Pendant lights are mostly used to hang over dinner table. With emergence of new trends and ideas, these lights have helped change the complete look of the dining area.
For dining tables attached to the kitchen
Many homes have their dining area attached to the kitchen, which gives people the opportunity to match the theme of their dining area with their kitchens. Usually, in these cases the dining tables are at a higher altitude and are longer in size with the chairs on one side and the kitchen on the other. So the sensible move would be to have three pendant lighting, long in length, with wider circumferences, and aligned in a line over the table. This setting would provide equal distribution of light to all corners of the table.
When dining rooms and living rooms are merged together
Some have their dining room and living room merged together. In this case, you may use pendant lighting of the same style over, both, the area where the sofa set is and over the dining table. Pendant lights can complement or contrast with the setting of the room, according to your preferences.
By size and shape
If the size of your dining table is small, with a setting for 6 chairs then you may use a set of three pendant lighting such as Mason jar, clear globe, geometrical or bottle lights with different lengths hanging in two places over the dinner table.
A dinner table which is square or circular in shape and small in size, done not need much lighting. So, a cluster of many pendant lights the Turkish lamps, plain bulbs and glass top lamps or just one eye-catching pendant light like a birdcage, woven wood, chandelier or a large geometrical light would be just perfect.
Other than the dinner table
Dinner tables are not the only place that pendant lights can be hung over. These petite beauties can also be used to hang over sofa sets, in the balconies and gardens, as well as in hallways. They give the house an elegant look and a calm feel, which cannot be achieved by tube lights. They are available in all the shapes in the world, in many colours and in many styles. Finding one to fit your dining room, living area or the hallway is going to be a piece of cake.
