Selecting pendant lighting at island installations is a big improvement to your design.
Lighting is often overlooked in older homes but now is seriously considered with remodeling and updating. The options available to you for your design are endless.
Single pendant placement is an easy task. Most installations the light is places in the center of the island. There are rare occurrences when a custom placement is required.
Even number of pendant lighting at island-
Spacing of lighting over the island for an even number of fixtures starts at the center of the island. For two(2) lights you would then split the two sections and add several inches towards the sides. For four (4) or more lights you would want to select a nice spacing between fixtures calculated from the center of the fixture. Multiplying the spacing by the number of fixtures and subtracting from the overall length of your island will give you the space to split from each side.
Odd number of pendant lighting at island-
Spacing of the fixtures is not just a matter of dividing the space into proportions and placing the fixture. Lighting locations are often placed in the center of a walkway or the length of an island when there are an odd number of fixtures and spread further to the ends for the outside fixtures.
