Touch lamps are an option too, operating without the clunky switches and providing a modern "touch" to a room. Simply switch them on and off with a touch. Many have various light emitting settings which can be cycled through in 3 or 4 touches, to help you get the degree of brightness that suits best.
Pendant lighting should be hung about 32" to 40" above the kitchen table for nice lighting for a meal. If you are going to be using it as a reading light instead of a table light, you may want to lower the hang height for more direct lighting. Attaching a dimmer control is going to be ideal for a reading light, because the light directed straight down could become very bright, and now you have the flexibility to use the same light for many different tasks.
Victorian Chandeliers - You do not have to live in a Victorian mansion to add crystal or glass-drop chandeliers. In fact, if you have a formal dining area or baby grand piano, you can use a crystal chandelier for that area. If you have gracefully legged chairs and tables in your living area, crystal chandeliers can also fit. If you decorate in chintz and floral patterns, glass-drop chandeliers can offer the same feel as crystal without being quite as formal.
The most common variety which has halogen bulbs cannot be right for everyone. These bulbs can be very bright and tire the eyes. These are definitely not recommended for the children. They cannot study for long hours without the eyes getting droopy and tired. Some times the glimmer and flicker of long use of the halogen lamp can be another strenuous factor to the eyes. This kind of light is very focused only on the text that is being read. The other areas of the desk remain dark, unless the other light is on in the room. When one is looking for desk lamps, the main issue is the bulb and the light it throws on the study material and work at hand. The design and features come second. The utility stands over the décor part.
