If you are going for a new look for the pendant lighting you currently have, here are some easy DIY styling ideas that you may want to consider to provide your home something different and fresh. For old chandeliers that seem to have lost their aesthetic relevance, you can modernise them to fit the current design of your home by spray painting them with an opaque colour, which is quite in trend these days. To make them more energy-efficient, make the switch from the traditional incandescent bulbs to compact fluorescent bulbs or CFLS, which use about 75% less energy and last ten times longer. Now, if you are really gunning for bigger energy savings, you may want to invest in light emitting diodes or LEDs, which are slightly pricier but use 80% to 90% less energy and can last you over ten years.
For a nice play of colours, say, you want to go for a Mediterranean appeal and you prefer a DIY method of achieving the look, you can paint clear glass pendant lights with transparent and iridescent enamel paint. You can use a wide range of vibrant colours to achieve that polished or raw stained glass effect. Iridescent paint produces that special effect that changes hues depending on the amount of light available. Transparent paint, on the other hand, is very smooth and allows light to shine through. There are still so many other decorating ideas for pendant lighting and you can use all sorts of materials to help you create the look for your home that best reflects your aesthetic inclination and personality.
