Browse pendant lights at Frank Webb Home and add practical illumination to your space. Pendant lights can be decorative, functional, or both, but typically work best in homes with high ceilings. This particular style of ceiling light is often installed in kitchens, where it provides task lighting above work areas like an island, sink, or dining table. But don’t be afraid to think beyond the kitchen when considering pendant lights: These hanging light fixtures are also an excellent option for suspending above bathroom sinks in lieu of vanity lights. In the bedroom, a lantern pendant light adds elegant illumination to a cozy reading nook, while modern pendant lights make an unexpected alternative to table lamps when placed above a nightstand. Whether you’re looking to hang a linear fixture over a kitchen island or need two matching pendant lights for the bedroom or bath, you’ll find pendants in a range of styles and sizes to suit your space at Frank Webb Home.

Frequently Asked Questions

How low should pendant lights hang?

As a general rule of thumb, a pendant light should hang between 30 and 36 inches from a countertop or island. Take into consideration your height and the height of the ceilings: You don’t want the hanging fixture to disrupt your line of sight.

How big should pendant lights be over an island?

When choosing pendant lights for a kitchen island, consider the size of the area to be illuminated. A single large pendant light may be sufficient for a small kitchen island, while longer islands will require more than one fixture. Multiple pendant lights should be hung at a distance apart equal to twice their width: For example, two 12-inch wide pendant lights should be hung with 24 inches between them. Use this spacing as a guideline to determine the size and number of pendant lights you need.
