Elisamarie Lambert Pendant Lighting March 22, 2019 08:34:24
When required to light up a huge area and at the same time maintain uniform light throughout the one system is the best. The best example here can be restaurant lighting. A restaurant is a place where guests are seated on different tables and all tables require uniform lighting. The light should be bright enough to help them enjoy a comfortable meal. A pendant hung just over every table will serve the purpose effectively.
Pendants can vary according to size as well. They can either be long or short large or small depending upon the room size and requirement.
If you have children you may want to add pendants over their play area. These will save you a little money on your power bill since your kids can simply turn on the light where they are playing rather than turning on the main room light which may use more electricity.
One of the best things about glass pendants is that they can be artistic as well as functional. If you`re a fan of Dale Chihuly you can get fiery colored lamps or lamps that look like flowers or other sculptural shapes that will work wonderfully in an entryway or in a stairwell. In fact you can get glass pendant lights that are made specifically as works of art - bold pieces that add splendor and a cascade of light to a living space.
A large single pendant is perfect for an entryway where only one source of lighting is needed. This also makes it an artistic focal point. A big pendant works great above a dining room table for the same reason.
If you are putting them in the play area you may want to go with acrylic lights instead of glass pendant lights. As any parent knows children can be pretty rambunctious and lights inevitably end up getting in the way of an errant football or flying Barbie. Better to play it safe and get an unbreakable light.
