Pendant Lights / April 26, 2018 / Tabitha Peters
When shopping for and selecting mini pendant lights, you want to consider a couple things. First, you want to consider how the light is cast downward as well as in other directions. In some cases, you may need to have additional lighting in the room, such as recessed cans or a central chandelier. If your lights don't have a lens, you may find that glare is a problem, particularly with mini pendant lights that use higher intensity bulbs. Speaking of bulbs, mini pendants are available with incandescent, halogen and energy saving compact fluorescent lights. Using a dimmer can help you get the most out of whichever bulb you choose.
An interesting observation is that all your kitchen pendants can be installed in your existing ceiling fixture boxes. This implies that you should find it extremely simple to replace your existing ceiling mount fixtures by pendant fixtures without practically any hassle at all. The issue of mounting and installing the fixture on your ceiling is thus completely eliminated. Thus, using these pendants for your table tops and kitchen islands becomes much simpler. Please note that pendants hang physically and tend to occupy a larger diameter compared to the ceiling lights. So even if you have a ceiling light along the perimeter of your kitchen, installing the pendants using the same mount fixtures may not be easy. Hence if you desire such installation, getting professional help is suggested.
