Glass pendant lighting is one of the popular lighting styles in Australia, known for its stylish design and versatile functionality. A type of lighting fixture that features a suspended glass shade, which provides both ambient and task lighting.
Pendant lights often feature glass materials, which are commonly used in chandeliers for lasting brilliance. Glass is often fragile, making it less suitable for outdoor settings. However, indoors in areas such as the kitchen or living room, glass hanging lights can be a great choice. The sleek glass design allows the light to dance and play, creating a mesmerizing ambiance that's perfect for cozy evenings or entertaining guests. Glass shades come in a variety of colors such as clear, amber, smoke, green, blue, and more - allowing you to find the perfect match for your desired aest
Why Choose Glass Pendant Lights?
Glass pendant lights are suitable for most styled homes - from rustic and world inspired homes to modern-day homes incorporated with modern home furniture. Glass is an essential material to help make light bright due to the fact that it contains natural and organic features - this makes it a perfect choice for any room in your home or business.
Glass pendant lighting can cast off more lighting compared to a shaded material counterpart. The lighting could be further refined by the colour of the glass used in the fixture. Some glass lights consist of opaque or unambiguous colours that will monitor the direction of the light. However, others are obvious, allowing the lighting to sparkle through, adding to the attractiveness and also the effectiveness of the lighting.
Glass pendant lighting is exceptionally well suited to a kitchen area. You can use a series of them over the kitchen island or even get mini pendants that are set over-the-counter tops. The small glass pendants work well in a home office as well, or over the mattress in the master.
How to Clean Glass Pendant Lights
Dust and dirt can build up in the glass shades of your fixtures over time which are very visible and sometimes can be greasy. That being said, it can affect both the efficiency and the aesthetic appeal of your lighting. Therefore, caring for your glass pendant lights should be part of your regular cleaning routine, making sure they are free of dust will ensure your lights shine as bright as they did on the day you bought them. Here are some tips on how to keep your glass light fixtures looking their best;
First of all, please be very careful when handling glass - they can be incredibly fragile. Sometimes you will be required to take the glass shades off, so be careful when removing the shade and always have a designated spot on the ground to do the cleaning. For your own safety (and to avoid breaking glass), please do not try and clean glass while on a ladder.
Wipe the glass shades with a microfiber cloth dampened with water, or vinegar. If the glass still looks dirty, use rubbing alcohol with a paper towel. Remember to clean both the exterior and the interior of shades.
For especially greasy spots, use a mixture of baking soda and dish soap. Apply the mixture with a cloth and wipe off any residual. (You can also apply pure eucalyptus oil mixed with rubbing alcohol. Leave it on for a few minutes, then polish it off.) Then, use a microfiber cloth to wipe down any other parts of the fixture.
When everything is completely dry, replace the bulbs if necessary.
How to Choose the Best Glass Pendant Light for your Home: Size, Colours, Styles and Installation Options
With so many glass pendant options to choose from, you may have a hard time choosing just one. So how do you choose the best glass pendant for your space? You can start by going through the considerations listed below:
Purpose: In certain rooms, a light fixture serves a more functional purpose rather than fashionable. Glass pendants are more of an ambient lighting rather than task lighting. It can also be used as a statement or decorative piece to ignite a space.
Size: Know the 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 and even weight of a fixture you are interested in. Also consider the different tiers and candles of the crystal light fixture and its impact on the space.
Positioning: Consider the positioning of the glass pendant and its effects on style, general lighting of the room as well as symmetry of design.
Colours: Glass pendants are often dazzling and can be added to most interiors for extra charm and style. They come in various colours - amber, clear, smoke, green, blue and many more.
Brightness: The ideal lumen count for ambient lighting in a dining room–or any room–is determined by the space’s square footage. Per 10 square metres, a dining room needs about 250-400 total lumens. However, please be mindful that most pendant lights are supported by downlights and other functional lighting so pendant light brightness is sometimes considered secondary ambient lighting rather than focused functional lighting.
Installation Height: When installing glass pendant light, please consider ease of installation and its maintenance. For example, if you plan to install in high ceilings, be sure you have all the necessary equipment and items before hiring an electrician. An electrician may have to hire scaffolding so it is highly advised that you check that all items are in working order and ready for installation before hiring a scaffold. Also, consider how the fixture will be cleaned or maintained over time - would a ladder and duster reach or would you need to hire a specialist cleaner?

Popular Glass Pendant Lights: Shapes and Colours
Glass pendant lights come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours.
The most common shapes are:
Round Glass Pendant Lights: A classic shape that works with its material. A round shaped pendant light with a transparent glass material spreads ambient light throughout the room and is perfect for most applications needing general lighting. A good example, is our Replica Selene Classicon Pendants.
Multi Light Shapes: Some of the most popular statement pendant lights combine a metal material frame with glass shades. This brings the benefit of a beautiful design (metal frame shaping an appealing shape and design) with ambient general lighting through the transparent glass shades. A good example, is our Replica Jason Miller Modo 15 Bulb Pendant Chandelier.
Dome, Cone and Bell Shapes are generally not crafted from glass simply due to the fact that these design shapes lend in to task lighting rather than general lighting. As said before, the transparency of glass enables general lighting and therefore shapes like round and cylinder are utilised to maximise this effect. The other shapes like dome, bell and cone do not enable this effect with glass obviously because their design is more for task lighting. However, if it is made in these shapes it would be in a decorative way like ribbed glass or a novel colour like blue.
Lastly, glass is utilised with a contrasting colour like brass, copper, and black to maximise style.
