Pendant Lighting Your Home Can Wear. Anywhere!
Pendant lighting, like the jewelry piece from where it gets its name, is a type of home lighting that combines exceptional lighting beauty with functionality. A pendant light is designed for suspension from a ceiling, anywhere needed around the home, and is becoming increasingly popular among owners of contemporary-styled homes. Pendant lights are available in several colors, designs, materials and lengths, and you may choose a combination that suits your needs.
Today, most online lighting stores have a special section of their merchandise featuring a wide variety of the latest types of light pendants. From crinkle and stained glass pendant light options, to sleek, contemporary pendant lighting styles, you’ll get the pendant light that’s best for your home.
Functional beauty and versatility
Pendant lights offer dual lighting flexibility. They can be used by combining one or more pendant light fixtures to beautify or compliment the lighting/décor of any room or space at home, OR as task-functional lighting to provide the right level of light intensity for any workspace or leisure area. In this manner, you can use your pendant lighting to illuminate specific places or rooms in your home, such as over a kitchen island, dining table, a desk, and even over an area where you read, exercise, entertain, or to highlight special features in your home.
What gives pendant lighting a distinct and convenient advantage over other lighting fixtures, such as table lamps or lighting fixtures that come in your way, is that it frees up spaces for obstructive-free work, leisure activity and other tasks.
Creative flexibility of pendant lights
There are several mix and match, methods to use your pendant light fixtures, and bring out the interior designed in you. This is made possible because pendant lights are available in different lengths and units and are therefore height-adjustable. So, if you wish to hook-up two, three or multiple light pendants, all you’d need are self-adjusting, pendant bars to place pendant lights at varying heights, and in the process, create a visually-pleasing pendant light arrangement.
In general, pendant lighting should be suspended at a minimum height of 2 - 2½ ft above an area to be illuminated. The ideal height for hanging mini pendant lighting fixtures is 1½ - 2 ft above the space required to be lit. If you wish to create a spectacular lighting effect in a large room, you’ll be happy to know that most pendant lighting options come with chains and height-adjusting rods. This will give you the freedom to either create a unique pendant light arrangement, or to light up a larger area.
Purchasing the right pendant lighting
Given the irresistible allure of pendant lights, chances are, you could end up with pendant lighting that may not be suited for general or specific-area lighting in your home. So, before you venture out online and order your light pendants, first determine what specific work/leisure areas and home features you wish to illuminate. If an area requires high light intensity, you’ll need to buy more than one pendant light, on the other hand, if your need is for softer, lower light intensity, you could choose mini pendant lights.
Either way, whatever may be the pendant lighting fixtures you buy, you can be sure you will have made a smart investment in one of the most popular types of home lighting on the market today.
