A pendant light that's ideal for one space may not work well in another. The location in which you plan to install a pendant should play an important role in your purchase decision.
Kitchen Pendant Lighting
Task lighting is imperative in the kitchen for food prep and cleaning. Choose a downlight pendant such as a linear or series of mini pendants to hang above the kitchen island. Learn more about the pendant placement for kitchen island lighting with this easy guide
Dining Room Pendant Lighting
Dining rooms are ideal places for linear pendants because they work so well lined up over long dining tables. Also, a drum pendant with fabric can add a classy look in place of a chandelier, especially over a round table.
Living Room Pendant Lighting
Living rooms are versatile spaces with the need for task and ambient lighting, so most types of pendant lighting can fit in here. Bowl pendants work particularly well in areas that require ambient light.
Foyer Pendant Lighting
The foyer is an area where task lighting is important, but you may also choose to illuminate the area with ambient light. A dome pendant can work wonders here, but lantern and globe pendants make a beautiful statement, too.
Expert Tip: If you want to install a pendant light with a downrod on a sloped ceiling, you can do so by using a sloped ceiling adapter. These adapters work in conjuction with the light's original hanging hardware and are typically installed between the canopy and the downrod.
