How far apart do I place pendant lights

kent39March 3, 2008

We have a 9 foot long Island and it is five feet in width. How many pendant lights would go over it...three or four?

Depends on how big the pendants are, and how high above the surface they are hung. On such a wide island, you might find that a row of pendants lights the center of the counter nicely but leaves the edges (where you'd work) a little dim.
