How to choose pendant lights to provide enough lighting
Hello! As my renovation looms closer, I'm trying to figure out lighting. We are planning to have recessed lighting in the kitchen area with pendant lights over the peninsula.
Do pendant lights provide good task lighting. If yes, then what size/type of pendants will provide the best lighting? My peninsula will be the main work area in the kitchen and I want to make sure there is good lighting for that area. My peninsula will be approximately 80" with upper cabinets at the far end.
What size of pendants should I look for (mini or regular).
What type of light bulb? Do they come in a variety of options (halogen, etc) or are they pretty standard?
How many should I have--2 or 3?
Thanks for any help you can provide. I've looked at hundreds of options but my head is spinning and I really need to look at function then look at form.
