A pendant light is also known as a drop or suspender. It is a lone light fixture that hangs from the ceiling, suspended by a cord, chain, or metal rod. Used by themselves, pendant lights present a striking feature to a room. More often they are hung in multiples in a straight line over countertops, dining tables, or bathrooms.
Metal, glass and wooden pendant lights are all popular choices. They come in mini, multi, drum, up light and down light versions. Explore these different styles below.
Mood setting: Light is well-known for setting moods. Softness and color of the lights play an important role in creating a tune for a place. With glass pendant lighting, you not only get an option to install lights, but can also control the brightness and color of the light using the pendant shades of the desired colors. Thus, it is not a difficult task to set mood using glass pendant lighting. In fact, depending upon your requirements, you can set party mood, professional mood, and different other moods to tune the psychology of the people expected to be in the lit-up location.
Up Light Pendants - Up Light Pendants are fixtures that shine light upward. This type is great for basic lighting, as the light shines skyward and can enlarge a space with ease. One will find that ceramic, glass or wooden pendant lights in this style make a statement.
Blown glass pendants are more popular than ever these days. Looking as if an artisan made them, they have small imperfections such as bubbles in the surface, giving them a handmade look. Others have been blown to have a stained-lass effect, being a mix of several different colors or hues of the same color. As such, no two are exactly alike so pairing them adds even more visual interest to the space. In fact, it`s hard for visitors to your home to not be enraptured by the fixtures, given their slight imperfections and ever changing shapes as they hang above a living space.
Glass pendants are particularly well suited to a kitchen. Here you can use them over the kitchen island or get mini pendants that are set over the counter tops. These mini pendants work well in a home office too, or over the bed in the master.
