A simple bulb hanging from exposed cord can look sleek and modern, but sometimes you want to spruce up the cord a bit. With a little dismantling, oversize wooden beads can be strung onto the cord at any length you wish. Masking even just a short section will give the hanging light a little flair and distract from the exposed cord.
Over a kitchen island: Clear, ribbed or colored glass as well as metals all can make a statement, especially in multiples. Consider the proportions of your island. Like placement over a dining table, the pieces should neither overpower nor underwhelm. A single four-inch pendant would seem too small and not put out enough light. Hanging a pair of pendants with a 4-foot drop might measure around 42 inches from the surface of a 39-inch tall counter that spans around 72 inches.
In the bedroom, pendant lights can be used to enhance a reading nook or sitting area; they can also be used to light a vanity in a master suite. Pendant lighting can be hung on either side of the bed and used as an alternative to a bedside table lamp or wall sconce—or even over the foot of the bed, as long as the light fixture is hung high enough that you can avoid hitting your head when you get in and out of the bed.
Pendant lights play different functional roles. A pair of hanging pendant lights over a kitchen counter is right on task, while a pendant illuminating a foyer is more about spreading the light in an ambient way. Check out resources like design magazines and websites for ideas about how to use pendants in different rooms.
