Choosing Pendant Lighting For Your Space
Overhead light fixtures are often already set into your home’s layout. Finding spaces to install or upgrade a pendant lamp or hanging light to enhance your lighting design is one of the most effective ways to refresh a room’s tone. This design element takes up no footprint but touches every corner of the room. From large, open-concept living areas to intimate nooks and functional spaces, the fit and function of pendants and hanging lamps should specifically suit their environment. Before you shop, we recommend first considering the dimensions and layout of the room and then imagining its lighting needs throughout the day.
Living rooms and transitional spaces are some of the most dynamic in your home. They are where we gather to relax, unwind, and entertain. This multi-use space presents the unique challenge and opportunity of finding a light that can adapt to the size and versatility of the room. If your living room is an open-plan space with generous dimensions, consider pendant lights with multiple bulbs for a statement-making feature with a brighter footprint. The Basalt Collection by Tala collection also comes in various designs—consider placing a series of them throughout your home for a chic lighting motif.
In more intimate spaces, like a dining room, you might consider the more direct illumination of a single pendant to augment a focal point such as your dining table. Dimmable hanging lamps styled in pairs can make ideal island lights for your kitchen where you want a brilliant radiance for meal prep but a cozier glow for those social moments spent on bar stools around the counter. Pendant lights can be used as task, ambient, or accent lighting—it all depends on how you style it.
Shopping Pendant Lights by Design
One of the best parts of shopping for pendant lights online at Lulu and Georgia is how easily you can browse and filter your options by feature. Perhaps you need a wet-rated pendant lamp to revitalize a covered porch or entryway. Or maybe you want to purchase a design with an adjustable height or one suited to sloped ceilings so you can create a lighting design tailored to your space. No matter what you are looking for, this dynamic array of features is available in various styles. From basket pendant light designs to sleek black pendant lights, our wide selection lets you find the perfect piece in a look suited to your aesthetic so that you can put function first without compromising style.
Finding a Pendant Light Finish for Floor-to-Ceiling Style
As you get a feel for the lighting needs of a room, it is time to start branching out into style options. Good lighting is essential to reflecting and defining your aesthetic, and pendant light fixtures offer an incredible opportunity to bring some signature appeal into your overhead space. From the soft luster of gold pendant lights to the earthy allure of organic materials, there is no limit to how you use the different finishes and designs of hanging lights to layer depth and character into your look.
If you’re looking for coastal kitchen island lights or just an organic touch for a laid-back living space, consider the statement appeal of a basket pendant light. Woven shades can refresh your look with their earthy feel and intricate artisanry. These pieces cast a filtered light while layering textural contrast into your space or echoing other rattan and cane elements throughout your home. Our exclusive Sayan Pendant Light pairs an airy, modern profile with a woven jute construction available in two finishes to offer a transitional dimension.
Antiqued brass, polished nickel, and gold pendant lights can elevate a transitional aesthetic with their timeless tone. Whether inspiring a modern feel with a geometric design or evoking a traditional note with a thin profile, a pendant with a polished metal finish can offer lasting style with versatile appeal. Many designs like our Juliette Pendant Light come in various finishes tailored to taste.
Clear glass shades can strike an eye-catching appeal that doesn’t overwhelm your overhead space with visual weight. These glass pendant lights’ shapely silhouettes and flowing forms can add a modern touch to a refined space. Or you can embrace an understated effect by mixing and matching black pendant lights throughout your home. This can be an excellent option for open floor plans where you want some nuance in design while creating a sense of unity.
Curated pendant lighting can offer endless ways to enhance the look and feel of your home. The intricately detailed designs and natural textures can help add a new dimension to your home and illuminate your aesthetic—providing a subtle finishing touch or a daring accent to reimagine a room. Try to be bold yet balanced, using pendant light fixtures as a tone-setting design element in your home.
Whichever way you style it, remember that pendant lights allow you the flexibility to showcase the nuances of your taste. Loved ones and visitors can immediately get a sense of your design aesthetic by seeing how you have elevated your lighting scheme with thoughtfully chosen fixtures.
