Recessed lighting is all very nice in its understated way but the good old pendant light still has a lot going for it. In fact, in some situations, a pendant light really is the only rational choice.
Pendant lights can be placed in a wide-variety of places throughout the home. They can also add a beautiful touch outside the home at your front door. I‘ll discuss some common places to install these lights throughout this article.
It is advisable to mount pendant lighting fixtures at least 24" to 30" above the area to be lit. When mini pendants are used, the ideal height would be 18˝ to 24˝ above the surface area to be lighted. When two or three pendants are used, an adjustable pendant bar can be used to fix them at different heights. This makes it possible to adjust heights from time to time, varying the overall lighting effect in the process.
There is however one drawback. Most of these lights are designed to push light directly on to the space you want lit. Generally, they are more spot light in nature. And while there are some pendants that disperse light over a wide area, if this is your goal you may need to look elsewhere. Or better still, use a different fixture to disperse light, and use a pendant to highlight certain areas of the room. In most cases, but certainly not all, pendant lights will not be your sole source of light in a room.
Setting focus: Since you get to control the height of installation of the light fixture in lights that hang, you install the bottom of the light at lower heights at places that you need better intensity of light. That gives you a better focus in places such as study tables, kitchen islands and dining table tops. If you are a fan of pool, ceiling lighting is the last thing that you want given an option of pendant lighting.
