How to Choose the Best Rattan Pendant Light for your Home: Size, Colours, Styles and Installation Options
With so many rattan pendant options to choose from, you may have a hard time choosing just one. So how do you choose the best rattan 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. Rattan pendants provide both style and functionality. Due to it's material and the way it is put together, it can provide both general and task lighting. For example, a tightly knit rattan pendant in a bell shape will provide only task downward lighting whereas as a loosely knit rattan pendant can provide general lighting with a shadow play.
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.
Positioning: Consider the positioning of the rattan pendant 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.
Colours: Rattan pendants are often in natural colour but black and white wash colours are also available. The material suits the colour.
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 rattan 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.
Maintaining and Cleaning Rattan Pendant Lights: One of the best features of rattan pendants that not many know about is the ease of cleaning and maintaining them. In fact, most people prefer its natural look and don't really clean or maintain them as it can easily absorb dirt and other earthly materials. That's also another reason why it's so popular to use in outdoor settings. And, for the obvious - they never rust or break! So, no more replacing pendant lights - these fittings will adorn your space for years.
Style: Rattan Pendant Lights are a great way to add some rustic charm and a natural look. The wicker lamp shade can be incorporated into a number of styles to suit traditional and contemporary decors.
Rooms: Rattan wicker pendants can be used in any room - browse our collection and add some charm to a bedroom, kitchen island, over a dining table or entry.
Shapes and Sizes: Wicker pendants come in all shapes including Bell, Cone, Drum and Round shapes. They also vary in sizes with a diameter of anywhere from 20cm to 100cm. Our biggest pendant lights are in this category.

Rattan shades are generally made by hand and woven together using natural, recycled or recyclable materials. Due to this fact, producing rattan shades is time intensive and quite complicated. A common place of manufacturing is in tropical regions like Bali, Vietnam and Philippines where the material is abundant and available for use. They are also very popular in these regions and are extensively placed in coastal, rustic or bungalow styled rooms, bars, restaurants and homes - It suits the environment, style and culture of the region and is relatively affordable there as well.
