Pendant lights are attractive fixtures that come hanging from the ceiling on chains or on rods to provide targeted light right where you need it or to be used for accents and for ambient illumination. The bulb of the pendant light comes hidden under an attractive shade that is smaller and simpler than a chandelier, but more complex than just a bulb hanging from the ceiling.
Pendant lights provide bright light and if the design is chosen right, they are great design elements that complement the appearance of the entire room. Available shades vary in diameter from 4 inches to 30 and they also come in a seemingly infinite range of shapes and colors, allowing homeowners to pick the best fit for their homes. Pendant light shades come in many different materials as well – glass shades emanate an all-around glow, the shades covered in fabric are more suitable to be used as ambient lighting, while metal shades direct the light downward, so they work best in areas where you need targeted light.
Pendant lights are usually lightweight and relatively simple illumination devices that are affordable and easy to install as well – two other benefits that make them so popular and suitable for any environment. Most electricians Denver homeowners hire can install whatever type of lighting you decide on.
