What are Pendant Lights? Pendant lights dangle from the ceiling offering a subtle more focused light in specific locations. Drum pendant lighting alludes to the drum shaped lampshade over it that helps to focus the light into the area below the light, offering a unique decorative style to the lamp.
Builders install pendant lights in new homes, and many contractors will suggest it for a remodeling solution. Pendant lighting is a great way to bring your current kitchen up to date and modern. Whether you use it over a table, throughout the kitchen, or over an island, it will improve the value and efficiency of your home. These lights are obtainable in small to large fixtures, depending on the area where it is to be installed.
If you like the look of lights that hang down from the ceiling, maybe because you‘ve grown tired of looking at recessed can lighting that was so in vogue in the 80s and 90s, then you have thousands of styles of choose from. Swag lamps and string lights are fun, but can also look at a bit dated if you‘re ready to upgrade a room into the 21st century. But chandeliers or pendant lights are options that can take your room‘s lighting from hidden in the ceiling to decorative pieces in their own right.
During its earliest days, the pendant featured a blown glass shell, which eventually evolved into a wide variety of styles. Today, the variety of styles used in pendant lighting is as varied as the styles used in other forms of lighting fixtures. Take a look online or at a fine lighting store or even in a home and garden periodical to see the extent to which this type of lighting has evolved. One of the mistakes some homeowners make is to try and use a Tiffany style lampshade on a pendant fixture. Don‘t get me wrong; Tiffany definitely has its place. Floor lamps and table lamps often add a dramatic flair when used with a Tiffany lampshade. The pendant, on the other hand, is designed to be slim and sleek and putting a Tiffany fixture on the end of one defeats the purpose, in my opinion, because you are really mismatching functional styles. I suggest that you stay with the more traditional style of pendant lighting such as something called the Colonial. This impressive fixture features a shade that gives one the appearance of a lantern with a candle inside.
Kitchen pendant lights are an item that can update your kitchen in no time. For the upscale home, you may consider a suspension fixture that will provide direct light. These types include the number of diffusers of your choice that come in numerous styles. For example, you may prefer hand-blown glass diffusers with tubular steel bodies. The ceiling assembly will include arms and side plugs with pressed and galvanized steel ceiling fittings. Or you may fancy a designer look with a little whimsy like a Frisbee shaped light or Pendant with a ball of metal discs hanging on a metal frame. Some designer pendants are made out of recycling and are made with the utmost quality.
