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.
Pendant lights are an excellent way of setting up task lighting. This can be over a kitchen island study table bedroom a corner of the living room etc. This set up concentrates light only on that portion which is needed for work.
Home-office decoration: Many of us have home-offices. We want our home-offices to look professional and yet it needs to have enough brightness to become a comfortable place to work. A glass pendant lighting system provides a great value to fulfill such requirements. Not only these pendants look impressive enough for making the whole place look more professional these can also hold bright enough lamps to be practically useful. In fact with the great decor improvement a home-office with glass lighting can potentially become a place that your competitors would envy.
Pendant lights drops or suspenders whatever you call them the looks and purpose remain unchanged. They all refer to the hanging lights that instantly change the décor of a simple looking place. It is true that they are mainly used for decoration purposes but a pendant here and a pendant there does make a world of a difference.
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.
One of the best things about glass pendants is that they can be artistic as well as functional. If you`re a fan of Dale Chihuly you can get fiery colored lamps or lamps that look like flowers or other sculptural shapes that will work wonderfully in an entryway or in a stairwell. In fact you can get glass pendant lights that are made specifically as works of art - bold pieces that add splendor and a cascade of light to a living space.
