Lilia Wise. Pendant Light. July 16th , 2018.
Pendant lighting is a relative newcomer to the market of home lighting fixtures. Although it has been around since the 1940's, this type of lighting is just coming into its own as homes are built with higher ceilings. Although there is no evidence of this, the development of the pendant light was probably a reaction to finding a form of lighting that was less elaborate than the chandelier but that served basically the same function and purpose.
If there is a general rule of thumb about what constitutes mini pendant lights, it's that they are usually less than 12" in size. Three to four mini pendant lights cast about as much light as two regular pendants that have two bulbs each. The beauty of minis, however, is that you can use more of them over a greater area, creating innovative lighting solutions for a room that really make it stand out. If you want to conserve energy, there is a wide selection of low voltage mini pendant lights to choose from.
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.
When deciding where and how to use pendant lighting, first consider the function they should serve. You can use them individually, pair them or use several in a row. A single pendant is great over a small table, such as a dinette or bistro table in the kitchen. For longer areas, you can run multiple pendants while pendants for a kitchen counter can be mounted wherever additional lighting is needed, such as over the sink, a prep area, island or stove.
Pendant lighting can be used creatively to delineate areas of space within a room. So, by using your imagination and creative flair, you can use the lighting to segment your room into different areas, perhaps having an corner for listening to music or reading a book, for example. Also, having multiple pendant lights hanging together is a more effective way of showcasing your lighting and visually looks better too.
