How high should pendants hang above a counter?
When it comes to hanging lights on a countertop, nothing comes close to hanging pendants. The pendant adds a decorative touch that isn’t there in traditional or modern lighting systems. Typically, a height of 30-35 inches is high enough so that its out of the way when you’re using the counters.
Kitchens that have high ceilings or taller people, 40 inches is a great height to install your pendants. Ideally, you want to make sure that the pendants don’t interfere with regular kitchen activities and add a great aesthetic feature. Pendants can come in various styles, and its important to create a consistent theme.
