The kitchen is one of the most important rooms of every home: Here, the family comes together to cook, eat and spend time together. Therefore, a kitchen should be practical, functional, comfortable and inviting at the same time.
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.
Including accent lights in built-in shelving is a great way to highlight special objects and accessories. In this room from Juliette Byrne, the eye is immediately drawn to the lit up shelves, making for a bright and beautiful focal wall.
For larger living spaces, a matched pair or even a set of multiple pendants can add style throughout. Space them evenly and hang them close to the ceiling. Linear pendants cover lots of area and help direct light to distant corners of a room.
