CEILING FANS: INSTANT COMFORT
Maybe the ceiling fan isn’t a fixture that demands power, respect, or grace. But for a one-and-done piece that combines lighting and climate control, it’s a well-loved staple. Where would you not benefit from a magical product that provides instant comfort? With a refreshing breeze and a welcoming overhead glow, you’ll thrive in daily life beneath a ceiling fan. Learn everything you need to know about these light fixtures in our Ceiling Fan Guide.
CHANDELIERS: BALLROOM SOPHISTICATION
They’re classic lighting fixtures that make no apologies. An elegant chandelier has a magical effect that can make you feel like you’ve stepped into the grand ballroom of your favorite fairytale castle. Because they refract light, a chandelier’s branches of glistening crystals, baubles, or beadwork elevate a space wherever they’re hung. But they’re also super versatile.
Whether you prefer retro Sputnik arms or rustic wrought iron, you’re sure to find a chandelier that perfectly complements your home’s style. This type of lighting is a centerpiece, so hang it at least 48 inches from the wall. Too big or too small, and your new lighting fixture can seem like it doesn’t belong. Make sure you get it right the first time with our guide on How to Choose a Chandelier.
PENDANTS: SUSPENDED BRILLIANCE
A pendant is always an enviable lighting fixture, whether hung from a cord, chain or rod. These classy ceiling lights typically come with drum-, bowl-, or bell-shaped shades that direct light downward to highlight smaller areas. To illuminate a larger space or an entire room, cluster a few pendants together and amp things up.
You might hang a rectangular pendant behind your couch to create a border between your living and dining room. You could even hang an arrangement of cylindrical pendant lights above your dining table to create a great conversation piece. Or shake up the symmetry and design with something more memorable, like a suspension of pendants at different levels, imitating the dangling arms of a jellyfish.
Because pendants are hung out in the roof, they can be susceptible. You might need to reconsider spaces where children could fly by or hit into your fixtures. Your pendants will live a lot longer (and so will your kids) if you can hold these low)hanging fixtures from falling to the floor.
