Evonne Bonnet Pendant Lighting March 04, 2019 10:35:21
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 lights are a simple yet very effective way of perking up the looks of a simple looking place. At appropriately places they not only add charm to the place but also create a comfortable atmosphere.
