When it comes to hanging a pendant ceiling light, there are a few considerations that homeowners and interior designs need to make.
Space is one of the biggest factors, not just in terms of height but also in ensuring that the drop of the pendant lights does not impede the presentation or use of the space. Design scheme and furniture placement is another thing you need to take note of, ensuring that you illuminate the right areas of the room and that the colour and intensity of the light compliments rather than juxtapose your interior styling.
A 5 pendant ceiling light is one of the most common designs as it presents a decorative focal point without taking up too much space –this blog shares three of the best spots for a 5 pendant ceiling light.
1. Over a kitchen island or dining table
There’s a reason why pendant lights are so popular in kitchen redesigns and renovations. It’s because a pendant light is an effortless way to add style to any space in the home, combining the functional need for lighting with a large focal piece which instantly adds elegance to the surroundings. A 5 pendant ceiling light spreads the flow of light across five individual bulbs, each with its shade and each set to a slightly different height and position. This means that rather than one bulb serving the whole space, the light is diluted.
2. In a large entranceway
We love pendant lights being used to bring that perfect first impression to life – with a multi-drop pendant light a great way to instantly make guests look around the entire space and take in the details. Not only does a pendant light draw the eye upwards but it can also soften the aesthetic of your interior and make the entranceway of your home feel bigger and brighter. Consider monochromatic colours such as our blackened glass or black metal detailing with transparent glass bulbs to create a timeless finish.
3. In a bedroom
A pendant light is an easy way to add elegance to an interior space, particularly in a bedroom where you may want to keep clutter and decorative accessories to a minimum to enjoy a maximum amount of floor space. Hanging a pendant light from the ceiling towards the base of your bed can create atmospheric illumination throughout the room and create a cosy, warming mood.
