Pendant Light

Lighting up a home is not just about dispelling the darkness. It is about brightening each space according to its need while adding to its aesthetics. And what can beat pendant lamps on that! Pendant lamps come in myriad shapes, designs and sizes that can serve almost all the rooms not just with light but with beauty too. Here is how you can choose pendant lights perfectly for your house.

The major and foremost factor that decides the type of light is definitely the purpose.   Lighting purpose can be divided into 3 major categories – Task lighting, Ambience lighting and Accent lighting. However, lights are increasingly being used as decorative items too.

Pendant lamps as task lights – Task lights are those which we need while performing a specific task. These together with ambient light reduce glare and shadows from the light, thereby providing ample light to carry out the task. The major areas we want them are kitchen island/counters, office work areas at home etc.

Interior designers across the globe believe that a standard kitchen island (5 to 6 feet wide) would require 3 pendant lights. (although 2 lamps will suffice if they are large enough).  Now, if your kitchen island serves as a mini dining table or eat out space apart from the usual cutting and chopping, dimmers can be optionally used. While cutting and preparing food might need a more bright light, we usually prefer a softer and warmer light while having food.

Pendant lamps as ambience lighting: We need ambience lighting when the light is to spread out across the room and bind the whole space. Lighting over the dining table or at the foyer can be termed ambient lighting.  Pendant lamps are now overtaking the traditional chandeliers in the dining area for the versatility they provide with their wide range of designs.

A colonial chandelier styled pendant lamp can be a perfect option for a round dining table for four.

Fabric pendant lamps are another great option to get a softer and diffused light across the table. 

A cluster of simple pendant lights is also one of the most sought after lighting options for dining area.

Positioning plays a crucial role as it can both diminish and accentuate the ambience. While placing above a dining table, it should be high enough for people to see each other across the table but not too high to completely go unnoticed. 

Pendant lamps as accent lighting: Accent lighting is nothing but a spotlight given to a particular accent piece in the room – It can be a painting, a sculpture or even an accent wall. 

The selection of pendant light for highlighting the accent depends upon the accent and the walls surrounding it. For a piece of art in neutral shades, fabric pendant shades works best while for a stone sculpture, a more focused light can bring out the true beauty.
