What size pendants lights should I use
August 25, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I will have an island that is 66 " long by 58" wide. The electrician said to do 2 hanging pendants. My question is I have a choice of 10" wide or 8" wide. What would be the best scale for an island of this size?

The height of your ceiling has an impact on how large the spread of light will be. It is not how many spots up top to measure but if thethe lighted space overlaps all the way to the floor I should think.

Have you considered the rule of threes? Not that it is a hardened rule - two larger would also work fine. Just keep your options open while you have your electrician. Here are a few articles that may offer some additional assistance.
