Below is a schematic of the staircase area in a home we are building. Where the staircase is, there is a 20-ft ceiling due to it being open to the first floor and handrailing all around it. Our pendant is 36"W x 36" L x 39" H. Any thoughts on how far the bottom of the light should be from the bottom floor? I was thinking 13-feet and it would be about eye level from the stairway landing.
