Evonne Bonnet Pendant Lighting March 07, 2019 13:28:16
Pendant lighting is perfect when homes are being renovated or built. Even whenever the look needs to be updated pendant lighting is the place to start. Pendants can be modern or traditional and used in any room from the kitchen to the bedroom. There are many different kinds of pendant lights to choose from and all say something different about the home`s style.
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.
Murano Glass Chandeliers refers to a series of lights of the same type. Their purpose is to provide uniform light throughout the area. The name comes from a group of Murano islands that are interlinked by bridges in the Venetian lagoon.
To some extent modern ones differs from its traditional counterparts in one manner. They are now operated on battery too. One reason for this could be the absence of electric sockets at desired locations.
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.
