Place them wherever you need a dash of decorative appeal and a splash of light.
Where Wall Mounted Pendant Lighting Works Best
As is the nature of wall-mounted lighting, wall pendant lights will work anywhere that there’s wall space for them. They’re ideal for bedside lighting, where they can provide a decorative dangle that emits plenty of light for late-night reading without cluttering up your side tables. Similarly, they’ll bring a bright, fashionable flair when suspended over a desk, freeing up space for you to get your work done. Wall-mounted pendant lights also make a stylish addition to a bathroom vanity where counter space is limited. Additionally, dark hallways, entryways, and patios will benefit from hanging wall pendant lighting.
Favorite Types of Wall Mounted Pendant Lights
Wall-mounted pendant lights most likely conjure up images of rustic and industrial decor with exposed bulbs and a natural simplicity, but they’re so much more. Transitional options provide a new take on an old classic with familiar lantern shapes and unexpected materials and arm options. Super modern wall pendants stick to the bare minimum with clean arms and uninhibited bulbs. With choices that subtly brighten a room or others that demand attention, it’s hard to pick just one favorite wall pendant light.
How to Choose the Best Wall Pendant Light
For a primary light source, wall mounted pendant lights without dense shades will work best. On the other hand, if you’re interested in ambient lighting, you’ll need one with a shade to soften and diffuse the light. Because they hang, we recommend installing them slightly higher than you would your typical wall sconce to ensure that the light is exactly where you need it. Clear shades give the brightest light with a contemporary feel. Chandelier-esque silhouettes add a sparkling decorative note and provide an alluring, ambient light. These attractive and functional pieces can blend in or stand out, it’s up to you and what works best in your home.
