Pendant Lights / April 24, 2018 / Nina Bush
Pendant lighting is not to be mistaken for chandelier lighting, which casts a softer more ambient light. Pendant lighting is usually hung from a single sconce on the ceiling from which sprouts a single chain or metal tube. The lamp shade itself is the \"pendant\" that dangles at the end. Pendant lighting is considerably more practical than other types of lighting, which is why you often see them in kitchens, bathrooms, hallways and other places that need to be well lit. Usually the shade on a pendant style light fixture is completely enclosed and made out of a white, cream or opaque glass.
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.
