Single or multiple pendants over island?

8 years ago

In my new kitchen we will have an island about 12 ft. long. I need to decide where I want lights over it. Part of the ceiling over the island is sloped so if I do multiple pendants, they'll have to have varying lengths which is certainly doable.

I'm thinking that maybe I can just do one big pendant. It's trendy now to do a row of pendants over an island/peninsula/work surface but it seems like a fairly recent trend. Aside from not being up-to-date, is there any reason to avoid doing a single fixture, like in older kitchens? They always seemed bright enough...
