Elisamarie Rousseau Pendant Lights March 17, 2018 02:08:47
Up Light Pendants - Up Light Pendants are fixtures that shine light upward. This type is great for basic lighting, as the light shines skyward and can enlarge a space with ease. One will find that ceramic, glass or wooden pendant lights in this style make a statement.
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 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.
A pendant light is also known as a drop or suspender. It is a lone light fixture that hangs from the ceiling, suspended by a cord, chain, or metal rod. Used by themselves, pendant lights present a striking feature to a room. More often they are hung in multiples in a straight line over countertops, dining tables, or bathrooms.
Pendants are optimally used in places that cannot accommodate a table lamp. For example, a corner of a living room might not have enough space to fit in a lamp shade. In such cases, suspending the light brightens up the place and, at the same time, saves on space.
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.
