Creating Visual Balance with Hubbardton Forge Pendant Lights
A new pendant light can do a lot for a room. It’s a great way to update a space without having to redo the entire room. However, adding a new pendant to an otherwise finished room does come with a few considerations. The pendant has to work with the rest of the room to create a sense of visual harmony. When looking for a new pendant, go for brands like Hubbardton Forge that carry a variety of styles. This should help you find something that easily blends with the rest of the room. Here are a few elements to consider when shopping for your new Hubbardton Forge pendants.
When choosing a Hubbardton Forge pendant light, make sure the size of the pendant works with the rest of the room and the furniture below it. For example, if you are looking for a dining room pendant to hang over your table, you’ll want to look at the size of the table. If you have a large, heavy table, it might look funny to have a small or slender pendant hanging above it. Similarly, a grand, large pendant will look oversized above a small four-person table. A large room with a high ceiling typically looks best with a large pendant, whereas smaller spaces look best with small pendants of simpler design.
Just like size and scale, the shape of your pendant light should be carefully weighed against the shape of the room or space, as well as against the furniture and accessories that are currently in the space. Does the room have an overall sharp or angular look? Does it have smooth, fluid lines? Are there unique architectural details? Is it filled with large, bold details or fine, delicate accents? Whatever the shape of the space, it should be considered when choosing your Hubbardton Forge sconces or pendants. Conventional wisdom says to match the pendant to the predominant shapes in the room; however, sometimes a contrast is needed for visual balance. If you’re unsure of which direction to go in, consult with a designer for their ideas and advice before checking out Hubbardton Forge’s range of pendants.
Of course, the most important consideration when choosing a pendant light to match a room is the overall style or aesthetic of the space. Is it the room modern and minimalist? Is it warm and rustic? Perhaps it’s formal and ornate or simple and clean. Whatever the overall vibe of your room is, choose a Hubbardton Forge pendant that reflects the same aesthetic and has the same qualities, otherwise you risk a mismatch. Choose a few Hubbardton Forge styles that you would describe in the same terms as the rest of the room, compare them, and choose the style that fits the best.
Revamping a space doesn’t have to be complicated. It can be as simple as choosing a new pendant light that blends well with the space and achieves a sense of visual balance and harmony. Check out the lighting fixtures of Hubbardton Forge at Crescent Harbor today to get started.
