Drum Pendant Lighting

The general shape of a drum pendant light is endlessly versatile, suitable to any interior lighting design scheme. Starting from the simple form of a drum pendant light fixture, amazing things can happen - the sky is the limit. The exact style of a drum pendant is dependent on the choice of color (natural or bold), material (fabric, metal, wood, glass) and any other decorative details (fringe, crystal, pleating, hand-painting, etc.). Such possibilities give drum light fixtures the illumination and decorative drama of a formal chandelier, but in a more compact, modern-looking package.

Where Drum Pendant Lighting Work Best

Large or small, the proportions of drum ceiling light fixtures make them ideal as centerpieces in multiple areas of the home. In the dining room, a drum pendant is a great option over the dining table and small drum lights work well in breakfast nooks (ideally in a style that coordinates with the other lighting in the adjoining kitchen). In the kitchen, drum pendants find their home over the kitchen island, providing ample light output for cooking and other tasks. In the entryway or foyer, a drum pendant light makes a design statement friends and family will immediately notice. Finally, consider a large drum ceiling light in the living room in place of a formal chandelier or track lighting. Wherever you have the ceiling space, you'll find that a drum pendant offers a lot of decorative character.

Choosing the Right Drum Pendant Size

In entryways, foyers and large living rooms, you'll need a large drum chandelier, while a space like the kitchen nook will require a much smaller drum light. Look to the dimensions of the fixture you are interested in to fully understand its height, width, weight and how far it hangs from the ceiling.

Other Great Options

While similar in shape and style, a flush or semi-flush drum ceiling light will mount close to the ceiling. And if you love the versatility of these drum lights, you'll want to check out the selection of bowl pendant lights. Bowl pendants are also offered in a variety of sizes, shapes and colors meant to fit in a wide range of interiors.
