Ceiling fixtures are designed in a way to provide general lighting to the entire kitchen. Typically, they project down from the ceiling and are usually the biggest lighting piece found in the kitchen. These fixtures can also be hung over a breakfast nook or a kitchen table. There are two types of ceiling fixture; flush-mount ceiling fixture with the glass or diffuser touching the ceiling and semi-flush ceiling fixtures where the bowl projecting from the ceiling such that it hangs a couple of inches away, with indirect light reflecting from the ceiling (think of it like an upside down umbrella).
Island chandeliers are a linear lighting fixture that can span the entire length of your bar or island. These are very popular because they have a lot depth and character. Island lighting is available in several light variations from two light versions to four light versions. Homeowners and designers love these because they have the look and beauty of a chandelier but the light is spread out over the length of your island.
Pendants are used above kitchen islands or bars. Here, you will want to hang your pendant at 72˝ from the floor. This will allow anyone standing on either side of the island or bar to have a conversation without having the pendant in the middle of their eye sight line. And it won't be so high that you are blinded by the light bulb if you happen to look up.
For example, your kitchen light fixtures can include kitchen ceiling light fixtures that are rather soft, softer mood lights that are recessed into countertops and backsplash areas, and even kitchen island lights that are bright fluorescent lights that can be used for actually preparing foods.
Pendant lighting works best at places where the ceiling is high. Due to high ceiling the light can give its effect to whole room but it does not become the main focus of the room. Pendent lighting is not too bright so it gives a beautiful look to the room. Also you can adjust the brightness of the room according to your own convenience.
