Kitchen Pendant Lighting Tips
Every kitchen is different and with that there are many different uses for kitchen pendant lighting. You may be lighting a work area or lighting a breakfast nook. You may wish to use a single pendant or an entire row of them. No matter what you do, here are some general tips for where and how high to hang pendant lights in the kitchen:
- Islands and Counters: Allow between 28 and 36 inches between the countertop and bottom of the pendant. Keep at least 14" between the pendant and the edge of the counter.
- Kitchen Tables and Nooks: Allow 28 and 32 inches from the table top and the bottom of the pendant. Also be sure that the pendant is at least 12 inches smaller than the width of the table.
- If you're hanging pendants in a row over a counter or island, space them out at approximately 15 inches apart, measured from edge to edge. This ensures even lighting across the work surface.
