Pending: 33 Tips for Getting the Decor Right

9 mins read

In the past, chandeliers and pendants were used only on dining tables. Today, creativity expands and the pendant is spreading throughout all rooms of the house. They are more and more in decoration and the trend of some years and has been gaining more space and creativity with the use of different types of differentiated lamps, such as filament lamps that have become the object of desire in homes and commercial environments such as restaurants and bars.

In my projects, I have already suggested to clients the use of pendants in a double room using symmetrically or asymmetrically above the bedside tables, for example, a pendant on one side and a fixed reading lamp on the other side. It is a good suggestion for those who want something different and cozy, as it makes the room more cozy.

Tips for successful lighting

I always tell my clients that making a lighting project is very important and it is essential to have a very cozy decoration. When the right foot of the environment allows, it is possible to make a recess in plaster lining and embed the light spot according to the furniture layout already defined and the pendant comes into the scene as a prominent item, which is even more valued in a well-lit scene or context. The plaster ceiling must be a maximum of 15 cm, as it is enough to embed the spots and pass the conduits with the distribution of the wiring.

The important thing is to predict the point of the centralized pendant with the furniture or element you want to highlight. Therefore, the importance of a project so that the electrician can execute the electrical point exactly. This is a very common mistake and the final look does not favor the environment.

The height of the pendant is another point that people often miss: in the case of a dining room table, the pendant is ideal to be 60 to 70 cm from the table, but this is not a rule. It may vary according to the pendant model. A good tip is to follow the installation and visualize and adjust the wire up or down and try to visualize the pendant close to the height of your eyes. In this case it is not comfortable to have a very strong lamp on the pendant, as it is uncomfortable at mealtimes, since the person will be sitting and with the lighting directed downwards.

The size of the pendant in any environment or situation is also very important and should be carefully assessed and chosen. For a gourmet balcony, for example, I have already suggested smaller pendants, but in various quantities, forming a horizontal line. If you have space for an island in the environment, the chandeliers for the dining room are very charming and inviting to receive friends or family at home. Already a very large pendant in such a situation would be uncomfortable, after all, those who pass by are at risk of hitting their heads.
