Pendant Lights - Buying guide
Light in All Directions
Initially, you should think about how and where you want to use your new light fixture, and what kind of light you want it to give off. Do you like soft light that provides comfort? In this case, large objects that emit light in all directions, creating a certain aura, and being at the center of attention, are viable options. You may also like focused zone lighting, which is preferable for the dining room table. Here, the selection is even greater. It ranges from simple lampshades that cover your lamp to technologically advanced and creative solutions of any size or cost. The third type of pendant light is space light, which is used as background lighting for your room. Many of the available lamps emit light upwards toward the ceiling, illuminating the room indirectly in a comfortable manner. Lights pointed downwards provide zone light, while lights pointed upwards generate a relaxed atmosphere.
The Ideal Place for a Pendant Light
Pendant lights are especially useful in rooms with high ceilings, or in places where you don’t have to walk underneath them; for example, near a wall or as a spotlight above a sideboard. A dangerously low-hanging lamp can be avoided during the planning stage. Chandeliers serve as a prime example for this. In lobbies with high ceilings, bedrooms, or large bathrooms an elegant pendant light can act as a focal point. They also can be used to structure hallways visually, and they look quite appealing when hung in patterns.
Classic Dining Table
One of the ideal places to hang a pendant light is, without a doubt, the dining room table. Be sure to use focused, no-glare light, mounted above the table’s center. You always want to see what you eat, as you eat with your eyes first. Depending on the length of the table, several lights, or one long light fixture might be necessary. Avoid an asymmetric array, like this, can lead to imbalance during dinner. In particular for dining table lamps, which are always right in front of one’s eyes, it is appealing to choose lights that feature well thought-out design and quality materials. In any case, a beautiful object above the table accentuates its meaning. The best choice is a dimmable light, as more brightness is required during the meal. After dinner, when enjoying the evening with a glass of wine in a relaxed atmosphere, dim light is more pleasurable.
Don’t Fear the Drill!
In order mount a pendant light you can’t shy away from drilling a hole in your ceiling. It is important that you determine the exact location of the lamp ahead of time. As you can imagine, pendant lights are much less flexible than floor lamps, which can easily be rearranged. Lights mounted to the ceiling tend to stay in the same spot for years. Do not be afraid to move them, however, if the setup of your living space has changed.
Where to hang your new pendant light?
If you are asking yourself whether you should hang your lamp in the ideal spot, or where the cable protrudes from the ceiling, you should give precedence to the best location. The cables are usually in the wrong place, but shorter distances can be covered using a wire hanging in parabolic, simple, yet elegant form. Recessing the cable into the ceiling certainly would be preferable. However, it is work intensive and should be done by a certified electrician to avoid safety hazards

Whether round, square or linear; whether slender or bold: pendant lights are focal points in any room and at the push of a button, they turn into hovering, glowing objects. An ideal location for a pendant light is above the dining room table. Be sure to use focused, no-glare light, mounted above the table’s center.
Large pendant lights rarely fail to leave an impression, as a glowing object floating at eye-level is very hard to miss. Of course, size and emission of light in all directions are important factors for this to hold true. Small light fixtures have the opposite effect. In the dark, they can fade into small, discreet, but bright light emitters. An inglorious exception is given by the ordinary light bulb, which aimlessly shines in all directions dangling from its socket attached to a cable. This typically happens when people forget to buy a simple lampshade after a move. Pendant lights exist in many variations ranging from reductionist and single slender lamps to “classic” round or cylindrical lights and all the way to large crystal chandeliers with dozens of light sources. High-quality models are designed for the desired effect to improve the mood in your space, especially when they are big or sculpture like.
