Kitchen Pendant Buying Guide


A kitchen pendant light is more than just a functional element in your cooking space. It's also a chance to show off your personal style. But with so many different options on the market, how do you choose the right one for your kitchen? Here are a few things to keep in mind as you shop for kitchen pendants:



Style

First, decide what style you want. Do you want something sleek and modern? Or are you looking for something more traditional? There are kitchen pendants available in all types of styles, so take some time to browse until you find one that speaks to you and your home's architectural statement. Remember, this is an opportunity to make a statement and bring on the drama, so don't be afraid to go bold.



Size

Next, think about the size of your kitchen. You can go with more oversized pendants if you have a large space. But if your kitchen is smaller, stick with a more petite option. You don't want your pendants to overwhelm the room.


Quantity

How many pendants should you hang in your space? It depends on the scale of the pendants as well as the size of your island. For example, two pendants will look just right over a 7-8 ft island; however, you can install three for a larger 10-12 ft island.


Function

Finally, consider the function of your pendant. If you do a lot of cooking, look for a kitchen pendant that offers ample light. But if your primary concern is style, plenty of attractive but less functional options are available.

With so many options available, we're sure you'll find the perfect one for your home. Have fun with it!
