A repurposed frame affords the perfect base to hang several (or many) simple pendant lights. Depending on the frame and lights chosen, the resulting faux-chandelier’s style could range from industrial to modern to shabby chic.
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.
Basic brightness is provided by spotlights, ceiling lights and pendant lighting. Spotlights and flat ceiling lights can be placed in the middle of the room or all over the ceiling. Pendant lighting has its place above the coffee table: this way they are presented best and the table prevents you or your guests from bumping your / their head against the light. When you’re using spotlights you should always use a dimmer. Only then the light can be adjusted accordingly to your your mood.
Pendant lights are available in a wide range of materials, including brushed steel, nickel, bronze, blown glass or stained glass. The lights can be suspended from a simple cord or a chain. Pendant light styles are typically simple, lending themselves to a modern or eclectic decorating theme. However, some glass styles, particularly stained glass or Tiffany glass, can add a stunning accent to a more traditional decor.
