Katriane Boulanger Pendant Lights March 09, 2018 23:08:00
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.
Pendant lights, drops, or suspenders, whatever you call them, the looks and purpose remain unchanged. They all refer to the hanging lights that instantly change the décor of a simple looking place. It is true that they are mainly used for decoration purposes, but a pendant here and a pendant there does make a world of a difference.
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.
Blown glass pendants are more popular than ever these days. Looking as if an artisan made them, they have small imperfections such as bubbles in the surface, giving them a handmade look. Others have been blown to have a stained-lass effect, being a mix of several different colors or hues of the same color. As such, no two are exactly alike so pairing them adds even more visual interest to the space. In fact, it`s hard for visitors to your home to not be enraptured by the fixtures, given their slight imperfections and ever changing shapes as they hang above a living space.
Pendant lights are an excellent way of setting up task lighting. This can be over a kitchen island, study table, bedroom, a corner of the living room, etc. This set up concentrates light only on that portion which is needed for work.
Pendant lights are a simple yet very effective way of perking up the looks of a simple looking place. At appropriately places, they not only add charm to the place, but also create a comfortable atmosphere.
