Pendant lights are a common stumbling block for home renovators as they can really make or break a room. First, a pendant needs to be the right size for its space. Choosing one that’s too big will overpower the room, but go too small and it will look like an afterthought. I often use cheap rice-paper lights to trial different sizes. Where possible, ask to take the light home on approval to cement your choice.

The next thing to consider is the height to hang it at. It needs to be high enough not to intrude into the room but low enough to blend with the atmosphere of the space. Consider what’s under the light and how it looks from below (you don’t want to look up at a bare bulb).

Lastly, think about the light’s aesthetic. Would the room suit a solid light? Or does a more open design work better? Consider how the light is distributed. Is it omni-directional, semi-directional or directional? How does that work with your space? Most of allpersonalized gifts for girlfriend, you should love what you choose, so have fun shopping!
