Lacene Masson Pendant Lighting February 26, 2019 11:37:29
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.
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.
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.
Glass pendants are particularly well suited to a kitchen. Here you can use them over the kitchen island or get mini pendants that are set over the counter tops. These mini pendants work well in a home office too or over the bed in the master.
Of course there are literally thousands of pendants to choose from on the market from traditional designs to those that really double as artwork in the home. Glass pendant lights are particularly popular largely because they offer homeowners a mix of traditional and modern design elements that are both classic and timeless.
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.
