New Lighting Height Help

last month
last modified: last month

We are updating the lighting in our new house kitchen and dining area. My husband and I have differing opinions on lighting height so I'm hoping for some help! The ceilings are 9ft. The current pendants are hung lower (28" above counter) than the suggested pendant height and the current chandelier is hung higher (44" above table) than the recommend height.

We are going from three pendants to two and planning for 36" above the counter.

For the chandelier, my husband thinks we should hang it 40" above the table. The light we are ordering is on a fixed rod and can't be adjusted so I'm frozen on this decision. Do you think 40" will look too high? Or can we get away with it?

Included pictures of the new chandelier and pendants we are getting.
