If you’re looking for an attractive and practical way to light up your home, consider pendant lighting. Pendant lights suspend from the ceiling by a cord, chain or rod. They're excellent for creating both ambient and task lighting. Want to add a fashionable accent to a dining room? A large pendant light above the dining table creates a chic focal point. Ready to update your kitchen? Consider grouping multiple pendant lights for a bold look that provides plenty of illumination.
Pendant lights are available in both upward and downward-facing styles. An upward-facing pendant light will bounce light off of the ceiling to create general ambient light. A downward-facing style will provide focused task lighting with a spotlight effect. You can opt for plug-in or hardwired hanging lights to suit your space. Plug-in pendants are quick and easy to install, but have a visible extension cord. A hardwired pendant light has a cleaner look without a dangling cord, but is more difficult to install. With so many sizes, shapes and colours to choose from, pendant lighting makes a versatile addition to any interior.
