Pendant Light – The Most Popular Style Of Light Fixture

By Andrew Wilson

One of today’s most popular style of light fixture is the pendant light. These fixtures have a unique look that works well both indoors and outdoor on the patio.

These types of lights are suspended from above, making them much like chandeliers. However, unlike chandeliers they often only have one actual light instead of many — though some styles do have up to three. Their look is also much more contemporary than your standard chandelier.

They come in a variety of styles, the light fixtures themselves do not vary much, but the shades do. There are those that have very simple glass shades that are dome like, some of these styles are used in unison with other lights to form a grouping. There are styles that have very ornate shades that are tiffany lamp like. There are those that have stainless steel shades, and other metal shades. The most popular is the most simple of them all. A simple frosted glass shade over any of the pendant fixtures is favored by most home owners, it is sophisticated in its simple elegance.

Your standard one-lamp models will be relatively inexpensive and can be found for anywhere between ten and forty dollars. The large models with multiple lamps will often be anywhere from sixty dollars to two hundred dollars, depending on the materials the frame is made out of and the amount of lamps attached.

Installation of them may require the assistance of a professional. There is some wiring that will have to be done, in the junction box in the ceiling of the room that the pendant lighting will be installed. Some folks feel completely confident in installing them and some do not. An electrician can have the job done in about thirty minutes or less but of course there will be a charge. It may cost more to have the fixtures installed than it does to purchase them.

Pendant lights are affordable and easy to find, they provide direct light over work areas in the kitchen, and can be used as lighting to highlight objects, like a fireplace. They are a popular lighting choice for a reason.

Pendant light fixtures are some of today’s most popular business and residential fixtures. They give the convenience and style of chandeliers at a lower price.
