Pendant Lights / December 17, 2017 / Chrystal Bauer
While installing kitchen pendant lighting, you would want to ensure that you install them at the right height. Placing them too high would lose the great focus that pendant lights are capable of producing, and placing them too low would obstruct your movements as well as potentially dazzle your eyes. You need to strike the right balance between the two. The convention that tends to work the best is to fit the kitchen lighting around three to three-and-a-half feet above the table tops and islands. This gives just about the right brightness. Since the tables would lie directly below the pendants, people would not walk through those places and as a result free movement of your family members will not be obstructed. While purchasing your kitchen pendant lighting system, make sure that you consider the size of the light, brightness, style and price factors. Once you take all these factors into account, you shall find that selecting and installing the pendant lighting in your kitchen will become a simple task.
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.
