Brighten your breakfast bar
Many of our pendant lights come with energy-efficient and long-lasting LED bulbs, offering a choice of colour temperatures – including warm white, cool white and even daylight – to create the perfect atmosphere for social brunches or cosy Sunday morning breakfasts. LED retrofit lamps are also available for our non-LED products.
Choose from light bars that make the perfect centrepiece for illuminating your breakfast bar, or single pendants that can be dotted across a kitchen island – or placed at either end – to create the perfect ambient or mood lighting for every occasion.
Tips before you buy…
How to pick a light for a kitchen island?
To find the perfect light pendant for your kitchen island, first, consider how long the surface is. Do you need a single pendant or bar to place in the centre of the island or multiple pendants to cover the full length? Next, consider how much light you need. Will a single pendant provide ample ambient light or will you need a pendant light bar with multiple bulbs for added illumination?
How high should pendant lights be above a kitchen island?
As a general rule, there should be a minimum of 30” between the bottom of the pendant light and the kitchen island surface. This allows for plenty of room, so the pendant doesn’t interfere when laying the table or sitting with friends. However, you may want to leave more room – especially if the light is particularly bright or powerful.
Should pendant lights be central over a kitchen island or breakfast bar?
While pendant lights are often centred over a kitchen island or breakfast bar, this isn’t a necessity. Especially on longer islands or bars, you may need multiple pendants to provide ample light. Similarly, you may prefer to hang pendant lights toward the front or back of the island to complement other interior design choices.
