Pendant kitchen lighting fixtures are decorative fixtures. They typically suspend from the ceiling and offer general as well as task lighting. Most kitchen designers prefer placing them over counter areas or over islands where dining, conversation, baking as well as food preparation occurs. A good example of pendant lighting fixtures is the mini-pendant, which is usually used for small kitchen spaces and is approximately 12 inches or less. Another example is the island light or multi-light pendant, which works well bigger spaces that require more lighting.
You’ll want to consider your décor and the overall style of your home and go from there. Try to choose similar or complementary colors, or go big and bold with a pendant light that provides an interesting contrast to the room. Large, single pendant lights can make a statement, but don’t overlook smaller options as these can be just as bold when grouped together. If you do decide to go with a set of hanging lights, remember the “Rule of Three”, which will help you maintain a rhythmic balance. Whatever you do, make sure your pendant lighting doesn’t create a visual barrier in the room.
Floor or Table Lamps: If you’re looking for a more traditional light fixture, you can always opt for floor lamps or table lamps. Because of their many different shapes, sizes and designs, they are often a great way to add some flavor to your living room or bedroom. Lampshades are easy to switch, so if you’re looking for a fresh, new look for your room lights, you can change them out as often as you like.
Flush Lights: Mostly available in round shapes, the lights are fitted inside the rim, which can be of silver or gold or any other color. These lights can be conveniently used in kitchens as the area gets brightly lit up by these lights. Also available in square forms, these can be used in bedrooms as well. Semi-Flush Ceiling Lighting - Basically, a transition form between Single Glass Pendant Lights and Flush Ceiling Lights. They hand down from the ceiling slightly.
