The Basics Of Kitchen Pendant Lighting

With so many different styles and colors available, homeowners can really begin to customize their kitchen pendant lighting to suit their needs and the style of their homes.

There is no denying that kitchen pendant lighting has been around for many years but has increased in popularity as of late. In fact, with so many different styles and colors available, homeowners can really begin to customize their kitchen pendant lighting to suit their needs and the style of their homes. The reality is, pendants usually offer a lovely combination of unique style along with some amazing brightness — which can really be the perfect addition to any home renovation project. Ultimately, there are many things to take into consideration as you begin choosing the right pendant lighting options for your new kitchen. Here is a helpful guide to help make the decision-making process a little easier. 

Low Voltage Versus Line Voltage Pendant Lights

Beyond just the style of pendant lights, there are two different types of pendant lights out there: low voltage and line voltage. In fact, these two distinctions among pendant lights are a key decision that any homeowner will need to make when going with pendant lights in the kitchen. The reality is, low voltage pendants tend to use a tiny transformer that converts the standard home current of 120 volts down to 12 volts. Ultimately, this means that the pendants are then allowed to hang from a very thin cable or one that is virtually unnoticeable. On the other hand, line voltage pendant lights are designed to simply use the standard home current — which then means that they never require a transformer to operate. 

The Number Of Pendant Lights To Install

Understanding just how many pendant lights make the most sense in your kitchen can be tricky when creating a plan for the design of your home. In fact, many homeowners really struggle with knowing just how many pendant lights to install in the space. The reality is, the most common number is three pendant lights but it really is specific to your home and kitchen overall. Ultimately, understanding the space and utilizing it in the best way possible can really be the best approach to take when choosing how many pendant lights to install without overdoing it.
