One important factor to consider when looking at pendant lights is your ceiling height. Unless the pendant is to be hung over a countertop or table, the style is best installed in rooms with a ceiling height of at least nine feet. When hanging a pendant light over a table or countertop, allow 28 inches to 32 inches above the surface of the table, adjusting slightly for personal preference, lighting fixture size or ceiling height. When hanging pendant lighting over a sink in a master bedroom suite, ensure that the fixtures are hanging high enough to clear the head of anyone using the sink. In addition, lights used in the bathroom should be made of materials that are rated for damp rooms.
Before making a purchase, make sure you have measurements of tables and sofas so that you can properly scale pieces. A photo of your room is helpful, so you can imagine how different shapes and materials will play, like open weaves, cages, wire lamps, antiqued metal or on-trend mixed metals. And try to see what the lamp looks like illuminated. Some new layered lamps have sheer outer fabric and diffusers that create a soft haze of ambient light within.
