Pendants can be hung in pairs or in a chain-think of matte silver steel overhanging lights that are positioned above the line of a long kitchen island. It can be placed in clusters-you can put together a bunch of lanterns in varying sizes and colours, place them in a corner of a room, and you now have an elegant, luminous, gorgeous bouquet of light. Then again, you can simply hang a single, lone pendant in a strategic area where it can serve as a minimalist and practical lighting solution.
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.
Keep in mind that these types of lights do come in a variety of shapes and sizes so be sure to choose the version that most appropriately fits your space. You might want to measure the area first before purchasing the pendant. You do not want to stick a bulky light that is too big in a small space or this will defeat the purpose of what you are trying to accomplish.
Speaking of maintenance, take that into account when shopping for your light fixtures. If you’re not prepared to put the maintenance into the fixture, then you’ll want to opt for a piece that is less maintenance. For example, that crystal chandelier might look grand and will fit your space perfectly, but it may require routine cleaning of the crystals to ensure they stay bright and flashy. If you’re willing to clean each and every individual crystal, you may want to opt for a different fixture, such as one with fewer crystals, that will take up less of your time.
First Lights First. Starting a new lighting style for your home often start with a Chandelier. A chandelier for the entry, dining room or stairway is an excellent place to start shopping for a new lighting design. This is the base on which you can design the rest of your home lighting interior. Think of the chandelier as the center piece of rest of the lighting equation. Chandeliers add functional illumination to your dining room, bathroom, foyer, or outside patio, while captivating attention and adding a source of vivid radiance. The next step is figuring the ceiling lighting and wall sconce fixtures. Many lighting manufactures create entire collections of similar light fixtures to make a series of chandeliers, sconces, ceiling fixtures, fans, pendants, etc.
