Proper lighting plays an important role in creating the atmosphere in any room. This is important not only in terms of eye comfort, but also to emphasize the style and interior design. Today, the lighting market offers a lot of effective solutions, but this abundance has its own minus because it is not easy to choose the type of lighting design for the room.
What are the advantages of linear chandeliers?
Linear chandeliers provide both task-oriented illumination as well as ambient lighting for a home. They are really useful because of their ability to provide either direct light down onto a surface, like a kitchen table or island, or provide general lighting. This type of linear suspension lighting is perfect for long narrow spaces and is a beautiful complement to rectangular tables. The advantages of linear light fixtures are undeniable. They are lightweight, with strict geometric forms, compatible with any other light sources; consume a minimum of electricity; safe to use; vibration resistant; provide a uniform stream of light without annoying flicker, etc. Linear LED light fixtures save energy which will save financial costs and have a very long service life. In addition, they are safe and do not need special disposal.
A linear chandelier or suspension lighting has one or a series of fixtures connected by a horizontal bar. Light can be on top of the bar or hang from the bottom. Small and complex linear chandeliers have fewer bulbs that can be effectively used to illuminate small areas. A linear chandelier can also be large and extravagant, with over 15 bulbs to emphasize the grandeur of a room. In terms of design, models range from decorative and classic to contemporary focused on simplicity. The basic structure, whether small or large, is to provide optimal lighting with a focus on functionality.
How to choose a linear chandelier or pendant light?
When you want to buy a linear chandelier for your home you need to know exactly where it will be installed and what would be its main function. Are you going to use it as a main light source or as a task lighting? A linear modern light fixture is suitable for your home office, for kitchens as lighting above the island, above the dining table or the foyer. For example, a linear chandelier in the foyer is usually adjusted closer to the ceiling to illuminate the entire space while in the dining room it is lowered to the table to focus on the food area. Due to the shape and size, this type of lighting is also an excellent choice as billiard lighting and will be ideal above the pool table.
