Pendant lights drops or suspenders whatever you call them the looks and purpose remain unchanged. They all refer to the hanging lights that instantly change the décor of a simple looking place. It is true that they are mainly used for decoration purposes but a pendant here and a pendant there does make a world of a difference.
Drum Pendant Lights - Drum Pendants are light fixtures featuring a cylindrical drum-style shade. These types work seamlessly in every room. Choose a basic white cloth shade or a dark shade with metal features. There are also patterned shades to add fun as well as double or triple concentric styles that have gained in popularity as of late. Anyone that wants to add some style can easily do so with a drum pendant light.
Pendant lighting is always a good choice in a home. Whether you use pendants as an alternative to a traditional chandelier in the entryway or over the dining room or as lighting in a bedroom home office or play area pendants are one of the most versatile lighting choices you can make.
Light will either be directed up or down depending on the shape or type of shade used. Pendants that are inverted will stream light to the ceiling. This provides ambient or mood lighting in a space. Pendants with open bottoms focus light downward allowing them to be task lighting above a workspace like a kitchen island.
Plastic is the most cost effective but they are prone to discolouration over time. Use plastic in corners and nooks that are not highly trafficked in order to make them last longer. This material makes them perfect for a pendant grouping that serves as an aesthetic home feature.
Entryways need to have pendant lights seven feet above the floor. A pendant in the dining room needs to be at least 30 inches above the table. Pendants used for a kitchen island need to be 30 to 40 inches above the counter. The height of the tallest person in the home needs to be considered. Make sure all pendants are at least 20 to 25 inches above the top of the tallest person`s head.
