Chandeliers: Chandeliers have multiple lightbulbs combined in one unit to create a larger, more dramatic statement piece. Unlike pendants, they produce a stronger glow and therefore can often stand alone. Chandeliers are traditionally more elegant and more expensive than other indoor lighting fixtures, and therefore are used less frequently — you may see one in an entryway or a formal dining room.
Chandeliers are another great form of ceiling lighting. Chandeliers are used for more general lighting. They are great for spreading light over a large area. A Chandelier is used more to set a design theme and create a focal point in a room. Common areas for use are in a entry, living room or dining room. They also have become a favorite of designers to class up a larger bathroom. The have used mini chandeliers to give that boring bathroom some style and class. Pendants are another great way to create a soft light that set a design theme in a room as well. Pendants are a great way to light a kitchen, office of dining nook. Homeowners, who are searching for the perfect illumination device for their home, have ample choices.
The shades on a contemporary light will be made of light brown, beige or classic white. The shades that cover the bulb can be square or cylinder in shape. Pendant lighting would be best used over the top of counters or bars for a dramatic affect on the area or in dining areas.
