Pendant lighting, as a whole, has become a very popular trend over the last few years, somewhat making a comeback from the 1960’s and 1970s. While pendant lighting comes in all shapes, sizes, and materials, one version of it is actually somewhat new, and may be the most popular selection when it comes to those materials Glass.
Glass pendant lights offer a unique lighting solution to many different rooms of the home, from classy and modern to charming and rustic. So, how can you use glass pendant lights in your home?
Choose your style
As stated above, glass pendant lights come in a wide variety of different styles, so it’s important to choose which style works for you. There are very traditional forms, that are basic cylinders for your bulbs to fit inside of, and then hang from a chandelier. On the opposite end of the spectrum, you can actually get mouth-blown glass, custom designed to fit your needs. Obviously, because of the wide spectrum of designs and style, the spectrum of cost also varies greatly when it comes to glass pendant lights.
For a more modern look, the more cylindric-style fixtures actually work well. They’ll add a touch of class and sophistication to almost any room in the house. If you’re really looking for elegance, those custom-made glass pieces are a perfect solution. No two will ever be alike, and the subtle curves and intricacies of the glass will surely be a conversation piece you’ll love to talk about again and again.
