When it comes to picking out lighting fixtures for your home, Lights2Go would recommend that you consider the pendant light, which hangs on a cord, chain or metal rod from the ceiling. Pendant lights can be used in two ways - in multiples hung in a series or as a single light fixture. The pendant has become a popular choice among homeowners since it's not as bulky and expensive as chandeliers and it makes for great task lighting in workspaces like the kitchen. In addition pendant lights make for attractive focal points in any space while doubling as a lighting source. The style and shape of the pendant light you choose depends on your home and the room where the fixture will be used. A single big pendant light is great for an entryway where one source of lighting is often enough. It can also serve as a focal point in the space. On the other hand, small pendants, such as mini globes, are great alternatives to installing track lighting. They provide bright but less intense lighting all around, so they work well as task lighting in the kitchen -- hang them in multiples (for sufficient lighting) and above eye level (to prevent possible glare). Pendant lights also work well over dining room tables and the type of pendant light you choose could depend on your table shape and size. Large single pendants work well over round tables and multiple line pendants work well over rectangular tables. Depending on the shape or the type of shade used on a pendant, light is either directed up or down. Pendants that are inverted streams light up to the ceiling, providing ambient or mood lighting in a space. Whereas pendants with open bottoms often focus light downward, making them perfect as task lighting above a workspace like the kitchen island. How the pendant light will be used will also determine how high it should be hung. For example, if you're using a pendant in a dining area, it's generally best to suspend the light at least 30" above the table. Whatever your needs or style maybe Lights2Go has an extensive range of pendant lights ranging from contemporary single pendants to offer a simple yet stylish look to large crystal light pendants to make stunning statements in your home. Lights2Go pendants are often offered as part of a family of lights with complimenting wall lights, table lamps and ceiling lights often available.
