First of all, do consult a professional. This is especially important in older buildings, where wiring may have unforeseen issues. Also, the weight of the lamp (and mounting plates) must be carefully considered, so there’s adequate hardware to secure to the ceiling (like hanging a painting).
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.
Especially pendant lights can be an eye-catcher. Depending on their shape, color and material, you will give your room a completely different look. Umage’s Eos and Silvia add a touch of romance, while pendant lights by Tom Dixon are characterized by elegant metal and industrial charm. Whichever living room lighting you choose: the most important thing is to use one that you suits your aesthetics.
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.
