What kind of pendant lights are best for my home?


You’ll want to consider your décor and the overall style of your home and go from there. Try to choose similar or complementary colors, or go big and bold with a pendant light that provides an interesting contrast to the room. Large, single pendant lights can make a statement, but don’t overlook smaller options as these can be just as bold when grouped together. If you do decide to go with a set of hanging lights, remember the “Rule of Three”, which will help you maintain a rhythmic balance. Whatever you do, make sure your pendant lighting doesn’t create a visual barrier in the room.

How high should I position my pendant lamp?


How far your pendant light is suspended from the floor or a table surface depends on what area you’re placing it in. In general:

• Dining Table: The pendant should be suspended about 30 to 36 inches above the table. This will allow for ample illumination while reducing glare at the same time.
• Bar or Raised Counter:: The bottom of your pendant light should float about 30 inches above the counter surface. For desks, bring the light in closer to the work surface by allowing your pendant lamp to float about 16 inches from the surface. However, this can change depending on the height of you and your family.
• Foyer: Illuminate your space without encroaching on head space by suspending your hanging lamp about seven feet from the floor.
• Bathroom: Cast a flattering light in your bathroom vanity area by suspending an eye-catching hanging lamp or cluster of pendants near eye level and about 18 inches from the center of your sink. This unconventional lighting style will eliminate those pesky shadows under your chin, cheeks and eyes.
• Ceilings Higher Than Eight Feet: If you have ceilings taller than eight feet, be sure to add on three inches for each additional foot of ceiling height.
