How Low Should Kitchen Mini-Pendant Lights Hang?
It's a truth universally acknowledged that the kitchen is one of the most important rooms to light properly. And for that task, mini-pendant chandeliers are a perfect option over kitchen islands and counters. Of course, this begs the question: how low should kitchen mini-pendant lights hang? While there are no steadfast rules, here are some general considerations:
- Pendants should generally be placed 28 to 34 inches above a countertop.
- If you're placing them in a row over an island, make sure they're placed low enough to maintain even lighting across the entire surface.
- Because counter tops can range in height (from a low of 36 to 42 inches for bar seating areas), remember to measure up from the surface (not down from the ceiling) when installing.
Another question you may be asking is how many kitchen mini pendants are needed? Well, the answer is simple. Use as many as it takes to ensure you have a well-lit work area.
