How can you make the place adequately lighted? One way you can do is to install pendant lights.
Also called as droppers, suspenders or swag lights, a pendant light is a single lighting feature that hangs or is suspended from the ceiling with either a chain or rod. It is so called because earlier models had shapes that resembled the looks of pendant necklaces and that the pendant hangs on a chain.
Lighting pendants are not the only thing that hangs from the ceilings. There is also the chandelier too, but how or where do the two things differ? Chandeliers are elegant and have intricate styling pendant lightings are very simple. Chandeliers use several lighting fixtures and on the other hand, pendant lights use only a single fixture.
A pendant light functions the same way as your desk light or bed side lamp does. If placed in the kitchen, it provides basic, atmosphere and task lighting functions. For basic lighting, you can install it in the middle of the kitchen to provide adequate comfort and level of light across the room. For atmosphere lighting, you can use it in some corners of the room like the corner where the refrigerator is placed (in case you want to sneak in for a midnight snack) or to highlight certain features of the kitchen.
Pendant lights are commonly used for task or focused lighting in the kitchen to accompany certain food preparation or kitchen tasks. You can install it over the stove area, sink, island, benchtop or even the dining table where they would really serve their purposes to guide you in your cooking or food preparation. It provides the light needed for a specific task.
The use of pendant lights is fast becoming popular because they are so easy to install and despite its absence of intricate styles, they serve their functions. Their functionality compensate for their simple look. Moreover, they do not take up much space in the kitchen.
Pendant lights work well in kitchens that has high ceiling. Because the fixture of a pendant light is suspended by a chain, cord or rod, it brings the light down to where you are. With the light directed down, it can illuminate a large area.

If you install them too high, the height will reduce their focus and if you install them too low, it can dazzle your vision and block your movements in the room.
