Make a Bold & Modern Statement with Drum Pendant Lights

Drum pendant lights are a classy, contemporary, artistic solution to your lighting needs. A unique alternative to a chandelier, a pendant light with a drum shade will draw your eye upward and make a stunning addition to any room. At 2Modern, you’ll find an unbeatable selection of drum style pendants to complete the look in your modern home.

How To Choose The Perfect Drum Pendant Light

First, consider the size of your room and the size of your light. The perfect drum pendant lighting will be large enough to properly illuminate your space and make a grand statement, but not so large that it overwhelms the room or so small that it disappears into the ceiling. A great way to choose the right size fixture for your space is to measure the room. Take those measurements (in feet), add them together, and use that number (in inches) as the width for your fixture. For example, if your room is 20’ x 15’, the sum is 35. You’ll want to choose a drum pendant light around 35” wide.

Next, think about the material that works best in your space. Wood drum pendant lighting takes inspiration from nature, while metal adds an industrial touch. Glass is a timeless, elegant choice. Opt for a cloth shade to add texture and dimension, but take care never to install lighting with fabric components in a kitchen.

You’ll also want to weigh your options when it comes to the color of your drum pendant lighting. White brings a clean, chic, completely contemporary look to your home. Gold or brass tones are equal parts traditional and modern, adding a metallic, eye-catching glimmer to any space. Black lighting adds richness and depth. Choose a drum pendant light in a bold pop of green, red, or blue to add color and interest. Opt for a fixture in a neutral shade of brown for warmth and beauty.

Think about the type of lighting you would prefer in your home. Many modern light fixtures feature LED lights, which are energy efficient and cost-effective. There are also plenty of options that utilize traditional bulbs, which some people still prefer.

Finally, consider the features and style that appeal to you. Perhaps a crystal pendant is just the sparkle and texture you’ve been searching for. Maybe a boho wickered design would make the most sense in your space. A tiered look may bring unbeatable dimension and create a stunning layered look. Whatever your design preferences, 2Modern has a drum pendant light that’s sure to complete the design aesthetic in your space.
