How to Choose the Best Cone Pendant Lights: Size, Colours, Styles and Installation Options
With so many versatile pendant lighting options, you may have a hard time choosing just one. So how do you choose the best Cone Shaped pendant for your space? You can start by going through the considerations listed below:
Purpose: Cone Pendants are generally used over a bench in a series or row to provide stylish downwards illuminations. They can also be used as bedside lighting as well as in high end lounge room corners.
Size: Know the length of the bench top or square footage of the room as well as the ceiling height (including vaulted and sloped ceilings) to help you make the best choice. Be mindful of all sizing dimensions including width, depth, height of a light fitting you are interested in. Cone shaped pendants diameter range anywhere from 15cm to 60cm. Anything more than 60cm is uncommon and would usually be a custom design, or designer may just transform it to a dome or bell shape to be more practical. For most applications especially over a kitchen bench, anywhere from 20 and 30cm would suffice. You can play around with the quantity and heights of the fittings to make the sizes perfectly suit your space.
Positioning: Consider the positioning of the pendant light and its effects on style, general lighting of the room as well as symmetry of design. The lower it is, the bigger the fitting will appear. If you think the size of the bell pendant light is too big, then just adjust it to be hung higher to reduce its size via sheer illusion. Placing it higher will also increase the broadness of the lighting. If you prefer directed and focused lighting, then lower its height.
Colours: Look for cone shaped pendant lights that will complement your existing colour palette and interiors. Our cone pendants come in a variety of colours including but not limited to black, white, grey, brass, gold, natural, and copper.
Brightness: The ideal lumen count for ambient lighting in your typical room, be it dining, kitchen or bedroom – is determined by the space’s square footage. Per 10 square metres, a room needs about 250-400 total lumens. However, please be mindful that Cone Pendant Lights offer direct task focused lighting so lumens can be misleading or not even required.
Lighting Function: As said before, Cone Pendant Lights primarily offer direct, focused light and ambient light as a secondary effect.
Installation Height: Consider how height affects style, safety and illumination. Also, consider ease of installation and its maintenance. Adjusting the height of the pendants can really affect the style and lighting of a room. For example, the higher the fitting is off the bench, the more spread out the lighting is (and conversely less directed and focused lighting). Also, adjusting the height so that the fitting is higher off the table can make the pendant light look smaller. and less impeding (the opposite effect happens when you lower its height) Finally, installing and maintaining cone pendants are generally much easier than installing other type of lighting like chandeliers over a staircase or stairwell. Most would be hung 1 metre from ceiling.
Style: Cone Pendant Lights come in a many styles including modern, contemporary and traditional styles. You can easily find something that would suit your space. The cone shape is one the most iconic and timeless lighting designs available.
Materials: Cone Pendant Lights are available in a variety of materials and finishes. We have them made in concrete, metal, brass, nickel, wood, timber, cardboard, rattan and many other types of finishes. If you desire a particular material for your bell pendant that you find suitable for your space, then we will have it.
