After careful consideration and taking the time to positioning your pendant properly, here are a few more tips you can use to achieve the best possible result and the perfect design for your space.
Kitchen – Positioning Pendants over a kitchen Island
Consider this important general rule of thumb that should be applied when symmetry is in place. A pendant light should be positioned 75-80cm apart and also hung 75-80cm above the island counter surface.

Position a pendant in your hallway only if you have the adequate space. Position your pendant approximately 120cm away from each of the surrounding walls, and roughly 215cm up from the floors surface.
For height consideration, each additional 1/2 meter added to your ceilings height – over and above the standard ceiling height of (2.4m) – you should add an additional 6-7cm of hanging height up from the floors surface.
When dealing with a two story high ceiling, you should position and hang a single pendant light or chandelier no lower than the second story floors surface.
When your pendant light or chandelier has a cascading style effect, make sure it is strategically positioned no lower than 2.4m from the floors surface.
