Fanette Legrand Pendant Lighting March 22, 2019 08:33:36
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.
If you have children you may want to add pendants over their play area. These will save you a little money on your power bill since your kids can simply turn on the light where they are playing rather than turning on the main room light which may use more electricity.
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.
Pendant lighting is always a good choice in a home. Whether you use pendants as an alternative to a traditional chandelier in the entryway or over the dining room or as lighting in a bedroom home office or play area pendants are one of the most versatile lighting choices you can make.
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.
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.
