Evonne Bonnet Pendant Lighting March 07, 2019 13:28:16
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.
Pendant lighting is a popular choice because it is inexpensive and less bulky compared to chandeliers. It also makes for great task lighting in workspaces such as the kitchen. They are attractive focal points while still being a functional lighting source. They save space over a floor or table lamp and provide more ambient lighting over greater surface areas.
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.
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.
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.
Pendant lighting involves small individual lights that are spread across a region. When one is switched on it is not necessary to switch on the others. As against a huge chandelier this saves energy to a great extent.
