  • How to Properly Space Pendant Lighting
    May 04, 2018

    Using pendant lighting to improve any room will make all the difference. It’s easy to install, reasonably priced, and comes in too many visually appealing fixtures and designs to list. However, no matter where you decide to install pendant lighting there are some considerations to think about. The most important one, particularly if you are installing a grouping of lights, is the spacing.

    What Is Pendant Lighting?

    Pendant lighting is the type of lighting that hangs suspended from the ceiling. The styles are varied and beautiful, much like the colors and materials they are made of. You can find chandelier, mini, teardrop, lantern, and blown glass designs, among many others.

    Floor to Ceiling Spacing

    The first thing to consider is how high to hang the fixtures you have chosen. This depends on several factors, the number one being how tall your ceilings are.

    If you have vaulted ceilings where you intend to hang the pendant lighting, then you will want to create a visually appealing break in the space. The halfway mark is a good indicator. There is no hard and fast rule, but they should be low enough to be able to change the light bulb and high enough that no head injuries occur.

    For typical ceiling heights, such as in the kitchen, a rough estimate is about 30 inches to 36 inches above the counter space. Every room will be different depending on what you're using the lighting for and how big the fixtures are.
