Hanging lights & pendant lights: floating beauties

Sitting in the dark? A quick press of the switch and a hanging or pendant light illuminates the entire room. When it comes to our models, we not only focus on function and quality, but also on an attractive design for your interior. An LED pendant light in particular should have a shape that fits perfectly with your furnishing style so that you can use its atmospheric light to create a harmonious atmosphere that transforms your home into a cozy and stylish ambience. Choose one of our hanging or pendant lights from our online shop and let your four walls shine in a new light.

Hanging lights in focus: What should you pay attention to?

This type of lamp is a modern successor to the chandelier, which is often characterized by modern LEDs as light sources. Basically, the classic pendant light hangs freely from the ceiling, while a wall light, for example, is permanently mounted on the wall. The hanging lamp is usually connected to a textile or plastic cable that illuminates the surrounding area for even light distribution. This ensures a pleasant light, especially in the area directly under the lamp. Before buying a pendant light, you should consider the following points:

  1. Ceiling height and room size: Check the ceiling height and the size of the room in which the hanging light is to be installed so that a bright light is optimally displayed.
  2. Style and design: Choose a model that suits your interior style. This way you always look stylish and elegant. We also stock height-adjustable pendant lights to make your selection easier.
  3. Light intensity and light color: Decide how bright the lamp should be and which light color suits your room best. Warm white light creates a cozy atmosphere, while cold white light is more suitable for work areas.
  4. Dimmability: Depending on the individual lighting conditions in your room - influenced by daylight, darkness, position of furniture, etc. - you can conjure up your own light show with dimmed light.

Hanging and pendant lights: This is where they should hang

Practically speaking, a pendant lamp can be hung anywhere that it is securely attached to the ceiling. However, it is usually placed directly above a table or in the middle of a room. This has the advantage that it illuminates the area in a targeted manner and creates a pleasant atmosphere. In addition, the room appears visually more harmonious due to its placement in the center, creating a cozy and inviting atmosphere, especially in the dining or living room. Atmospheric accents can also be created using indirect light that radiates from the middle of the room to the last corners.

Tip: Make sure that the pendant light is not hung too low to avoid glare. The ideal height depends on the size of the room and the exact dimensions of the lamp.

Hanging and pendant lights: always at the right height

  • A hanging light should neither be too low so that it becomes a nuisance nor too high that it can no longer illuminate the area below. Follow our general recommendations for appropriate rooms to find the optimal height:
  • In the hallway: In rooms of normal height (2.30 to 2.40 meters), the lamps should be installed approximately 20 to 45 centimeters below the ceiling.
  • Pendant lamp above the dining table: 75 centimeters between the table top and the lower edge is good - a little higher than above a coffee table. Suspended lights have a particularly aesthetic effect here.
  • Above the kitchen island: To ensure you can work easily, you should install the pendant light at shoulder height (standing).
  • Above the bedside table: There should be at least 30 centimeters of space between the table and the hanging lamp. Of course, this also depends on how high you are lying due to the pillows and whether there are any tall objects on the bedside table.
  • Above the coffee table: 65 to 70 centimeters between the bottom edge of the lamp and the table top.
