Elisamarie Lambert Pendant Lighting March 11, 2019 16:21:13
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.
Pendant lights are a simple yet very effective way of perking up the looks of a simple looking place. At appropriately places they not only add charm to the place but also create a comfortable atmosphere.
Light will either be directed up or down depending on the shape or type of shade used. Pendants that are inverted will stream light to the ceiling. This provides ambient or mood lighting in a space. Pendants with open bottoms focus light downward allowing them to be task lighting above a workspace like a kitchen island.
Pendants are optimally used in places that cannot accommodate a table lamp. For example a corner of a living room might not have enough space to fit in a lamp shade. In such cases suspending the light brightens up the place and at the same time saves on space.
When required to light up a huge area and at the same time maintain uniform light throughout the one system is the best. The best example here can be restaurant lighting. A restaurant is a place where guests are seated on different tables and all tables require uniform lighting. The light should be bright enough to help them enjoy a comfortable meal. A pendant hung just over every table will serve the purpose effectively.
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.
