Kitchen pendant lights are similar to the usual pendant lights that you have in other places at your home. There is no fundamental difference between them. However, you need to understand the right amount of light that you need from your kitchen lighting. This will also lead to determination of the size of the lighting. Also, normally you would prefer to install a different style of pendant in your kitchen from other places of your house. This is completely optional, but this is the way that most people tend to like.
Bowl pendants are often hung as the focal point of a room, and can be used instead of a chandelier in kitchen and dining areas, entryways, etc. Bowl pendant lighting is usually softer than other pendant types, because the light is diffused through the much larger glass bowl. And because the bowl is open on the top of the fixture, it gives off up and down lighting. For this same reason, though, bowl pendants should always be hung higher than eye level to keep from looking directly into the open top. They are not recommended for area near staircases and balconies because of this.
When deciding where and how to use pendant lighting, first consider the function they should serve. You can use them individually, pair them or use several in a row. A single pendant is great over a small table, such as a dinette or bistro table in the kitchen. For longer areas, you can run multiple pendants while pendants for a kitchen counter can be mounted wherever additional lighting is needed, such as over the sink, a prep area, island or stove. If you're placing pendants above a workspace or table, they should ideally be mounted 30” to 36” above the surface. This allows you to get maximum lighting without the pendant fixture getting in the way. If you simply don't have the space to put them up this high, you may want to go with accent, track or recessed lighting options instead.
When placed strategically, these types of lights provide a more even splash of illumination across an area. For example, when used in the bathroom, you will not have to struggle to see what you are doing when shaving or applying makeup. Pendant lights work well over a dining room table or over the stove in the kitchen.
