In terms of lighting, the pendant lamp has been a very popular choice for a wide range of projects, ambiances, and rooms! But that is some rules you should respect to achieve the desired result, and today we’re going to share with you 5 ways to use a pendant lamp!
OVER A TABLE
First of all, you should know that the recommended height to hang a pendant above a table is 71 to 81 cm. You can always hang it a little bit higher or lower, depending on your personal taste! You should also have in mind what kind of light you want to provide to the room, there is always a good idea to use a dimmable lamp in this cases, where you can choose brighter light for any tasks done at the table and softer light while dining.
Large pendants with a dimmer normally give a nice look to the room.
You can also opt for multiple pendants above a rectangular table.
IN THE HALLWAY
The lighting scheme of a project is more than giving light to place, is about design and complete the interior! You can add a lot of drama and beauty hanging a pendant on your entry or hallway.
For really high houses or hotels, you can use a more bold choice as a bigger pendant as this one!
ABOVE AN ISLAND
One of the first thoughts that come to our mind when talking about pendants is probably kitchens lights! They are perfect to offer tasking light at the same time that reinforces the kitchen design. The first rule is to hang the lamp high enough so that while standing you are not staring directly into the lights.
ON THE BED SIDE
Changing the traditional way of using table lamps to light up the bedrooms, we start to see some pendant lights doing the same job! This is an effective way to light up the area, particularly when space is limited for the use of nightstands.
This technique gives an incredibly dramatic touch to the room!
IN THE BATHROOM
To replace the traditional scones in the bathroom we suggest a pendant lamp instead. Hang in front or to the sides of a mirror, can be a good alternative for your bathroom design.
When choosing lamps for the bathroom make sure that they have the right IP rating, If you’re going to put them in a zone of high humidity e recommend IP65. Regarding the height, you should hang them where they provide the best lighting while avoiding being so low that one would bump their head.
