Madeleine Lefebvre Pendant Lights January 07, 2018 00:09:03
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.
Glass pendants are particularly well suited to a kitchen. Here you can use them over the kitchen island or get mini pendants that are set over the counter tops. These mini pendants work well in a home office too, or over the bed in the master.
Clear glass pendants will naturally diffuse light more effectively in all direction. This makes them perfect for spaces like the kitchen and bathroom. Metals with shiny finishes, such as polished chrome and brushed nickel, can also help reflect light.
Pendant lighting involves small individual lights that are spread across a region. When one is switched on, it is not necessary to switch on the others. As against a huge chandelier, this saves energy to a great extent.
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.
Small pendants, like mini globes, are great alternatives to installing track lighting. Their lighting is bright but less intense all around, so it is perfect for task lighting in a kitchen or other work area. Hanging small pendants in multiples allows for sufficient lighting. Make sure to hang them above eye level to prevent glare.
