About pendant lights

Pendant lights are hanging lights suspended from the ceiling using a chord, a metal rod, or a classy chain for indoor settings. In most cases, hanging lamps are used in multiples. You will find two, three, or four pendant lights suspended in a straight line or a certain pattern in living rooms, kitchen countertops, and sometimes in the bathroom. Modern pendant lighting is also a diverse industry. Wholesalers have plastic and glass pendant lights which come in a variety of sizes and styles from retro to minimalistic. Buy them affordably from Alibaba.com.

What are the size rules used when setting up a pendant light?

Since pendant lights produce a limited amount of light compared to normal LEDs or halogen bulbs, there are rules homeowners should observe to avoid accidents and ensure the bulb is both functional and attractive. Hang pendant lights at least 28 inches above a kitchen island and 72 inches off the floor. This ensures you have an unobstructed view over the house while sitting or standing. Secondly, interior designers prefer an odd number of pendants to even numbers in order to have more lights with little investment in hanging light fixtures.

Are pendant lights out of style?

No, even though traditional inefficient pendant lights are out of the market, hanging lamps are timeless and still trending in many homes. For example, industrial pendant lights made from stainless steel match well with the sink and most metallic cookware in the kitchen. Furthermore, they are stunning in farmhouses and with customization, you can select different colors for city homes. Go for black pendant lights whose universal color pairs well with existing decor.

Besides revolutionary designs, various shapes of the pendant light are keeping hanging lamps on the market. From simple globes to rectangular lights, there are tons of choices online. For unlucky customers whose preferred shapes are not available, a rattan pendant light is magical.
