Pendant lighting has lately become of fashion. With each passing day, more and more designs and models of pendant light designs enter the market. The competition is more than ever, and the consumers today have options to select their pendants like never before.
There are many reasons why a person might choose to use this type of lighting in their home. Outside of the fact that it is uniquely and classically beautiful, pendant lighting is great because it is completely out of the way. Table lamps take up tabletop and countertop space and floor lamps can take up as much room in your living space as a small piece of furniture. However these lights hang from the ceiling and drapes just low enough to provide enough lighting for your needs. It is not something that you have to worry about bumping into and it provides just the right amount of light, however much you need. Best of all, you can buy lights to fit whatever your personal style happens to be, so no more having to settle on one thing just because it is the closest to what you are looking for that you are able to find. These lights can be bright or have a more subdued look-it really just depends on what you want and how you want to use them.
These aren’t the only type of shades available; think of a shape and the chances are somebody has designed a pendant light shade to match. You will find triangles, rectangles, globes, bowls, squares, and probably artful combinations of two or more of them. Then there’s frosted glass, painted glass, coloured glass, resin, metal, fabric... The permutations of shape and material are endless and some designers have used them to stunning effect.
They‘re most commonly found in the kitchen over the kitchen table or hanging over the breakfast bar. Island style pendants are very common for a kitchen. This is when more than one light will hang from a center piece in a symmetrical way.
Whatever type of light fitting you‘re thinking of purchasing, you should take time to think about the effect you‘re hoping to achieve, and this means taking into account the size of the space you are planning to illuminate as well as the rest of the dcor. It‘s common sense, after all, that if you’re lighting, say, a narrow hallway, you’ll need a smaller fitting than if you were lighting a large lounge or dining room. In fact, in the larger space you will need more than one pendant to prevent casting ugly shadows.
