The kitchen needs a good lighting as we spend a lot of time there. One of the growing trends in kitchen lighting is using mini pendants for kitchen island. The advantage of using mini pendants is that they are very flexible and provide a better lighting. Mini pendants can hang alone or clustered together which is a clever way not only for home lighting but for decoration as well.
Mini pendants for kitchen island – how to determine the right number
Modern mini pendants for kitchen island are often used in combination with other light sources – a large chandelier, recessed lighting, fluorescent or LED lights. The right number of mini pendants over the kitchen island will depend on several factors.
First of them is the available space. You can have two, three or more mini pendants with different light intensity. Another factor is the size and design of the kitchen. A group of pendants may look out of place in a small kitchen while two or three mini pendants in a large area may not provide enough light and the space will look somewhat empty.
A third factor which will determine the number of pendants is the design of the lighting fixtures. Modern mini pendants come in various designs and everyone can choose the ideal model for themselves.

In contemporary design we often see mini pendants grouped above the kitchen island, sometimes at equal length and more and more often – at different lengths. Mini pendants can be adjusted to any height and this makes them not only convenient and versatile, but in design terms you could create a dynamic feeling and add character to the room.
