Mini pendants for kitchen island – how to determine the right number
Modern mini pendants for kitchen island are often used in combination with other light sources – a large chandelier, recessed lighting, fluorescent or LED lights. The right number will depend on several factors.
First of them is the available space. You can have two, three or more mini pendants with different light intensity. Another factor is the size and design of the space. A group of lights may look out of place in a small kitchen while two or three fixtures in a large area may not provide enough light and the space will look somewhat empty.
A third factor which will determine the number is the design of the lighting fixtures. Modern mini pendants come in various designs and everyone can choose the ideal model for themselves.
Lighting fixtures with modern design
Modern mini pendants for kitchen island combine a sharp look and functionality. Very often they are used not only as a light source but as a decorative accent as they create a feeling of openness. Like other pendant lighting fixtures they are suspended from the ceiling by a cord, chain, or a metal rod.
In contemporary design we often see mini pendants grouped above the kitchen island, sometimes at equal length and more and more often – at different lengths. They can be adjusted to any height and this makes them not only convenient and versatile, but in design terms you could create a dynamic feeling and add character to the room.
