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.
If there is a general rule of thumb about what constitutes mini pendant lights, it's that they are usually less than 12” in size. Three to four mini pendant lights cast about as much light as two regular pendants that have two bulbs each. The beauty of minis, however, is that you can use more of them over a greater area, creating innovative lighting solutions for a room that really make it stand out. If you want to conserve energy, there is a wide selection of low voltage mini pendant lights to choose from.
An interesting observation is that all your kitchen pendants can be installed in your existing ceiling fixture boxes. This implies that you should find it extremely simple to replace your existing ceiling mount fixtures by pendant fixtures without practically any hassle at all. The issue of mounting and installing the fixture on your ceiling is thus completely eliminated. Thus, using these pendants for your table tops and kitchen islands becomes much simpler. Please note that pendants hang physically and tend to occupy a larger diameter compared to the ceiling lights. So even if you have a ceiling light along the perimeter of your kitchen, installing the pendants using the same mount fixtures may not be easy. Hence if you desire such installation, getting professional help is suggested.
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.
