Pendant lighting is still very much a must-have lighting trend in the home, and they’re great for adding a stylish touch to any space.

If you’re wondering on where to install this stylish light fitting, these tips might provide some inspiration, or help to narrow down the rooms you have them put into.

5 Places In Your House To Consider Installing Pendant Lighting

Modern style pendant lights in kitchens are a great fit in sleek and stylish designs, and probably one of the most popular faces you’re likely to find them.

As good as they look in this room, the important thing to remember is the fact that there will be a lot of heat, cooking grease and steam in this room, so you’ll want to consider this when picking out your pendant light.

You want a shade that’s easy to clean, as well as distributes the light easily if they’re the only lighting source you’ll be having in the room.

2. Bedroom

The bedroom might not be your first thought when it comes to pendant lighting, but they can be a great space when you use them in a more design aspect rather than just in the middle of the room.

Why not install pendant lights over each side of the bed hanging over bedside tables. It’s a great way of keeping the space clear without the need of lamps, and they can add a really beautiful touch to the space too.

3. Dining room

The dining room is another space that you’ll often find pendant lighting, with it typically being hung above a dining table. If this is something you’re considering then assess the size of the table, and get a fitting that’s not too big for the table, or too small either.

Dimmer switches are also a good idea for this light because you’ll be able to change the ambiance of the space depending on what it’s being used for, whether that’s a family meal or a cosy dinner party.

4. Bathroom

The bathroom or powder room might not be your first thought when it comes to installing pendant lights, but if the room is big enough they can look stylish in the space. Of course you need to ensure that the IP rating is correct for a room where there is lots of water and steam.

Pendant lights in the bathroom can look great hung either side of the bathroom mirror to create a beautiful design feature or above a free standing bath.
