How do you pick pendant lights for a kitchen island?

Mainly used for task and accent lighting over kitchen islands, pendant lights have grown in popularity. Yet, the main reason behind that is that pendant lights are also enough to provide the entire kitchen with efficient light only by themselves. Though they are a fail-safe option both in functional and aesthetic terms, there are still a few details to keep in mind when picking a pendant light for a kitchen island

First, get something that reflects your kitchen’s overall style unless you aim for an eclectic kitchen.

Secondly, decide how many pendants you will need, depending on the size of the kitchen island. For larger ones, generally, 3 pendants are enough. But if your pendants are rather small, then you can consider getting a fourth one. It is also recommended to leave 24-34 inches between the pendants.

Thirdly, the material is an important detail. If you prefer something easy to clean, then consider glass and metal pendants that are simple in form. And avoid fabric ones.

Beach-Style Kitchen with Linear Pendant and Marble Countertops

For large islands, instead of buying two or three pendants, you can just use a linear pendant. It will just keep things simpler and more minimalist. This beach-style kitchen, for example, employs a brass finish LED linear pendant to accompany this large island. It adds a soft contrast to the white shaker cabinets and gray marble countertops.

How big should pendant lights be over a kitchen island?

When deciding the size of pendant lights for your kitchen island, there are a couple of factors to consider, such as the size of a kitchen island. If you have a small kitchen island, you won’t need something oversized. Two small pendants of 8 inches are enough for a 4-5 feet island, for example. For bigger islands, you can act more generous. As a general rule of thumb, it is recommended to subtract 12 inches from the width measurement of your island and use it as a cue for how wide the pendant should be. For example if your island measures 30 inches, then you can choose a pendant with 18-inch width.

Dome Pendant Lights For Kitchen Island with Marble Countertop

This modern-farmhouse kitchen island is topped by a polished marble countertop. The brown striations on this benchtop add an earthly quality to it, while the wood base of the island brings a rustic touch. Above, a duo of bronze dome-shaped pendants adds an industrial feel to the island without sacrificing its modern farmhouse design.

How do I choose the right size pendant light?

Choosing the right size pendant light depends on the island size. But first, keep in mind that a 30 to 36 inches distance should be maintained between the countertop and the light base. This way, you ensure that clearance is secured, and pendants don’t block your view. At this point, ceiling height may also need to be considered. If you have a low ceiling, for example, then you may need to get a smaller pendant. And when it comes to choosing the right size pendant, it is recommended for the lighting fixture to be between 2/3 and 3/4 of the measurement. So, all you need to do is to measure the width or diameter of your island. Then you also automatically know how big your pendant should be.

Unique Pendant Lights

With unique pendant lights, you can make your island the star piece of your kitchen. Just to name a few, modern fat light fixtures, cluster pendants, copper/brass pendants, tear-dropped glass fixtures, and many more could be regarded as unique pendant lights. If you want something more minimalist and sleeker, slim LED, summit, and linear lighting fixtures could be a great alternative.
