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.
Drum Pendant Lights - Drum Pendants are light fixtures featuring a cylindrical drum-style shade. These types work seamlessly in every room. Choose a basic white cloth shade or a dark shade with metal features. There are also patterned shades to add fun as well as double or triple concentric styles that have gained in popularity as of late. Anyone that wants to add some style can easily do so with a drum pendant light.
A pendant light is also known as a drop or suspender. It is a lone light fixture that hangs from the ceiling suspended by a cord chain or metal rod. Used by themselves pendant lights present a striking feature to a room. More often they are hung in multiples in a straight line over countertops dining tables or bathrooms.
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.
If you are putting them in the play area you may want to go with acrylic lights instead of glass pendant lights. As any parent knows children can be pretty rambunctious and lights inevitably end up getting in the way of an errant football or flying Barbie. Better to play it safe and get an unbreakable light.
Depending on their design glass pendant lights can fit perfectly in a rustic country inspired home or in a modernist home filled with contemporary furnishings. That`s partly because glass is such an ideal material to make lamps out of as it has an organic natural quality that can take on chameleon-like qualities.
