Shop Pendant Lighting of All Styles at Capitol Lighting's 1800lighting.com
Pendant lights are 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 installed on 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 — 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 you can also install them in multiples for an even more dramatic effect.
To complement your bar, long dining table or kitchen island, you may prefer the sleek, 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 of friends, family and guests upward.
We have a wide variety of pendant lights for sale. Choose from famous brands like Capital Lighting, Visual Comfort, Schoolhouse Lighting and dozens more.
Indoor and Outdoor Locations for Pendant Lights
Carefully consider the location of your pendant lighting, whether indoors in a kitchen, bar or bathroom or outdoors on a patio or foyer. Exposure to the elements requires rugged construction that can stand up to all kinds of weather. If you're going to be using pendant lights outside, be sure to choose models 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, so you will want to make sure your light is tough enough to stand up to such impacts.
If you're not sure if pendants are right for you, a glittering chandelier could offer a glamorous alternative. Check out our collection of nearly 10,000 chandeliers if you want to investigate this option in depth.
You need to choose the right light bulb for your pendant light, because one size does not fit all. Choosing the right bulb can make or break the look, in fact. Think about whether your hanging lights will be the central provider of light for the room. You also need to consider 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 will likely need.
Do you want warm or cool light? Rated on the Kelvin scale, cooler lights give off an icier, brighter and bluer light, while warmer lights give off a softer, yellowish illumination. 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, you'll want to consider whether you want traditional incandescent, LED or compact fluorescent bulbs. Each of these bulbs comes in different sizes and shapes. They all have their pros and cons and their fans and opponents. LED lights, for instance, are energy misers that boast unusually long lifespans. They can help save you money on utility bills and replacements while also doing their bit for the environment by cutting down on energy use and throwing away materials in landfills. Although they have improved dramatically over time, LED lights' illumination doesn't seem as "natural" as incandescent lights, some people insist. Whichever style you lean to, you can shop an amazing selection of light bulbs at 1800lighting.com.
