Pendant lighting is not a new interior trend, and it looks to be one that’s going to continue for some time too, but how to style this statement design fixture?
Lighting in the home can sometimes be considered an afterthought when it comes to picking paint, furniture and staying within budget. But it’s definitely something to bring to the forefront when designing a space because it has a great effect of making a room come alive.
These are some simple design tips to consider when you’re illuminating your home with pendant lights.
Pendant lighting can be an excellent choice of lighting in the home, because they’re not only functional, but stylish too.
Use pendant lighting as task lighting in your home, allowing you to get through your day-to-day tasks with sufficient lighting. And by choosing a statement pendant shade, you’ve combined it with a design aspect for the space.

Picking the right pendant design
When it comes to choosing the right design, there are certain things you’ll want to consider beforehand. You want to take into account the size of the room they’re going to be used in, how many lights will be needed to provide functional task lighting, and finally you’ll want to take into consideration any other features that are already in the room.
Don’t pick a pendant light that’s too big or too small for the space. Will the light you’ve picked provide enough light for the whole room, if that is its function?
Are there huge windows in the room? A statement fireplace? Look at the other features of the room, and make sure the pendant light won’t overshadow them or won’t be swallowed up by them.
Will you have more than one?
Grouping pendant lights together is a bold design choice, and one that will certainly make an impact. To make sure it looks its best, keep them grouped in odd numbers, so three, five or seven works best, depending on the size of the space and the size of the pendants.
Pendant lights do have their typical areas that they can be found, such as over a kitchen island or a dining table. And whilst they look great in these areas, they also can make an impact in other areas of the home. Use them in the bathroom as a sconce style light, or create a special reading nook in the lounge with a small pendant light suspended over a big comfortable chair.
When it comes to hanging your pendant lights, there are two things that should be considered, will they get in the way of people using the area? Or is there a chance that people could knock their heads on them? When you consider these two options and factor them in, any length that doesn’t affect these will be perfect for your home.
