How to choose the best ceiling light
The best pendant light, or ceiling light, for your space will depend on which room you are choosing your light for. A kitchen will likely require something more utilitarian, especially if placed over a workstation or kitchen island. Glass, metal and other wipe clean materials are preferred here as splashes and stains from food will, somehow, manage to get up there. Dining tables, indeed dining rooms as a whole, can handle more of a focal point, but will benefit from a dimmable bulb to create more ambient lighting. The same applies for bedrooms, where statement pieces will be seen more readily from the vantage point of your bed.
There's a whole world of ceiling lights out there, from flush lights that work well in bathrooms, kitchens and hallways, to highly decorative pendant lights that will enhance your living room or bedroom. Here are our top picks.
