Here are some pendant lights that I found and think are gorgeous in any space and really light up your home. They add color and personality to your interior. To me, there shapely, funky, sexy and chic. I’ve been seeing pendant lighting everywhere and they’re coming back into style. If you want something different than chandeliers, pendants are scaled-down and are a more affordable option to try instead.

Here are some tips on hanging pendant lighting.

Kitchen:
Hanging pendant lighting in a dinning room table or high bar should be about 30″ above the table. This would be about 6′ from the floor.

In a room or entry way:
The light should hang at least 7 feet from the floor. This allows enough room for people to walk underneath it with no problem. This includes entry ways, bathrooms, stairwells and other places you decide.
