What are LED pendant lights?
LED pendant lights are often used in living rooms, dining rooms, hallways, bedrooms and kitchens. LED pendant lights can provide lighting for an entire room, provide ambient lighting or just highlight certain areas of the room.
LED pendant lights come in many shapes, sizes and styles so you can choose the one that suits your design tastes best. Below is some helpful information to consider when you buy pendant lights online....
What size LED pendant lights should I use?
The larger the LED pendant lights, the more light it will produce which may not be desirable in smaller spaces, especially if you’re using the LED pendant lights as ambient lighting. Another consideration for when you buy pendant lights online that are too large for your space, is that they can also dwarf the area. On the flip side, LED pendant lights that are far too small for a space can look awkward.
A general rule of thumb when measuring LED pendant lights is:
1. Measure the length and width of the space you want the LED pendant lights in
2. Add these two numbers together
3. Divide by 15
This is the rough diameter your LED pendant lights should be.
It’s important to also consider where the LED pendant lights will be installed. If you buy pendant lights online with the intention for installation above a kitchen island or rectangular table, long and slim rectangle LED pendant lights may create a more cohesive look. Modern linear lighting installed above tables and kitchen islands should also have enough space to avoid glare.

What height LED pendant lights should I use?
Height is another important consideration when you buy pendant lights online. If you buy pendant lights online that are for the centre of spaces, such as living rooms, the typical rule is to not have the LED pendant lights hang lower than 2.1m above the floor. This is to avoid people bumping into the LED pendant lights. If the LED pendant lights are closer to a wall, above furniture, or wall mounted then this rule can be omitted.
For stairs, hanging LED pendant lights around 2.4 to 2.6m above the stairs are ideal. This is so when you walk down the stairs you don’t feel like the LED pendant lights are too much in your face.
For ceilings that are too low for hanging LED pendant lights, wall mount LED pendant lights can be a great alternative. These LED pendant lights can be installed onto walls so as not to intrude on the limited space. Wall mount LED pendant lights can also be built slightly into your wall to save even more space, while still offering all the lighting benefits of ceiling mount LED pendant lights.

How many LED pendant lights should I install?
The number of LED pendant lights you should install depends on the application and desired aesthetic. A standard rule, odd numbers are more visually appealing for modern pendant lighting.
If you’re after a clean and minimalist look, sleek linear LED pendant lights are a great choice. Linear modern pendant lighting can add elegance and value to a space while not being a distracting lighting solution.
If the LED pendant lights are going to be installed in bedrooms, wall mount LED pendant lights installed on either side of the bed are great for providing ambient and reading lighting, while keeping bedside tables tidy.
As with many lighting solutions, even though there is a recommended way to install modern pendant lighting, it is ultimately down to personal tastes.
