Pendant Lighting Hanging Tips:
•In general, most pendant lights should allow for a clearance of 72 inches if suspended as a central fixture in the room.
•Atop an island or dining table—Allow for a clearance of 28-34 inches between the bottom of the fixture and top of the island or table surface.
•Most kitchen islands are 36-42 inches high, and pendant fixtures are available in a variety of sizes and shapes, so you need to adjust accordingly. Certain pendant lights may look better when hung a bit lower at about 30” over the table top and some may provide the best look installed higher around 40” above your table or island surface.
•Just as with a dining room chandelier, a pendant light or a series of hanging pendant lights should measure 12-18” less than the diameter of the surface over which they are installed. I.e. if you have an island that is 36 inches wide, the diameter of your hanging pendants should not be more than 24 inches.
•Most pendant light fixtures come with plenty of cord so that you may adjust the height in keeping with the proportions of your room.
