As an interior lighting designer, I know how important it is to choose and buy the right led light fixtures for your home.
In this guide, I will introduce you to how to use led pendant lighting in different situations and provide some suggestions and tips on how to buy led pendant lighting.
Under a cabinet
Led pendant lighting under the cabinets can increase the light and visual effect of the kitchen. For pendant lights installed under the cabinets, I suggest choosing something of moderate size and simple shape to ensure you can fully use the limited space.
Under the shelf
Installing a pendant led light under a bookshelf, closet, or other shelf can bring a softer light. Choose a pendant led light shaped to fit the shelf’s size, and avoid colliding with items.
Under the bed
Installing a pendant led light under the bed can add a romantic and cosy atmosphere. Choose a pendant led light of the right size for the bed and use a dimmer switch to achieve different lighting effects.
Behind the computer and TV screen
Installing a pendant led light behind the TV or computer screen can reduce the screen’s reflection and eye strain. Choose a pendant led light with soft colors and moderate brightness, and ensure it does not interfere with the screen.
Above the stairs
Installing a pendant led light above the stairs can increase the safety and visual effect of the stairs. Choose a pendant led light of the right shape and arrange it reasonably according to the length and height of the stairs.
Next to the mirror
Installing a pendant led light next to a mirror can increase the brightness and visual effect of the mirror. Choose a pendant led light suitable for the size of the mirror, and use a dimmer switch to achieve different lighting effects.
Above the bookshelf
Installing a pendant led light above the bookshelf can increase the study’s visual effect and lighting effects. Choose a pendant led light suitable for the size of the bookshelf and pay attention to avoid colliding with the books.
At the top of the closet
Installing led pendant lighting on the top of the closet can increase the brightness and visual effect of the closet. Choose a size suitable for the size of the closet pendant led light, and pay attention to avoid collision with clothing.
In the photo frame inside
Installing pendant led light inside photo frames can increase photos’ brightness and visual effect. Choose a pendant led light suitable for the size of the frame, and pay attention to avoid interference with the photos.
In the sink and the edge of the bathtub
In the sink and the bathtub’s edge, installing pendant led light can increase the brightness and visual effect of the bathroom. Choose a waterproof, suitable for the size of the bathroom pendant led light, and avoid contact with water.

1.What is the best position of LED lights in the room?
A: Whichever you choose, the essential key to an effective LED installation is to make sure the LEDs are located behind a lip, at the edge of your drop-ceiling. The lip should be higher than the LED tape (say 15mm at least).
2.Do you put LED lights on the ceiling or on the wall?
A: A popular place to install LED strip lights is on the ceiling, as the lights provide a comfortable and aesthetically pleasing downlight into the room. Also, it is a simple way to layer lighting.
3.How many lights are needed in a room?
As a handy rule of thumb, a sitting room or bedroom generally requires around 10-20 lumens per square foot, while a bathroom or kitchen needs a stronger lighting level at around 70-80 lumens per square foot. To work out the lumens you need, simply multiply the room’s square footage by this figure.
4.Where is the best place to put a wall lamp?
Generally, wall lights should be positioned around 152-170cm (around 5-5.5ft) above floor level, while multiple wall lights should be placed around 250-300cm (or 8-10ft) apart. It would be best to aim for the top of the wall light to sit at eye level to avoid glare from the exposed bulb.
5.Can you put wall sconces anywhere?
You can add a wall sconce almost anywhere, but for the least amount of work without many complications, you’ll want to install it a few feet above an existing electrical outlet.
6.How far should the LED lights be from the wall?
(Try to fit your coving so the LEDs will sit at least 100mm down from the ceiling and at least 50mm from the wall.) Also, make sure there’s a lip on the coving to hide the LEDs. This is key to creating a much better effect by displaying just the light, not the light source. A lip roughly 20mm in depth is ideal.
7.How high should the LED lights be hung?
The ideal way to use an LED light is to place it close to the canopy without burning the plants. In well-ventilated areas, we have found the mounting height to be as close as 6 inches.
8.How do I clean the pendant led light?
A: You can use a soft cotton cloth to gently wipe the surface of the lamp and avoid using cleaners containing chemicals.
9.What details should I pay attention to with pendant led light?
A: You need to pay attention to issues such as pendant led light colliding with objects, not interfering with screens, being waterproof, and avoiding colliding with books.
10.How to adjust the light brightness of the pendant led light?
A: You can use dimmer switches or smart home control systems and other ways to adjust the brightness of the lights.
