The focused, targeted light you get from pendant fixtures is highly recommended to be used in working areas such as the home office, a reading corner, above the bathroom sink or the prep counter in the kitchen. Studies have shown how the lighting can impact the way people work, and it has been proven that adequate illumination can increase efficiency and productivity, reduce eyestrain, and help stall feelings of fatigue. You can choose the tone, warmth and wattage of your pendant bulbs to achieve the kind of lighting you'll be most comfortable to work with.
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. The description of the typical pendant light is a single fixture that hangs from the ceiling from a chain or other kind of supporting device such as a metal rod. They are far less elaborate than the chandelier and rather than having its lights exposed (like a chandelier), the pendant employs a shade of sorts at the end which, in fact, is described as the pendant.
Remove the plastic wire nuts from the wires, disconnect the wires, then remove the mounting bracket. Replace the bracket with the new bracket that came with the light. Once the bracket is installed, it's time to connect the wires. Follow the diagram that came with the light. In most cases, white goes to white, black to black and ground to ground, but every house, especially older ones, can be a bit different. The ground wire connects to the ground screw on the bracket. Before you slide the new mini pendant lights onto the mounting bracket, add new wire caps to the connections. That's really all there is to it. If you are adding new junction boxes where none existed before and haven't done that before, you may want to call in a trusted friend or a professional electrician to help you as you'll need to figure out the wiring in your home and how to run the wires to the location of the new fixture.
There is really an endless array of pendant lighting solutions on the market these days, one to suit nearly ever style and personal taste around. Many of these fixtures are extremely energy efficient too, certainly much more than their larger, more traditional counterparts. Pendant lighting is best when it is used as supplemental lighting. In other words, all spaces in your home should have a certain level of ambient illumination. This can be accomplished through recessed ceiling lights, down lighting techniques, which shed light on specific areas, or through the use of ceiling fixtures such as chandeliers.
