Elisamarie Lambert Pendant Lighting March 20, 2019 10:20:12
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.
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.
They can also be hung in a group at varying heights to create an artistic lighting look in the corner of a room. Modern pendants are energy saving low voltage models using halogen LED or fluorescent bulbs. They come in a huge variety of sizes and vary in materials. They can be metal cloth glass or plastic.
Mini Pendant Lights - As the tiniest version these can illuminate work spaces and kitchen islands well. They`re not thought of as ambient lighting but can reinvent the feeling within a space more than any other options. They act as a focal point or a lighting work of art as they are super stylish and can be quite chic. Anyone will find that they command attention and create vigor.
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 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.
