When you (or your budget) aren’t up to the task of rewiring to allow your pendant lights to hang from the ceiling, take a look around. If placing the fixtures in a nearby wall works, install hardware over the desired location and drape the light cords over the piping. This solution looks best with multiples of the same light.
Lighting above Your Kitchen Island. Preparing dinner or decorating the birthday cake - the light in the work area of a kitchen should be as bright as possible. Experts recommend a neutral white light for your kitchen workspace with a luminous flux of 500 lumens per square meter.
Get the popular industrial look for less. Very basic pendant lamps (even just exposed bulbs) can be rigged to vintage barn pulleys from the flea market for a high-end rustic look—on a budget. If you’re feeling ambitious, you can even swing by the hardware store to pick up the items you need to wire the bulbs on your own.
Do your homework. With all the new light bulbs, transitioning from incandescent to LEDs, figure how just how much light you need. Make sure you follow a manufacturer’s recommended wattages—especially the upper limits. Overamping can result in overheating, possibly shattering glass shades, for example.
