In choosing and shopping for the lighting equipments and fixtures for your house, an important note to remember is the visuals of a light furniture can easily be the source of attraction and beauty of a room. The design and purpose for which the lighting will serve should not be compromised. In planning for lighting, the home owner should consider the activities each of the room of the house is used for and the room’s size before choose the appropriate one. Keep in mind and understand that improper lighting can affect our health as well. The mind is kept fresh, agile and strong when there is enough light in a room, while dimmer and dark interiors can induce negativity to our overall thinking and creativity. Depending on your purpose, some may choose to opt for a dimmer lighting for create a mysterious feel in the room.
Pendant lighting has become very popular recently. From kitchen islands, to restaurants bars and museums, pendants are seen everywhere these days, perhaps more than any other type of lighting. The simplicity of a single, downward facing light, hung from a single cord, chain or stem, is very visually appealing and attractive. Vivid multi-hued glass designs are often used, bringing a focal point of color to an otherwise uninspired room or space. And many styles are available, including mini pendants, bowl pendants, lantern pendants, drum pendants, and multi light pendants.
So, you’re redesigning your interior spaces and the subject of lighting comes up. You want to go with a more contemporary look, and are intrigued by the idea of pendant lighting. But which lighting solution is best for you - pendants or mini pendants? That’s a good question, and one with no simple answer. That’s because there’s no real standards regarding what is and what isn’t a mini pendant. All pendant lights are designed to shine light on a specific area. Think of them as spotlights in a theater. They can be used as your primary lighting for a room or they can be used as supplemental lighting to create drama, add more light to a specific area, such as a kitchen counter top, or create focal points in the room, such as adding pendants over a buffet in the dining room or over your desk in your home office.
Shades on pendant style lighting, which was first popularized in the forties in the form of gorgeous blown glass shells, have evolved to compromise all sorts of styles. Some of the most attractive styles of pendant lighting are inspired from this era which features glass globes that have been stepped or squared off with Art Deco touches. You can also find square or triangular open flute art deco shades that have wrought iron details and pastel colored glass panels. Pendant style Tiffany lampshades are also quite striking looking but one problem with them is that they are not quite in style as a pendant. Floor lamps and table lamps look more contemporary then the hanging Tiffany lamps, which unfortunately can make your place, look too much like the interior of a chain restaurant.
The choice should be made after taking various aspects into consideration. One among the most important factors to take into consideration is the energy consumed by the pendants. You should also make it a point to select pendants that are not too bright as bright outdoor pendants can be a disturbance for the neighbors. You may also check for the pendants with dedicated switches for adjusting the brightness of the light.
