Pendant lighting is perfect when homes are being renovated or built. Even whenever the look needs to be updated, pendant lighting is the place to start. Pendants can be modern or traditional and used in any room, from the kitchen to the bedroom. There are many different kinds of pendant lights to choose from, and all say something different about the home’s style. Pendant lighting is a popular choice because it is inexpensive and less bulky compared to chandeliers. It also makes for great task lighting in workspaces, such as the kitchen. They are attractive focal points while still being a functional lighting source. They save space over a floor or table lamp and provide more ambient lighting over greater surface areas.
A Reduced Risk from Heat Damage and Fire. Incandescent spotlights are known to emit a lot of heat, making them less ideal to use for lighting valuable pieces of artwork over an extended period of time. In addition, the high temperature exposes the house to a higher risk of fire and damage to the wall or flooring above the point where it is installed. On the other hand, spotlights that use LEDs can light up a display shelf, a painting or framed portrait, or any other objects because they do not produce heat that can potentially damage these objects.
For example, a halogen bulb should always be housed in an enclosed lighting fixture to avoid the dangerous consequences of a burst halogen bulb. The fixture has to be evaluated on various other parameters, like what type of task it is chosen for, what is the kind of light distribution can be expected from it(given its shades, shape, color, etc.), how does it effect the efficiency of the bulb and what kind of color distribution does it render. Hence, choosing a lighting fixture purely on aesthetic criteria is not a judicious decision.
Investigating features that can be added onto your existing light fixtures is also a great choice when re-inventing your home lighting scheme. For example, if you have sconces placed in your home which shine plain white light, a quick, cheap solution would be to invest in bulbs that mimic the light of candles. The flicker produced by these bulbs and the softer nature of the light can easily make a room more welcoming. Accenting features already present in your home is another important point to remember. Mantles, pictures, or interesting architecture can be accented with a few simple lights. Track lighting is a valuable tool - it works well in lighting artwork as well as softly lighting a mantle. The ease of installation is also an attraction for track lighting.
Some of the lighting fixtures that were used by the kings, rich traders and noblemen have been passed down through generations as antiques. Antique lighting fixtures are invaluable pieces of craftsmanship. They are not only the evidence of excellent craftsmanship but also witnesses of history and the rich culture of the past. They speak volumes for the owner?s taste and choice. When purchasing an antique lighting fixture, it is important to check whether the piece is genuine. The years and the hands it has passed through add value to it.
