Why Consider Pendant Lights?

One of the great things about pendant lighting is that they have a variety of uses. For example, you can use pendants to create task lighting over a kitchen island or dining table.  Pendant lights make a great addition to a lounge room gaming area or a porch setting for entertaining. With an appropriately positioned pendant light, you can do all of your activities with perfect clarity.

You can also use pendants to add ambient light to a room. This type of light is perfect for creating a relaxing atmosphere. Think dining areas or bathrooms – pendant lighting is perfect for grooming. Could you imagine starting the night out, without a pendant brightening your bathroom? Then imagine sitting down at a restaurant to a pleasant dinner basked in the warm glow of a pendant or two. 

Pendants are also perfect for creating a focal point. Do you have a piece of art or furniture that you want to highlight to family and friends? Hang a pendant light above it to express its significance to all of your visitors. When considered in the right way, pendant lights can enhance the statement your space already makes, or make a statement themselves.

Which Pendant Light Is Right For Me?

If you’re looking for a pendant light for your home, there are a few things to consider. The first thing to think about is the size of the pendant. You want to make sure that it is not too large or too small for the space. Here at Barn Light, we manufacture many different types of shades sizes, so if you can’t find what you want – have a look at our Shop by Shade page. You don’t want your pendant light to draw too much attention away from the things it is there to illuminate. Think about whether you want a light with a wide shade, a narrow shade, or even no shade at all. 

You also need to decide what style of lighting you want. There are many different types of pendant lights available, from traditional to industrial. We stock a wide range of pendant lights. Chain hung, Schoolhouse, and even chandelier styles. Check out our range for a clearer picture of your options.

You also need to think about the style of your home. If you have a modern home, you may want to choose a contemporary pendant light. If you have a more traditional home, you may want to choose a more traditional style of pendant light. We have something to suit either style and everything in between.

How To Install Pendant Lights

Once you’ve chosen a pendant light, there are a few things you need to do to install it. The first thing is to find the right spot for it. You want to make sure that the pendant hangs at the correct height. Usually, pendants should hang between 75cm and 125cm dependant upon your ceiling height. You also need to make sure that there is enough clearance for the pendant to hang free. A common question we receive is the correct height to install above a kitchen island bench.

Once you’ve chosen a spot, it’s time to install the pendant light. You first and only step is to book in an Electrician. All lighting fixtures sold by Barn Light are designed for installation only by a qualified electrician!

We highly recommend that you wait for your new lighting delivery to ensure that everything has arrived as expected as some boxes can take a rough and tumble during transit, whereas some definitely cannot. Its always preferable to have your light ready for when the electrician arrives!
