Upgrading your home’s light fixtures this year?
Do you want to add a statement piece to your dining room, entryway, or bathroom?
Hanging light fixtures are a great way to add an additional design element to your home and can really change the look and feel of your space.
If you’re having a hard time deciding on the type of fixture to transform your space, we can help. First, let’s talk about the different types:
According to Lights Online, “in lighting, the word “pendants” refers to any lighting fixture mounted on a chain, stem, cable, or wire that hangs down into a space.” Pendants typically feature only a single lightbulb into their fixtures. Additionally, pendants lean towards a more modern, simplistic look and can double as a decorative, mood-setting piece.
These hanging lamps are further broken down into these categories:
- Bowl pendants (has a bowl-shaped diffuser)
- Bell pendants (the glass is shaped like a bell)
- Drum pendants (often has a fabric diffuser)
- Mini pendants (smaller, more slender lights often used in multiples)
- Linear pendants (multiple light sources on a single canopy).
Chandeliers are decorative hanging lights suspended from the ceiling with multiple lights incorporated into a single fixture.
Some have multiple “arms”, and chandeliers often are used to set a more formal tone in an entryway or dining room. Chandeliers tend to be more intricate, and are usually designed to provide more ambient lighting.
Chandeliers can further be broken down into these categories:
- Mini chandeliers
- Drum chandeliers
- Tiered chandeliers
- Candle chandeliers
- Transitional chandeliers
