Pendant Light Use & Placement

Pendant lights are ideal for general, task, mood, and decorative lighting. Typically placed over a kitchen island, dining room table, game surface like a billiard table. They are also used in hallways. Below, we elaborate on the placement and usage of pendant lights in common areas.


Pendant Light Use & Placement over a Kitchen Island

Hanging Pendant Height KitchenTask lighting is important in a working room such as the kitchen. Pendant lights are commonly hung over kitchen islands providing adequate task lighting while also providing an opportunity to enhance the kitchen design.

When hanging a pendant light over a kitchen island, the pendant should be hung 30 to 40 inches above the island surface. Because kitchen islands are where family and guests gather, you should consider their interactions at the island when deciding on how low to hang your pendant. If the island has a cooking area, the pendant should not be a nuisance to the person cooking. If the island is used for homework or other work, the pendant should be hung low enough to provide sufficient light for reading.



Pendant Light Use & Placement over a Dining Room Table
DiningRoom_Pendant Height

Traditionally, a chandelier is used over a dining room table but you can change the  look and style by using a pendant fixture with dramatic results

Try hanging pendant lights so the bottom of the fixture is approximately 30 to 36 inches above the dining room table surface. This allows for maximum lighting without the fixture interfering with the area. If you have a smaller dining room table or are looking to create a more intimate setting, hang your pendant light lower. It is important to note that the fixture is not hanging so low that it creates a glare in your eyes or interferes with people conversing at the table.

Pendant Light Use & Placement over a Billiard (Pool) Table

Hanging Billiard_Pendant









Multi-light pendants are common pool table lights. When playing pool, direct illumination in addition to ambient lighting is necessary. Downward multi light pendants are the best fixture type to use because they illuminate the playing surface, eliminate glare and shadows and provide excellent illumination. When being used over a billiard table, the pendant light fixture should hang approximately 32 to 36 inches over the playing surface.

In striving to maintain our standing as the best source for LED lighting in Canada and with our policy of only stocking the best quality product for our customers we are happy to introduce a new selection of  LED disc or puck lights for under cabinet installation.

The problem with most LED undercabinet lighting systems is that the fixutures do not produce near enough light output additionally the colour of the light is too cold or blue  and  the beam spread is too narrow.

Norburn is now stocking Canadian made MP Lighting’s L58 disc / puck. This sleek LED fixtures  produces a comparable qualtiy of  light similar to our xenon pucks but the LED fixture consumes a scant 2.5w of energy. Insallation currently is surface mount only,  you can space them every 1.5-2ft just like the xenon ones.
