Seeking Opinion on Pendant Lighting

10 years ago

We took a break from working on our kitchen to enjoy the Christmas, and its the end of April :-) Back to work! I am currently working on lighting over our island and backsplash. Pretty sure we will keep it simple with the BS and use whitish subway style tile..maybe change up the size or shape but solid color. Anyhow, the lights. What should go here? One light? Two mini pendants? Our ceilings are 8 ft, island measures 75x36. Here is a recent pic of the kitchen....

Here are a few lights I found online that appeal to me. The first one is super cheap (under $100, sale ends today). But it is seeded I like seeded glass? :/

This is a mini pendant, much more expensive but just wondering if style/size is what should go here.

Something larger?


or something shorter? i don't think this is what i want..

couple mini's from Pottery Barn..

I guess my thoughts are

1. our ceilings are only 8 ft.

2. kitchen is a part of the family room, so I don't want something to block the view, leaning me more towards something glass for open/airy feel? I don't really envision a line of pendants dangling down. Just a statement piece.

Give me your thoughts !
