Hanging Pendant Lights – How to Choose The Best For Your Space

Hanging pendant lights – Your kitchen is a space where your family and friends spend more time than you likely realize. Whether you are cooking, cleaning or hosting a party, it is a commonly used room whose lighting should be taken into account. Like any other room in the house, but especially a busy one such as a kitchen, lighting is important.

Proper lighting in your kitchen, especially if it is a modern kitchen, is crucial to its functionality and mood. Contemporary spaces especially rely on light to create bright and well-lit areas to give them an open feel. Hanging pendant lights are one way to make your space feel more open while also decorating it while providing illumination. Hanging kitchen lights shine a broader beam of light down on the room to make it easier to see.

How To Choose Hanging Pendant Lights


  • Since modern spaces need good lighting to complete their appearance, choosing one with a unique style is important. There are a good number of shapes and styles available, making it easy to choose one that reflects your taste. Everything from contemporary geometric shapes to traditional hooded cone shapes and pillar lights is available for you to work with. Furthermore, you can choose just one light for the centre of the room, or choose more than one for lining breakfast bars and other such areas. This will help you create a more detailed and diverse appearance.
  • To make sure that your pendant light fitting will outlast the years, it is important to take into account the material it is made with. Durable materials like metal are common. Among these metals, aluminium is perhaps the most commonly used of all. It is a durable and relatively lightweight metal that can serve your needs for years to come.
  • Playing into the appearance of the light is, of course, its finish. The finish is important to take into account as it will influence the mood of the space; bright colors may create a more artistic and whimsical space, while neutral hues may make it look more sophisticated. Hanging pendant lights come in a variety of colours. You can choose from red, green, blue, yellow and other vibrant colours, or more neutral hues like grey, white and black. Using colours, you can play with contrast or simply add a light that is neutral enough to fit in with any existing decor style.
  • Since the main function of hanging pendant lights is to provide light, the illumination is also important. While there are different types of lights available, choosing bulbs with a 3000k warm white colour temperature is recommended. It is not only easy on the eyes but is also common enough that it is sure to fit in with any existing lights in the space.
