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.
One of the best things about glass pendants is that they can be artistic as well as functional. If you`re a fan of Dale Chihuly, you can get fiery colored lamps or lamps that look like flowers or other sculptural shapes that will work wonderfully in an entryway or in a stairwell. In fact, you can get glass pendant lights that are made specifically as works of art - bold pieces that add splendor and a cascade of light to a living space.
Depending on their design, glass pendant lights can fit perfectly in a rustic, country inspired home or in a modernist home filled with contemporary furnishings. That`s partly because glass is such an ideal material to make lamps out of as it has an organic, natural quality that can take on chameleon-like qualities.
LED bulbs are becoming the more popular choice for pendant lighting. They are perfect for task lighting and they are energy efficient, but they can be more expensive than traditional bulbs. However, LED bulbs also last longer than standard bulbs. The style of the pendant determines the bulb required.
What are the utilities that one would enjoy using glass pendant lighting? There are a number of plus points. The primary ones are listed below.
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.
