Not Sure How to Place Your Kitchen Pendants?  Check Out Or Guidelines!

Pendant light fixtures are truly universal because they are easy to install and can be used virtually anywhere. They come in various shapes and sizes, but you know them by their one similarity: They hang like a pendant from the ceiling. The kitchen is a common place to hang pendant lights, especially over the kitchen island or for use as modern lighting by hanging them over the kitchen table. How many lights should hang over a kitchen island? Take a look at this guide to help you decide how many to purchase.

Size Matters!
The number of island pendants that one kitchen should have is wholly dependent on the size of your kitchen island. There is no set rule for island sizes, but generally the smaller start at 24″ x 48″, while some go up to as many as 10′. For your buying convenience, we will start with smaller islands first and then move onto the more common sizes of six and eight feet.

Does my kitchen need a single pendant?

This black pendant light is a great choice for a smaller island. It is rather large in diameter, which would light up a 24″ area easily. These pendant lights are great because they are wired for service with compact fluorescent and HID bulbs, creating a clean and bright kitchen area to work with. Pendant light fixtures can be ordered with accessories such as cast or wire guards. In addition, their shade design comes in multiple colors to match any color scheme in your home or professional kitchen area. These details can be handled when you call customer service to place your orders.

What to do when your Island is Longer

Six and eight feet are common sizes for kitchen islands, but many people have trouble with placing the light fixtures. It is a good idea that if you’re willing to hang pendant lighting, then you’d want to divide your island into smaller sections and hang more than one pendant. For example, if your island is six feet long, you can easily divide it into two sections by hanging two pendant lights. You need to order larger light fixtures for such a situation, so that your kitchen island is well lit. While you’re searching for the right look, consider dividing your six foot or eight foot kitchen island into thirds and hang smaller pendant lights instead.
