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.
The use of modern pendant lighting is increasingly done for aesthetic reasons as well. They can be used in off-center positions to highlight a particular part or aspect of designing. They can also be used to deflect attention from one part of the room to another.
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 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.
Clear glass pendants will naturally diffuse light more effectively in all direction. This makes them perfect for spaces like the kitchen and bathroom. Metals with shiny finishes such as polished chrome and brushed nickel can also help reflect light.
Modern glass pendant lighting is a great choice for sleek and clear interior lighting and design. One can add fresh looks to home decor with a clear glass or globe pendant light or professional looks with sharp white circular or cylindrical pendant lights.
