Pierrette Lejeune Pendant Lights March 17, 2018 02:06:52
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.
Metal, glass and wooden pendant lights are all popular choices. They come in mini, multi, drum, up light and down light versions. Explore these different styles below.
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 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.
A large, single pendant is perfect for an entryway where only one source of lighting is needed. This also makes it an artistic focal point. A big pendant works great above a dining room table for the same reason.
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.
