Fanette Legrand Pendant Lighting March 24, 2019 08:37:17
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.
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.
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.
Pendant lights are an excellent way of setting up task lighting. This can be over a kitchen island study table bedroom a corner of the living room etc. This set up concentrates light only on that portion which is needed for work.
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.
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.
