Larger pendants and chandeliers are common place in a kitchen over an eating area. These provide an anchor above your table and complete the space whether it is portioned off by a wall or is a part of another room.
The kitchen is a work area and as such needs to have lighting other than general purpose lighting. Take a look around at the dark spots in the kitchen. Maybe adding some under cabinet lighting would help showcase your counter tops while providing much needed light for that work area. Perhaps over the kitchen island there needs to be a series of small, more direct lighting fixtures to help in food preparation. Over the kitchen or dining room table, installing lights that can be on a dimming switch can create quite the mood. And when it's time to get the homework done with the kids, the switch can be turned up a few notches to insure proper light that will help with eye strain.
Over an eating table you will want to hang your fixture at 60˝ from the floor. For the same reasons I‘ve noted above with pendant lights, you will want to be able to converse with someone across the table but not be blinded by the light bulbs when you look up into the fixture.
Down Light Pendants - Down Light Pendants are fixtures that shine direct light downward, and they are best for work lighting to completely illuminate any task at hand.
Up Light Pendants - Up Light Pendants are fixtures that shine light upward. This type is great for basic lighting, as the light shines skyward and can enlarge a space with ease. One will find that ceramic, glass or wooden pendant lights in this style make a statement.
