Pendant Lights / December 17, 2017 / Virgie Gallagher
Installing dimmers is easy and you can do it yourself without having to call in an electrician if you're simply replacing an existing light. You want to start by shutting off the power to the room on the circuit box. Ideally, you want to use a circuit tester to make sure the power is off to the light before touching the wiring. Assuming the power is off, start by removing the old fixture. If you're replacing a ceiling fan with a pendant, remove the blades first. It makes the process much easier.
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. Glass pendant lights cast off more light than a fabric shaded counterpart. The light can be further altered by the color of the glass used in the fixture. Some glass lights come with opaque or transparent shades that will control the direction of the light. But others are clear, allowing the light to shine through, increasing the beauty and effectiveness of the lights.
