There are a number of styles of glass lighting. The classic style has always had its own vintage charm. The steel and Tiffany style lighting again serve to different tastes and have different appeals. There are silver, golden-colored and bronze-colored finishes with wrought iron intricate works added on the glass base.
Pendant lighting is always a good choice in a home. Whether you use pendants as an alternative to a traditional chandelier in the entryway or over the dining room, or as lighting in a bedroom, home office or play area, pendants are one of the most versatile lighting choices you can make.
Drum shaped pendant lights made of cloth should be put in the living room. This is because the cloth material collects dust easily. Putting them in a living room or common area makes cleaning easy with a quick dusting.
Glass pendant lights cast off more light than a fabric shaded counterpart. The light can be further altered by the color of the glass used in the fixture. Some glass lights come with opaque or transparent shades that will control the direction of the light. But others are clear, allowing the light to shine through, increasing the beauty and effectiveness of the lights.
Entryways need to have pendant lights seven feet above the floor. A pendant in the dining room needs to be at least 30 inches above the table. Pendants used for a kitchen island need to be 30 to 40 inches above the counter. The height of the tallest person in the home needs to be considered. Make sure all pendants are at least 20 to 25 inches above the top of the tallest person`s head.
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.
