Pendant Lights are another fixture category that comes in a variety of designs and configurations. Functionally and aesthetically, they work well in numerous settings. Below are a few examples that will help narrow down the options:
Pendants as Foyer Lighting: The foyer or entry to your home are very common rooms to utilize the design of a larger pendant. Typically, foyer’s do not require directional lighting. With this as the case, it is often best to select a Bowl Pendant. This will provide gentle and comfortable illumination for the room.
Pendants above Breakfast Tables: Breakfast areas and kitchens are a common task setting; whether it is reading, doing homework or enjoying family time, task lighting is important in this particular application. Large pendants with downward illumination are typically recommended in this setting.
Small and radiant in design, mini pendants offer a sharp look that defines fashion and function. Providing a desirable downward glow, these petite fixtures will embrace your dining room or home bar with a splash of class. There are several options to take into consideration when choosing the right piece including glass, bulb type, chain, or downrod. Littmanbros.com offers the full variety of options making your shopping experience easy and enjoyable.
Mini Pendant Placement
In recent years, Mini Pendants have been utilized in areas beyond their original intent. Below are a few helpful suggestions for mini pendant applications:
Mini Pendants as Island Lighting: Mini Pendants are commonly used as decorative task lighting over kitchen islands and bars. Not only do they provide great lighting but their slim profile creates a feeling of openness that traditional island lighting can lack.
Mini Pendants as Bathroom Lighting: In recent years, designers and interior decorators have been using Mini Pendants as a sleek additional light source above the vanity area. The optimal location for the fixtures is on both sides of the bathroom vanity. Typically, older homes will not have junction boxes in these locations but it is a relatively inexpensive installation for an electrician.
