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.
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.
The use of modern pendant lighting is increasingly done for aesthetic reasons as well. They can be used in off-center positions to highlight a particular part or aspect of designing. They can also be used to deflect attention from one part of the room to another.
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.
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.
If you have children, you may want to add pendants over their play area. These will save you a little money on your power bill since your kids can simply turn on the light where they are playing, rather than turning on the main room light, which may use more electricity.
