Pendant Lights / April 24, 2018 / Nina Bush.
Pendant lighting serves as a multifunctional type of lighting for a various rooms; whether they are over desks, night stands, or a traditional table, these lights are a luxurious home accessory. Yet another aspect of the lights to be admired, the length of the lighting is easily adjusted which can instantly alter the ambiance of the entire room. Placing one or more pendant lights over a kitchen table or throughout an entire dining room will no doubt create a more sleek, elegant look for the room overall. There are also ways to mix and match various luxury sconces with pendant lighting in a retro or shabby chic manner of decor.
You do not only have to use one pendant light, but can use many strung up in a row for a dramatic effect. Kitchen islands look great with this structure put into place, not to mention highly aesthetic. If you are really feeling bold, add different shapes, designs, and colors of the lights to the string for a personal touch of individuality. Try placing them at different heights and angles.
With the use of pendant light, you can easily create the mood and texture of lighting that you prefer for any space. Unlike fixed light sources, this lighting system can be suspended over any area in the house, and can be relocated or repositioned with just a little adjustment. You can hang pendant lights from various heights-you can have them dangling from a high ceiling, or you could choose to have them closer to any part of the home you wish to be highlighted, such as a work area, a piece of artwork or a decorative vignette.
Mini pendants are usually less than 10 inches in width, with downward facing light. Very often these are designed with a modern look and style, using brightly colored glass shades. Mini pendants are perfect for use above kitchen counters, bars, dining tables, and other small seated areas. Often, multiple single mini pendants are hung in a series of 2-5 or more. This is a very common sight in modern restaurants and bars.
