Give your room a unique sense of structure and substance, showing funky and sometimes fascinatingly strange shapes. Pendants set the tone for whatever room or environment they are in and whether contemporary or not, these hanging ceiling fixtures create a sense of collected calm that is appropriate for the room. Hanging lamps also offer an alternative to traditional chandeliers or portable table lamps and floor lamps, contributing illumination from a single light source rather than many.
Choosing for the perfect Pendant light for your home?
A pendant light, sometimes called a drop or suspender, is a lone light fixture that hangs from the ceiling usually suspended by a cord, chain, or metal rod. Pendant lights are often used in multiples, hung in a straight line over kitchen counter tops and dinette sets or sometimes in bathrooms. Pendants come in a huge variety of sizes and vary in materials from metal to glass or concrete and plastic. Many modern pendants are energy-saving low voltage models and some use halogen or fluorescent bulbs.
You might want to consider your décor and the overall style of your home and go from there. Try to choose similar or complementary colors, or go big and bold with a pendant light that provides an interesting contrast to the room. Large, single pendant lights can make a statement, but don’t overlook smaller options as these can be just as bold when grouped together. If you do decide to go with a set of hanging lights, remember the “Rule of Three”, which will help you maintain a rhythmic balance. Whatever you do, make sure your pendant lighting doesn’t create a visual barrier in the room.
