Pendant lights are by and large one of the most popular lighting styles on the market today. Commonly placed in foyers, dining rooms and kitchens — especially above a kitchen island, bar or long dining table — pendant light fixtures double as decorative statement pieces and practical luminaires in one. Pendant lighting includes fixtures that are installed to the ceiling via a chain or pole and hang to provide great-looking task or accent lighting in any space.

Shapes and Styles of Pendant Lights

Choosing your preferred pendant light style comes down to size, application and personal preferences. For areas where you want a single hanging light — such as in the dining room or foyer — then you may prefer to choose a large pendant light, like a chandelier, or a foyer pendant light. These lights look exquisite when styled on their own as a focal point in the room, but can also be installed in multiples for an even more dramatic effect.

To complement your bar, long dining table or kitchen island, you may prefer the sleek and modern appeal of miniature pendant lights or multi-pendant fixtures that create a linear effect. You can even hang your bar or kitchen pendant lights at different heights for a dynamic look. These styles are a bit less formal than a traditional chandelier but still provide a big splash in applications where you want to draw the eyes upward.

Indoor and Outdoor Locations for Pendant Lights

Carefully consider the location of your pendant lighting, whether indoor, in a kitchen, bar or bathroom, or outdoors on a patio or foyer and exposed to the elements. If outdoor, be sure to choose a pendant light designed for outdoor use. If you live in an area prone to wind and extreme weather, your pendant light may swing and come in contact with windows or walls.

Light Bulbs

You need to choose the right light bulb for your pendant light, as one size does not fit all. Choosing the right bulb can make or break the look! Think about whether your hanging lights will be the central provider of light for the room, and its location in that room. How close is it to people? The closer it is to a dining room table, the less powerful bulb you may need. Do you want warm or cool light? For a bathroom you may want a natural light, but in a family room a warmer tone might be appropriate. You’ll want to maintain consistency with the type of light in each room.

Also for consideration is whether you want traditional incandescent bulbs, LED, or compact fluorescent. Each of these bulbs comes in different sizes and shapes.
