Fanette Legrand Pendant Lighting February 15, 2019 12:01:52
Up Light Pendants - Up Light Pendants are fixtures that shine light upward. This type is great for basic lighting as the light shines skyward and can enlarge a space with ease. One will find that ceramic glass or wooden pendant lights in this style make a statement.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
