Exposed Lamps Faqs
Consider the dimensions of your space to determine the appropriate pendant size. For islands and kitchen counters, be mindful of the space the pendant takes up so you do not obstruct any views, TV & Entertainment, or guests across from you. Purchase pendant lights that are both functional and elegant. Keeping proportion to other features in a room or the lighting application applies to pendant light fixtures like tables, wall and ceiling dimensions for hallways, Stairwell dimensions, and junction box placement.
By hiring a licensed electrician, you will ensure your lights are hung to your preference, ranging from 28-36" from the countertop. Other pendant locations follow the proportional rules as any other light fixture that would go in the space at hand. The height at which the pendant lights are installed can significantly impact the lighting effect and functionality. Consider the ceiling height and the desired placement of the pendants to achieve optimal lighting and visual impact. Once again, be mindful of how much space it may take away from other vantage points in the room.
Evaluate the desired lighting intensity and ambiance you wish to create. Different bulbs, such as incandescent, LED, or halogen, offer varying light outputs and color temperatures. Select bulbs that align with your desired lighting effect.
Pendant lights come in a wide array of materials and finishes, including metal, glass, fabric, or even natural elements like wood or rattan. Consider the overall design scheme of your store and choose pendant lights that complement the existing decor elements.
