Savoy House pendant lights offer the perfect combination of
style and function for your kitchen.
Pendant Lights in the
Whether you’re looking to light up a work area or refreshing
your décor, there are many different types of Savoy House pendant lights
from for your kitchen. Pendant lighting is a good choice for task lighting - a
type of lighting that focuses the light on your work area. That’s why using
pendant lights over a kitchen island is such a hot trend right now.
Although larger pendant lights work well providing light to
the entire room, a mini pendant will light a small area well. The sight of
three small pendant lights can have a greater impact than one large light. When
choosing lighting to place over your island or kitchen counter, consider using
three small pendants, like the Savoy
House Kelsey Mini Pendant
, to light up the island. Measure carefully so the
lights are spaced evenly for a balanced look.
When working with smaller Savoy House pendant lights, try to
use an odd number of lights so they draw the eye. When you’re working with
larger pendants, sometimes two lights side-by-side are enough so they don’t
overpower the space.
You can choose modern glass and chrome pendants or go retro

How to Hang a Pendant
Light in the Kitchen
It’s important to hang your pendant light properly so you
have the clearance to work in the kitchen and the lights in the room look
balanced. Your Savoy House pendant light should hang 12-20” below an eight-foot
ceiling. If your ceiling is higher, add three inches per foot, so a nine-foot
ceiling needs a light 15–23” below the ceiling and a ten-foot ceiling needs a light
If you prefer, you can measure distance from below. It’s
wise to give yourself 30–36” clearance over your island, countertop, or table.
That distance gives you room to work and keeps the pendant close enough to
light the area well. Try not to block the view of the rest of the kitchen and
never hang a pendant so low that someone may walk into it. You may get used to
moving around a low light but a guest could bang right into it, risking
personal injury and destroying your light.
If you find your task lighting too bright, consider adding a
dimmer. That way you can turn up the light while you’re working in the kitchen
and then dim it for a little mood lighting.
You can choose a colourful pendant light to add a splash of
excitement to a neutral kitchen. If the idea of too much colour in the kitchen
scares you, consider using coloured bulbs, even if just for special occasions.
Remember that the most important purpose of pendant lights
in the kitchen is to light your work area. Style is important but so is
function. Savoy House pendants strike the right balance between modern style
and effective task lighting.
