Of course there are literally thousands of pendants to choose from on the market from traditional designs to those that really double as artwork in the home. Glass pendant lights are particularly popular largely because they offer homeowners a mix of traditional and modern design elements that are both classic and timeless.
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.
Pendant lighting is perfect when homes are being renovated or built. Even whenever the look needs to be updated pendant lighting is the place to start. Pendants can be modern or traditional and used in any room from the kitchen to the bedroom. There are many different kinds of pendant lights to choose from and all say something different about the home`s style.
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.
Glass pendant lights cast off more light than a fabric shaded counterpart. The light can be further altered by the color of the glass used in the fixture. Some glass lights come with opaque or transparent shades that will control the direction of the light. But others are clear allowing the light to shine through increasing the beauty and effectiveness of the lights.
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.
