Kitchen pendant lighting is quickly finding its way into every household. In fact, even some of the commercial kitchens have started using pendant lights rather than conventional ceiling lights. Using kitchen pendant lighting in households has its own share of advantages. These advantages motivate people to use this class of lighting.
There are 4 primary classes of benefits that one can hope to enjoy using kitchen pendant lighting. These classes of benefits are summarized below.
- Focus in lighting: Unlike the high-up ceiling lighting, one can set better focus at the right places of requirements. For example, you may want to have more light on your counter tops and islands compared to other places in your kitchen. With pendant lighting, you would be able to set the bottom of the fixture to be low-hanging enough such that the primary focus of the lighting is much better centralized at the right counter top or island. In addition, you can hang the pendant as low as around six to six-and-half feet since you would not move at places that are directly above your table. This sort of fixture would give you a tremendous improvement in setting the focus of the light. Your eyes would be strained lesser if you are trying to read a recipe from the cookbook and cook it.
- Control of spread of light: The lower you hang your kitchen pendant lighting, the less will be the spread of the light. In other words, the light will be used to serve your needs rather than spread all over the kitchen. On the other hand, if you raise the pendant height then the light will be better distributed across the kitchen, providing more brightness to the kitchen as a whole. So if you use two pendants in a combination with one hanging low and the other hanging high, then you would be able to meet both your requirements of god focus and well-distributed kitchen lighting.
- Ease of maintenance: Accept the reality – every light needs cleaning. With a relatively low-hanging pendant, cleaning and maintaining becomes a much easier task compared to cleaning a ceiling mounted light. You would be able to physically reach the light practically without any height support, and thus control the cleaning much better.
- Decor improvement: Kitchen pendant lighting dramatically improves the looks of your kitchen. These lights today are available in a number of classic and contemporary models and looks with gorgeous and stylish finishing. Select the one that goes well with the rest of your kitchen, and the overall kitchen decor will be so much improved that it will probably make your neighbor jealous.
As you see, the benefits of using kitchen pendant lighting are extremely practical in real life. These are some of the primary reasons that such lighting keeps attracting more and more people.
