What you need to know before buying a room pendant
There is no magic formula when it comes to decorating, but of course there are always those basic tips that help us make the best decisions, especially when it comes to the technical side. And with room pendants would be no different, so take note of some important tips you need to keep in mind before buying your pendant:
There are different types of pendants made of different materials, you already know. But how do you know which one is best or best suited for your project? The best strategy is to know beforehand what kind of lighting you want to create with the pendant.
For those who want a more comprehensive light that permeates the environment, the best indication is the pendants made of translucent materials, such as glass, crystal and acrylic, or even opt for the exposed lamp, without dome. For those who want a directed light, suitable for reading, for example, should choose pendants made of metal, plastic, steel or wood that is all closed, with opening only at the bottom to pass the light, which in this case is all projected downwards.
Hollow or side-hung pendants create more dramatic lighting, perfect for creating a cozy mood in the room, especially if a yellow lamp is used.
Height and size
As well as the material, size and height of the bedroom pendant are also important for maintaining both the aesthetics of the room and the functionality. If the intention is to place a pendant on the side of the bed, on the nightstand, it is interesting that it is between half and 1/3 the size of the furniture. That is, for a bedside with 60 centimeters, the ideal is that the pendant has between 20 to 30 centimeters. However, this is not an absolute rule, it will all depend on the effect and highlight you want to give the piece. This calculation is just a reference for those who are afraid to dare or commit excesses.
The size of the pendant should also be chosen according to its function. A pendant that will illuminate the room completely is usually in the center of the room and is larger than those used as a secondary bedside lighting option.
Regarding height, the concept is almost the same. It will all depend on the purpose of the pending. For broader illumination, it is recommended that the pendant be closer to the ceiling, this also eliminates the risk of someone bumping your head into the piece. On the other hand, the pendants near the headboard can be installed lower, about 50 centimeters above the nightstand. However, do some tests before bedtime and make sure the height meets your needs.
