Pendant lighting is a relative newcomer to the market of home lighting fixtures. Although it has been around since the 1940's, this type of lighting is just coming into its own as homes are built with higher ceilings. Although there is no evidence of this, the development of the pendant light was probably a reaction to finding a form of lighting that was less elaborate than the chandelier but that served basically the same function and purpose.
Pendants are an eye catcher in it's not something you want to cut corners on when considering a purchase. There are tons of styles and configurations available today and with a little persistence, you can find just the right fixture for both your décor and your budget. An inexpensive pendant gives you what you pay for and if it wears out, replacing it can be a chore that you won't relish.
Mini pendants are usually less than 10 inches in width, with downward facing light. Very often these are designed with a modern look and style, using brightly colored glass shades. Mini pendants are perfect for use above kitchen counters, bars, dining tables, and other small seated areas. Often, multiple single mini pendants are hung in a series of 2-5 or more. This is a very common sight in modern restaurants and bars.
Small pendants, like mini globes, are great alternatives to installing track lighting. Their lighting is bright but less intense all around, so it is perfect for task lighting in a kitchen or other work area. Hanging small pendants in multiples allows for sufficient lighting. Make sure to hang them above eye level to prevent glare. Light will either be directed up or down, depending on the shape or type of shade used. Pendants that are inverted will stream light to the ceiling.
