Pendant lighting is best when it is used as supplemental lighting. In other words, all spaces in your home should have a certain level of ambient illumination. This can be accomplished through recessed ceiling lights, down lighting techniques, which shed light on specific areas, or through the use of ceiling fixtures such as chandeliers. The secondary lighting strategy for the room would be more task oriented. These lights illuminate specific areas of the room, such as a table lamp that can be used for reading when set next to a sofa or a floor lamp that illuminates a couple of chairs paired together.
Most companies that manufacture indoor lighting fixtures provide a one- year guarantee, along with regular information on the new designs of lighting fixtures available. Indoor lighting fixtures can be installed by referring to the manual provided. However, it is recommended that installation be done under the supervision of a professional.
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.
Yet another style of pendant lighting that seems to never go out of style is the Colonial. This type of lighting features a shade that looks like a lantern with a candle inside. A similar style is the Storybook style, which is made of cast iron and hangs from a heavy chain. Both of these styles tend to look better out of doors but they were often found indoors in the seventies if you are going for that kind of \"horse drawn carriage\" reference in your décor.
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.
