Ceiling Light / April 27, 2018 / Kerri Patrick
The first thing to consider when selecting a ceiling fixture, however, is the visual heaviness or weight of your selected light fixture. For example, a crystal chandelier is visually heavy and therefore will lend itself to a smaller diameter or width, while a ceiling light with thin wrought iron branches can more easily fill a larger diameter with it's lighter feel. The size of a fixture that will be hung over a table depends on the table and not the room size. This is the case when it comes to the hanging height over a table as well. Lights hung over tables should be centered in the middle of the table (unless two fixtures are hung over an extremely long table) and the bottom of the fixture should hang at least 30\" above the table.
Pendant ceiling lights are a classic designer lighting product. They add illumination precisely where you like, working like delicate spotlights. Because of their effect, they are best used for task or accent lighting. Not only will they accent specific areas of your home, but many pendants come in fashionable styles and colors to work as decorative accents themselves. Rooms in your home will receive a complete makeover with pendant ceiling lights. Mini pendants are very popular and continue to grow in their popularity. They work great as small spotlights above a small table or kitchen island. Mini pendants are extremely useful: Try placing a row of mini pendants along a long kitchen counter top or bar. The delicate and direct lighting effect will develop a theme reminiscent of trendy cafes. Be inspired by mini-pendant lights.
