Pendants - Add a Drop of Light With Style
Pendant lighting adds light exactly where you want it; much like a decorative soft spotlight. Pendants come in a wide variety of styles, designs and colors suiting them to fit anywhere you can think of. They work very well as accent lighting, as a soft spotlight to highlight an area of the room or even lighting over a dining table. Think outside of the box when it comes to pendants, be creative, pendants are perfect for the spot that nothing else seems suited to. Adding a little light may be exactly what the room needed.
The most common type of pendant is the mini-pendant; you will often find this fixture over a breakfast bar or a kitchen island. Think the trendy yet comfortable coffeehouse lighting, small, pretty, direct but not overbearing lighting. These beauties are a great addition to a bedroom over a night table, in a home office over the desk or even over the sink in a small bathroom.
Designers expanded upon the idea of the pendant and created multi-light pendants; they provide the same unique design as their smaller components, with much more light. Multi-light pendants are a great option for kitchen lighting over a dining table or even an extended kitchen countertop. Designs are continually coming out that can be used in almost any location in the home or even office. Up light pendants and down light pendants area great compromise between a multi-light pendant and a mini-pendant they provide the simple look of a mini-pendant but with the lighting potential of a multi-light.
Low-voltage lighting kits are a stunning option if you're looking for something unique, beautiful, extraordinary and energy saving. Many track lighting kits are available that have pendant style lighting and have a look all their own.
