How to Choose the Best Pendant Lights: Size, Finishes, 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 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. For instance, the pendants you choose to hang over your kitchen island will provide functional, task-oriented illumination while the lighting at the front door is meant to captivate guests entering your home. Moroccan Pendant Lights serves more of a fashionable function while providing ambient lighting - it can affect the general mood and vibe of a room rather than provide clean functional lighting.
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. Moroccan pendants are generally of all shapes and sizes but mostly come in small pieces with perforated finishes.
Positioning: Consider the positioning of the pendant light and its effects on style, general lighting of the room as well as symmetry of design.
Colours: We have pendant lights available in a variety of colours including but not limited to black, white, grey, brass, gold, natural, and copper. However, Moroccan pendant lights are generally very vibrant and colourful - it is usually used to spice up a room and display a rich colourful lighting and ambient shadows in your space.
Brightness: Moroccan Pendant Lights provides ambient lighting - do not use it to brighten up your space with clean white lighting.
Installation Height: Consider how height affects style, safety and illumination. Also, 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?
