Pendant lighting is particularly well-suited to the kitchen. It goes well over a kitchen island, over a dining area, over the sink or the breakfast bar. They are a great way to bring task lighting throughout the kitchen area. In the dining room or the dining area of your kitchen, unless you have a really small dining table, a single pendant lamp will rarely be adequate. What you do is, you hang two or three full-sized pendant lamps or five or six mini-sized ones to cover the entire area of the dining table and the dining room. Experimenting with mixing lights of different suspension lengths can create an interesting effect that can certainly turn out to be more high-tech looking then what a chandelier could achieve.
A pendant light is also known as a drop or suspender. It is a lone light fixture that hangs from the ceiling, suspended by a cord, chain, or metal rod. Used by themselves, pendant lights present a striking feature to a room. More often they are hung in multiples in a straight line over countertops, dining tables, or bathrooms. They can also be hung in a group at varying heights to create an artistic lighting look in the corner of a room. Modern pendants are energy saving low voltage models using halogen, LED, or fluorescent bulbs. They come in a huge variety of sizes and vary in materials. They can be metal, cloth, glass, or plastic.
Indoor lighting fixtures not only provide light, but also set the mood and ambience of the space. The lighting of a home is a difficult task, even for professionals, since each room needs to be dealt with differently. Interior designers usually opt for durable and light- weight materials, when choosing the appropriate lighting fixtures. Indoor lighting fixtures are easily available in various colors, shapes, designs and power options. Usually, the common light bulb is used. Some fixtures use higher wattage bulbs, especially in large areas. Interior lights are available as art lighting, clip lighting, mood lighting, picture lighting, bathroom lighting, bathroom lighting pendants, vanity strips, cabinet lighting, puck lights and the common ceiling lights.
Plastic is the most cost effective, but they are prone to discolouration over time. Use plastic in corners and nooks that are not highly trafficked in order to make them last longer. This material makes them perfect for a pendant grouping that serves as an aesthetic home feature. A large, single pendant is perfect for an entryway where only one source of lighting is needed. This also makes it an artistic focal point. A big pendant works great above a dining room table for the same reason.
You can often begin your quest to find the perfect kitchen lighting on the Internet. Just searching in Google will bring up a lot of stores that sell different types of lighting. Browse through and learn a few popular brand names and get familiar with any styles that you like particularly. Some of the more popular brands are Besa, Dale Tiffany, Landmark, Murray Feiss and Vaxcel.
