Island Pendant/Dining Room Chandelier options

3 years ago

Doing a remodel and need to place my lighting order very soon. My new island will be 9 ft long. I want to hang three pendant lights over the island. The dining room table will be perpendicular to the kitchen island. There is a five foot gap from the end of the island to the beginning of the dining table. The ceilings are 8 ft, and we have a view out the windows that together measure the length of the table. The previous owner placed a chandelier at eye level that blocked the view out the windows from the kitchen. We would like to place a chandelier 19-20 inches from the ceiling. We know this is higher than the norm. I'm thinking a linear chandelier of some kind. The kitchen cabinets are natural- walnut, shaker style doors with Argento Vicostone quartz tops.

A few questions:

Should my pendants match the chandelier, since they are close to the dining table?

Are there any lighting options for the dining room besides a chandelier? We are adding recessed lights that will border the table.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
