Pendant Lighting Questions
You may wonder, what exactly is a pendant light? A pendant light is a single bulb light fixture, suspended from the ceiling by a cord, chain, or rod.
What Height Should I Hang My Pendant Lighting Fixtures?
In general, the bottom of your pendant lighting fixtures should hang 30 – 36″ from the surface of your countertop, island, or table.
If Hanging My Pendant Lights Above an Island, How Much Space Should Be Between the Pendants?
I recommend having approximately 24″ of space between fixtures. This should be measured from the widest point of the pendant.
What Color Pendant Light Should I Choose?
If you’re having trouble deciding what color pendant light to choose, use the hardware in your house as a guide. What color are your faucets, door handles and cabinet pulls? Are your chandeliers gold, silver, black, oil-rubbed bronze? You won’t go wrong by matching the fixtures and hardware you already have.
The biggest problem you’ll have when purchasing pendant lighting fixtures is that once you change out one pendant light, you’ll want to change all of them, trust me, I know!
