If you’re considering hanging these lights above a table or counter, the general rule will be to hang them approximately 30 to 40 inches above the work surface. Before finalizing the installation, check the height. If someone’s in a sitting position at the table, the light should not be in way.
Whatever type of light fitting you‘re thinking of purchasing, you should take time to think about the effect you‘re hoping to achieve, and this means taking into account the size of the space you are planning to illuminate as well as the rest of the dcor. It‘s common sense, after all, that if you’re lighting, say, a narrow hallway, you’ll need a smaller fitting than if you were lighting a large lounge or dining room. In fact, in the larger space you will need more than one pendant to prevent casting ugly shadows.
There is however one drawback. Most of these lights are designed to push light directly on to the space you want lit. Generally, they are more spot light in nature. And while there are some pendants that disperse light over a wide area, if this is your goal you may need to look elsewhere. Or better still, use a different fixture to disperse light, and use a pendant to highlight certain areas of the room. In most cases, but certainly not all, pendant lights will not be your sole source of light in a room.
