How many pedestal lights should I put above my kitchen island?
October 8, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Is there a rule of thumb as to how many pedestal lughts to put above a kitchen island. My island is going to be 9 feet long in a standard white & marble kitchen & I am thinking about installing 3 normal size pedestal lights. I don't have any dimensions at this point in time, but definitely don't want really big & chunky pedestal lights.
Thanks for any advice...

Do you mean pendant? :) I bet you have a bath remodel on your mind as well?
I don't know the rule, but my first thought was one for every 3'. I could have read that somewhere; I'm not sure why it popped into my head. I'm sure one of these super smart Houzzer's will have a real answer for you.

Three pendants is good. One in the center and the other two about 36" away.

LBC, that's what I was thinking as well. Since I've ordered lights from you in the past, I wonder if I read it on your website. :)
