What is a pendant light?
A pendant light is a light source that hangs from the ceiling, from a chain, cord, or bar. Traditionally, these will be single light sources, but multi-light pendants are growing in popularity. A pendant light may consist of a bare bulb, or have an integrated shade or glass dome. There are a huge variety of shapes, colours and styles, so you can shop around and choose the ideal pendant light that will really complement your home.
Pendant Lights hang from a central fixture and can be used to illuminate a certain point, such as a dining table or a kitchen island. This is useful for an area where you're likely to be doing a task, such as preparing food or playing a board game. And, if you really want to add the wow factor to your kitchen island, you could try pairing your new pendant light with some integrated plinth lights.
How to choose a pendant light
The right purchase really depends on one factor - the space that you are adding your pendant light to. Following this, think about the location, height, and surroundings where you'd like to install your light. Consider if you need it to provide functional task lighting, illuminate a large area, or whether the space is already well-lit and you only need your pendant light to add an ambient glow.
Functionality is important, but so is style. Some people prefer something sleek and modern, while others like a more traditional style of pendant light. You might want something low-key, or a design that can really take centre-stage in the room. The scale is also critical in deciding which light to choose. Anything too small will get lost in the room, and anything too large will look crowded. Measure your space carefully before you make a decision so that you know what size of the pendant light would fit nicely and how long a cord it needs.
Your final choice is which material and colour you'd like. Pendant lights come in pretty much every material you care to name, from fabric to glass, metal, plastic, and even concrete. What you select will need to complement your choice of interior design as well, and add the perfect finishing touch to your decorating scheme. So think about the finish that will best enhance your home's style. From a dash of bold velvet to glamorous brass finishes or industrial-looking glass shades - there really is something for every home.
B22 light fittings
Most pendant lights you come across will require B22 light bulbs. B22 light fittings provide a wide-angle beam and a bright light to provide all-round illumination and a cosy atmosphere – ideal for your kitchen or living room.
At Simple Lighting, we supply a wide variety of B22, or Bayonet LED light bulbs to pair with your new pendant light. B22 LED bulbs are more energy-efficient than standard bulbs, and provide a crisp, clear light to match the ambience you want to create.
Available in warm white, cool white, and natural white, our LED bulbs are reliable, cost-effective and most importantly, will light your home or commercial premises perfectly.
