Hanging Light Fixture Types

Choosing the right hanging lamp for the right space is important. Here are some things you should know to help you out.

Antique Hanging Lights Such As Chandeliers

Chandeliers never seem to go out of style. The antique, old world style is very popular in homes right now. Typically in Mission and Arts & Crafts styles boasting wrought iron and iron scrolls to warm any space. These are perfect for entry ways and hallways. For a more sophisticated look, such as for a formal dining room, stick with a more traditional chandelier style in crystal or brass designs.

Hanging Swag Lamps

Hanging swag lamps utilize a cord or chain that is swagged between two or more points which give swag lamps their name. They come in many materials such as wicker, stained glass, crystal & rattan. Hanging swag light fixtures have been around for many decades and are available everywhere. Swag lights can be used in almost any room depending on the style.

Hanging Pendant Light Fixtures

Hanging pendant lights are so versatile you can use them in just about any room. They are great over a kitchen countertop or over a kitchen table. For an office setting you can hang the pendant lower for better task lighting. Hanging Pendant lamps come in modern/contemporary styles as well as old-world antique styles such as tiffany lamps. Hanging pendant lamps are great because not only do they provide accent and beauty, but they also provide form and function. Learn more about pendant lights.

Hanging Outdoor Lighting

A great way to add ambiance to your outdoor living space is to add a hanging lantern over a table or deck. These typically hang by a chain and add warm illumination throughout the night. Of course you can always use a hanging ceiling fan if there is a need to cool your outdoor living space, or you could hang a simple chandelier style light that offers beautiful design while lighting the outdoor space for functionality as well. Learn more about other outdoor lighting options.
