Islands And Other Lighting Myths

A chandelier should be 12 inches in diameter less than the table. It should also be 24 inches off the surface for the right proportion.

Now forget the measurement as it has nothing to do with illumination. Task, accent, ambient as well as decorative lighting must be utilized in order to properly light a room. Decorative lighting is like art, and can really be any proportion.

Same is true for islands...Have a look.

The decorative pendants can be really anything, because the other design elements are actually lighting the spaces.
