What is a pendant light?

A pendant light, also sometimes described as a hanging lamp, is a ceiling light fitting that normally comes in multiples, meaning extra illumination. Usually suspended by either a chain or a cord, they are a stylish addition above breakfast bars and tables for example.

They are a great way to illuminate your home and make your lighting a focal point. Why not make the most of your light bulbs, with a chic fitting that fits the aesthetic of your home.

Allowing light to be brought further from the ceiling, they are ideal for areas requiring high visibility.

How to choose the perfect pendant lights

Design

When considering which style of pendant light you are after, there are a few factors to bear in mind.

Firstly, think about which room you're going to be putting your new light in, how much space is in there, and the current aesthetic of the room. These questions will help you to narrow down your options.

For example, if you have a large kitchen island that you would like to highlight, you might want to consider multiple lights. If your kitchen is minimalistic though, opting for a more industrial style pendant would best suit the look.

Finish

The finish of your lighting will depend on your interior style preferences. If you would like the finish to match your sockets, door handles, or cupboards, then choose accordingly.

With such a vast and complete collection of colours from antique brass to multicoloured, you can always find what you're looking for at Pendalier.

Brightness

Whether you want a bright light or not, it will depend on where you're putting your lights.

Pendant lighting often lends itself to being hung over islands and tables, where more contrast and higher visibility are advantages. When carrying out a certain activity like eating or cooking, brightness is a lot more important than elsewhere in the home.

If you aren't sure about whether you require a bright LED pendant, or whether a softer light is more appropriate, we are always here to help. Just contact us with any lighting queries you may have.

Mounting system

Another thing to consider when purchasing a new pendant lamp is whether you would like it mounted on your ceiling or your wall.

Although pendants are typically mounted on the ceiling, a wall mount may be more suited to the design of your home and your personal preferences.

Pendant Lighting FAQs

What is the difference between pendant lights and chandeliers?

Although pendants and chandeliers are both suspended from the ceiling and are extremely similar in this way, there is a difference between them.

On a chandelier, there are several bulbs attached to an individual hanging fixture, whereas pendants only have one bulb attached to each individual one.

For example, our pendant chandelier involves a lot of individual fixtures with only one bulb on each of these. Though it gives the same effect and illusion as a regular chandelier, it is not. Take a look for yourself and you'll see what we mean!

Which pendant lights are popular at the moment?

Just like everything else, types of pendant lights do go in and out of style. Despite this, chic pendant lights are something that is unlikely to ever go away.

Pendant lighting with an industrial look and matte finish has been popular recently. Soft gold is also a favourite option at the moment as it creates an elegant and modern look.

Can you get pendant lights with a remote control?

It is possible to get pendants with a convenient remote control. This allows you to remotely adjust the brightness of your light and even switch it on and off.

Which rooms are pendant lamps good for?

A pendant lamp is typically found in a kitchen or dining room. The design of a pendant allows light to be brought directly to a dining table or bar, no matter what the ceiling height is.

They are not exclusive to the kitchen or dining table though. You could place your new light above a chair in a cosy reading corner for example.

How high above the table should hanging lights sit?

A question that is not asked often enough, is how high above a table a hanging light should sit.

This is important, as a light that is too low may get in the way of people trying to sit around a table, while a light that is too high could cause a loss of clarity and visibility.

The typical rule for correct hanging is that the bottom of a light fixture should hang at least 30 inches (around 75cm) above a table, but no more than 36 inches (around 90cm). This allows for the perfect level of light without interfering with practicality.

This is why most of our lights are height adjustable allowing you to choose how you want to hang your fixture.
