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.
There are a couple of ways that you can use recessed lighting. The first is to use it as a wash of light over the fronts of your cabinets as well as your work areas. A spot would give you a narrower beam of light that could create shadows either wanted or not wanted. A flood light would give you more of a wash of light.
In the dining room, these lights can replace the classic chandelier of days past to play with the appearance and style completely. The lights should be thirty to thirty-six inches above the table, and possibly higher for a larger table. A lower placed light will create a cozy atmosphere, but beware of having it so low that it shines into diners’ eyes.
