When you (or your budget) aren’t up to the task of rewiring to allow your pendant lights to hang from the ceiling, take a look around. If placing the fixtures in a nearby wall works, install hardware over the desired location and drape the light cords over the piping. This solution looks best with multiples of the same light.
One important factor to consider when looking at pendant lights is your ceiling height. Unless the pendant is to be hung over a countertop or table, the style is best installed in rooms with a ceiling height of at least nine feet. When hanging a pendant light over a table or countertop, allow 28 inches to 32 inches above the surface of the table, adjusting slightly for personal preference, lighting fixture size or ceiling height. When hanging pendant lighting over a sink in a master bedroom suite, ensure that the fixtures are hanging high enough to clear the head of anyone using the sink. In addition, lights used in the bathroom should be made of materials that are rated for damp rooms.
Why choosing a pendant lamp for a bedroom? For several reasons, and the first is saving the space: even the smallest bedroom can be lit up with a pendant lamp, and you don’t need any bedside tables to accommodate a lamp. Second, creating several layers of light is a good idea for any space, especially for a bedroom: they will make it look more spacious and you will be able to change the lighting according to your mood.
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.
