful, most are made of glass. Once removed, take out the bulbs and place them aside too. Now look for either a single nut or a pair of screws that are holding the fixture to the ceiling box. Remove the screws and the body of the old fixture from the ceiling. Oh, you say there are wires connected to it, fantastic. Remove the wires but remember what colors went where. First remove the red or black hot wire by unscrewing the wire nut. Once disconnected, use the wire nut to recover the hot wire hanging from your ceiling box. Now remove the white wire, this is your neutral wire. Again, cover the lead coming from the box. Now lastly remove the copper colored or green wire, this will be your ground wire. Ok, you are doing great. Put the old fixture aside. I know you have already opened your new light because thats what people do. We love to open presents, and get new stuff. I know I do.
