Isabelle Logan. Pendant Light. July 12th , 2018.
In hallways and other areas, it adds grace and striking style. The light and shadows cast by them is astounding. Hang them in an even row down the length of a hall for a classic look, or hang one by itself or in a cluster in a foyer. The length should fall between twelve and sixteen inches for a typical 8-foot ceiling, and eighteen to twenty-four for taller ceilings.
The different styles of kitchen pendant lighting There are a huge number of styles to pick from when it comes to kitchen pendant lighting. The Contemporary Style offers metallic and plastic lights in the shape of bells and upside down jars, with a few other shapes. Generally, they go well in modern kitchens and fit well with a kitchen that's heavily decked out in the latest appliances. The Traditional and Rustic Styles are more classical looking, and have flairs and parts that are nice shapes that go well with traditional wooden kitchen furniture. If you have a stucco pattern on your kitchen ceiling, for example, you might like to go for the Rustic Style of kitchen lighting to match that. Crystal is another popular style for kitchen pendant lighting, and will go best in the most elegant residences or even special places such as town halls or ballroom kitchens in hotels.
A slight contradiction in design is worth noting here. One of the more appealing uses of the pendant during the past decade, is in the kitchen. These fixtures are often suspended over a kitchen island or other food preparation area and feature an open-ended bottom through which a soft light is emitted. This is a very attractive feature in the right kind of kitchen because of the even lighting it provides. This type of pendant fixture is also finding its way into other areas of the home.
Pendant lighting has emerged as a great alternative to the classical ceiling lighting. In fact, if you dig deep into history, pendant lighting is one of the oldest forms of light installations. The old palaces and castles had great-looking pendant lights with fantastic fixtures. Pendant lighting resembled aristocracy during those days. And even nowadays, with ceiling mounted fixtures being the conventional form of lighting, pendant lighting remains the more aristocratic form of lighting.
One of the mistakes some homeowners make is to try and use a Tiffany style lampshade on a pendant fixture. Don't get me wrong; Tiffany definitely has its place. Floor lamps and table lamps often add a dramatic flair when used with a Tiffany lampshade. The pendant, on the other hand, is designed to be slim and sleek and putting a Tiffany fixture on the end of one defeats the purpose, in my opinion, because you are really mismatching functional styles. I suggest that you stay with the more traditional style of pendant lighting such as something called the Colonial. This impressive fixture features a shade that gives one the appearance of a lantern with a candle inside.
