Evonne Bonnet Pendant Lighting March 10, 2019 21:06:15
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.
LED bulbs are becoming the more popular choice for pendant lighting. They are perfect for task lighting and they are energy efficient but they can be more expensive than traditional bulbs. However LED bulbs also last longer than standard bulbs. The style of the pendant determines the bulb required.
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.
Drum shaped pendant lights made of cloth should be put in the living room. This is because the cloth material collects dust easily. Putting them in a living room or common area makes cleaning easy with a quick dusting.
Small pendants like mini globes are great alternatives to installing track lighting. Their lighting is bright but less intense all around so it is perfect for task lighting in a kitchen or other work area. Hanging small pendants in multiples allows for sufficient lighting. Make sure to hang them above eye level to prevent glare.
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.
