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?
A large pendant light or a small chandelier are great choices for a smaller island. These lights are typically wired for use with a variety of 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 and styles to match any decorating scheme.
What to do when your island is longer
Six and eight feet are common sizes for kitchen islands, but many people have trouble with light fixture placement above these longer islands. It is a good idea 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 in half by hanging two pendant lights, each centered on a smaller 3-foot section.
You can divide your six foot or eight foot kitchen island into thirds and hang smaller pendant lights instead. Make sure that the pendants you choose are each large enough to light their own smaller section, so that your kitchen island will be well lit overall.
