Fanette Legrand Pendant Lighting March 05, 2019 10:36:53
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.
The use of modern pendant lighting is increasingly done for aesthetic reasons as well. They can be used in off-center positions to highlight a particular part or aspect of designing. They can also be used to deflect attention from one part of the room to another.
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.
Clear glass pendants will naturally diffuse light more effectively in all direction. This makes them perfect for spaces like the kitchen and bathroom. Metals with shiny finishes such as polished chrome and brushed nickel can also help reflect light.
If you are putting them in the play area you may want to go with acrylic lights instead of glass pendant lights. As any parent knows children can be pretty rambunctious and lights inevitably end up getting in the way of an errant football or flying Barbie. Better to play it safe and get an unbreakable light.
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.
