Lighting Above a Kitchen Island

- Measure the length of the island/table in inches. Example: 60" wide.
- Determine how many pendants you want and the diameter of each.
- Subtract the combined diameter from the length of the island.
- Add 1 to the number of pendants.
- Divide your subtracted value by the number of pendants.

**Can you put a round chandelier over a rectangle table?** A chandelier, pendant/suspension, or non-linear multi-pendant light fixture make sense over a round table. A linear suspension or linear multi-pendant light fixture make sense over a rectangular table. While you wouldn't want a linear light over a round table, you could use two round lights over a rectangular table.

**How big should an entry chandelier be?** For higher ceilings of 11 to 16 feet, an entryway chandelier can range between 27 inches to more than 40 inches tall.

**How low should a chandelier hang in a living room?** Hang chandeliers at least 7 feet above the ground in living rooms and entryways with standard 8-foot ceilings, and hang them around 8 feet high with taller ceilings. If the chandelier hangs from a 2-story ceiling, don't let it hang lower than the height of the first floor.
