I consider them ‘wall bling’ since they really work well to amplify the way any room looks. Here are my top 20 ideas for how you can use these splendid little beauties to spice up your home as well.
Talk about subtle and understated, and this clear glass pendant design is sure to be a winner. The clear glass pendant is so popular, you’ll be amazed at the wide variety on offer in most high street stores. Go for something a little elegant and small if you pick these.
Most of these are inspired by Indian baskets and you’ve probably seen them at pubs or art studios. Wide copper pendants are superb for your kitchen or home bar (if you have one). This Wakefield Electrical expert I know loved the durability of these lights.
Avoid going for those horrible colors you find in supermarkets and head to a sophisticated home store to get some excellent colorful pendant lights for the living room and study. I suggest the deep blue since it goes well with most wall colours.
Massive light pendants are very eye catching and if you have space I would suggest trying some oversized pendants for the doorway or the diy bedroom decor.
I really like chandeliers and if you’ve ever seen some well-designed ones I’m sure you’ll agree they are gorgeous. Sometimes these can be rather expensive, but it’s worth every penny in my opinion.
What do you do when you live in a small apartment in the middle of the city, or need some light near the desk in your study? Go for a nice, small lamp that hangs off with a pendant to throw off some light and also liven up that corner of the room.
Adjustable height pulleys
I must admit, I’d never seen one of these before. But when I first set eyes on pendant lights that are height adjustable with the help of a pulley wire, it struck me as the most creative ideas in home decor. It’s so fun and playful that you’ll find yourself adjusting the height just for fun till the novelty wears off.
Extra Long Hands
Extra long hands for pendant reading lights are a necessity as they allow you flexibility in where the light is in the room. You can move it over a sofa while reading or over a desk while working and it can nicely wrap up when you don’t need it anymore.
I know what you’re thinking – “Globe pendants? This isn’t the 70’s!” But there are so many new and improved designs that it’s hard not to mention these pendant lights for the dining area or the kitchen. Just give it a shot and you’ll see what I’m talking about.
Nothing brightens up the tiny corner in the room like a pendant lamp that illuminates it.
A large pendant light that hangs right down the middle of the doorway and greets everyone who enters is a really nice decor touch you can add to your house. If the doorway is really big you can even use more than one pendant light.
Ceiling fan lights
Depending on which part of the country you live in, you may or may not have ceiling fans. If you do, there’s a good chance they’ve been fitted in just the right part of the room and you can have a spotlight that hangs down the middle of the fan.
Scones for artwork
Pendants also come in scone shapes and many of these are made specifically for illuminating artwork. If you don’t have any art at home, this may be a great excuse to get some.
Low hanging light on top of the table
This goes well with a massive table. Hang a massive pendant light right on top of the dining area and brighten up all that delicious food.
Low hanging lights bedside
Two low hanging pendant lights next to bed could be a great substitute for those old-fashioned bedside lamps.
A special chandelier right on top of the bathtub screams luxury and if you’ve ever seen this, it’s wildly opulent and just what you need.
Bright lights for the office
A home office is a serious workspace and you need utilitarian lights that let you see clearly without strain.
Massive pendant staircase
A big pendant or chandelier that is in the middle of the staircase is a very Hollywood-inspired decor idea.
A pendant light that is in front of a wall with textures is simply gorgeous.
