Tips on Buying the Best Cylinder 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 Cylinder Shaped pendant for your space? You can start by going through the considerations listed below:
Purpose: Cylinder pendants provides plenty of focused task lighting for highly trafficked surfaces such as counters, kitchen islands and even trendy bedside pendants.
Size: Know the length of the benchtop 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. Cylinder pendant shapes typically range anywhere from 15cm to 25cm. For most applications, especially kitchen benches, anywhere from 15cm 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 the symmetry of design. The lower it is, the bigger the fitting will appear. If you think the size of the cylinder pendant light is too big, then just adjust it to be hung higher to reduce its size via sheer illusion.
Colours: Look for cylinder shaped pendant lights that will complement your existing colour palette and interiors. Our Cylinder 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 Cylinder Pendant Lights offer direct task-focused lighting so lumens can be misleading.
Lighting Function: As said before, Cylinder pendant Lights primarily offer direct, focused task lighting and accent lighting as a secondary function.
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 dome 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 the ceiling.
Style: Cylinder pendant lights come in many styles including modern, contemporary and traditional styles. You can easily find something that would suit your space. The cylinder shape is one of the most common and timeless designs that will never go out of fashion.
Materials: Cylinder pendant lights are available in a variety of materials and finishes. We have them made in concrete, glass, metal, brass, nickel, wood, timber, rattan and many other types of finishes. If you desire a particular material for your dome pendant that you find suitable for your space, then we will have it.
