Pendant lighting refers to lights that are hung from the ceiling using a rod, cord or chain. Depending on the style of lighting, pendants can be used to illuminate large spaces, create ambience and mood or be used for a purpose such as task lighting. Extremely popular at the moment, pendant lighting is a great way to modernise the home and is a stylish addition to almost any room.
The kitchen is a great place for pendant lighting and hanging lights above an island bench in the kitchen has become a popular trend. It not only looks great but can also be used to create a visual divide between the cooking and eating areas.
In the bedroom pendant lighting can be used to create mood lighting and looks great hanging over bedside tables. This is perfect for saving space and helps to create a minimalist look, as there is no need for lamps.
Surprisingly, pendant lighting even looks good in the bathroom. It’s a unique feature that will give an instant style update to the room. When hung near the mirror it illuminates the space and is very functional.
If you love the look of pendant lighting and want to add it to your own home make sure you have a qualified electrician install it for you. As pendants must be hard-wired a licensed electrical contractor is a legal requirement. If you’re in the Brisbane area and would like lighting installed give us a call on 0407 522 678.
