Robinette Boulanger Pendant Lighting March 11, 2019 16:21:05
There are a number of styles of glass lighting. The classic style has always had its own vintage charm. The steel and Tiffany style lighting again serve to different tastes and have different appeals. There are silver golden-colored and bronze-colored finishes with wrought iron intricate works added on the glass base.
Pendant lighting is a popular choice because it is inexpensive and less bulky compared to chandeliers. It also makes for great task lighting in workspaces such as the kitchen. They are attractive focal points while still being a functional lighting source. They save space over a floor or table lamp and provide more ambient lighting over greater surface areas.
Glass pendants are particularly well suited to a kitchen. Here you can use them over the kitchen island or get mini pendants that are set over the counter tops. These mini pendants work well in a home office too or over the bed in the master.
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.
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.
They can also be hung in a group at varying heights to create an artistic lighting look in the corner of a room. Modern pendants are energy saving low voltage models using halogen LED or fluorescent bulbs. They come in a huge variety of sizes and vary in materials. They can be metal cloth glass or plastic.
