Small pendant lights, or mini pendant lights as some might call them, are stunning light fixtures for small or low-ceiling rooms. They’re also often used as clusters or in a decorative lighting series over kitchen islands and dining rooms.
With an overall size below ten inches, these small lights perfectly embody the phrase “small yet terrible.” With their compact size, they can showcase their eternal beauty and charm, complementing or contrasting different functional and decorative elements in interior spaces depending on the manner in which the room is styled. Some of these lights can also display their allure in both open and covered outdoor spaces due to the added protection and safety measures they received during the manufacturing process.

One of the most trendy solutions today is installing small pendant lights. Small pendants make a room look a bit conservative and restrained yet elegant and stylish. Small pendant lights are a perfect choice when you wish to hang lights over some objects, like countertop, table, kitchen island or bathroom sink, but at the same time prefer not to encumber this space.
Ideas on Where To Hang Small Pendant Lights
Bathroom Lighting: There are certain rules when it comes to bathroom lighting, and following these rules can turn your bathroom into a functional but slightly boring place. But as soon as you hang a couple of elegant small pendant lights over a bathroom sink, the overall interior design will be completely different. Still, you do need to stick to some rules, since the bathroom should anyway remain a functional and safe place. The small pendant lights should be IP rated, and their rating will depend on how far from the water sources they are located. Basically, IP44 is enough, but if you are going to hang pendant lights close to the shower, you might need the fixtures rated IP67. In either case, the more waterproof the lights, the more safe they are.
Bedroom Lighting: Installing small pendant lights on either side of the bed adds drama to a bedroom and creates a definite designer feel – but this is a bedside lighting idea that needs to be planned in early to a room revamp because, like wall lighting, it needs to be wired in professionally, rather than just plugged in like a lamp. Ensure there are separate switches either side of the bed to control each light individually, too. That said, it creates a lovely low pool of light and saves space on the bedside table. Choose your lampshade carefully – opaque ones will direct the light downwards which will look lovely, but won't be practical if you like to read in bed. Another option for bedside lighting is the dropped pendant or a grouping of pendants. Group pendants in odd numbers and a range of sizes for best effect, perfect for a stylish hotel look.
Living Room Lighting: Small pendant lights offer much greater flexibility in lighting your living room. You can group several of the same pendants together to mimic a large chandelier or hang a single pendant in a particular spot in the living room. You can also combine them with other lighting styles to create layers of light; small pendants coordinate well with recessed lights, wall sconces, floor and table lamps or even larger pendants.
Kitchen Lighting: Kitchen is not just just for cooking, it’s the heart of the home and is oftentimes the spot where people gather in the home. Small pendant light is where you can add some fun and can be used as task or accent lighting, like an industrial-style bulb pendant that makes an understated design. Instead of one main kitchen light, try three identical hanging small pendant fixtures over the centre of the kitchen.
Foyer Lighting: Whether your home is big or small, there's always an entryway where you keep your keys or outerwear. Small pendant lights can be successfully used in such places. There are a lot of styles and finishes of small pendants available at Zest Lighting, so it's not too difficult to choose the one that will perfectly match the overall theme of your home.
