The most important aspect of pendant lighting is the size and number. Simply put, a large kitchen island needs either more pendant lights or bigger ones while a smaller one needs fewer lights or smaller ones.
For an average kitchen island of 3 by 6 feet (18 square feet), you would need lighting that delivers 540 Lumens of light. A long island of 3 by 12 feet (36 square feet) needs twice the number of lumens – 1,080 lumens. Of course the number doesn’t have to be exact, just stick close to it. If there are too many Lumens of light being given off, the light will be harsh and uncomfortable. Going too low will leave the surface dark and shadowy.
The kitchen island is rarely ever used for one activity only. In most homes it is a multipurpose space whose role changes depending on the occasion, time of day and changing family needs. Its various functions include being a breakfast area, a kitchen workspace, a cooking center or even a full dining space.
Do you ever wish that you could design a kitchen that incorporated a few of your favorite elements, rather than trying to fit your kitchen into a predetermined style? Are you remodeling your kitchen, and you can’t decide between a masculine or a feminine touch? Do you want something both practical and creative? Then these transitional kitchen designs are perfect for you!
