stylish pendant lights


Versatile and stylish, pendant lights are one of the most popular lighting choices in new homes and renovations. With such a large range of pendants available, the first step is to decide which lights will work with the space in your home.

Pendants over tables are hugely popular and a lovely, warm addition to the table setting when chosen correctly. Make sure they are hung at an appropriate height which allows people sitting at the table to easily talk to each other without the light becoming intrusive.

The look of your kitchen can be completely transformed with some striking pendant lights.  The advantage of clear glass lights is that they illuminate the room more than other types and by simply adding a filament globe, you can change the feel of the whole room.

One of the most popular decorating trends in pendant lighting right now is the industrial look. This style can be found in a variety of metals such as stainless, copper and brass.



One of my personal favourites that I recently included in my own new home is small hanging pendants either side of the bed, above the bedside tables. This reduces bedside clutter and creates an elegant and spacious room. These pendants also work well in bathrooms.

Another pendant lighting trend at the moment is clustering. Choose an odd number of pendants and cluster them together at different heights to create a great effect. Choose either a family of pendants in different shapes, or the same pendant in different colours or sizes. This look works well in a nook or corner of a kid’s room, or even down a stairwell to create a cascading effect.

Pendant lights don’t have to be just for inside the home. A pendant hanging in your entertaining area helps to create another room, and brings the inside out.

With such a wide range of options to choose from you’re sure to find a pendant lighting look to suit your home. Remember to employ a qualified electrician to install your new lighting.
