Metal glass and wooden pendant lights are all popular choices. They come in mini multi drum up light and down light versions. Explore these different styles below.
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.
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.
Down Light Pendants - Down Light Pendants are fixtures that shine direct light downward and they are best for work lighting to completely illuminate any task at hand.
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.
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.
