“Use LED lights on the plinth to creating a floating effect, and hang a row of three pendant lights above an island. If you are positioning pendants over a permanent fixture, consider low-hung shades for an intimate atmosphere. Typically, pendants should be hung around 70 to 85cm above a worktop, or 182cm above the floor. In the kitchen you need good task lighting for preparing food, ambient lighting for everyday meals, and decorative lighting to make a style statement. Put all lights on dimmer switches so the level of light can be altered depending on the activity at hand.”
