Dining Table: The pendant should be suspended about 30 to 36 inches above the table. This will allow for ample illumination while reducing glare at the same time. Bar or Raised Counter:: The bottom of your pendant light should float about 30 inches above the counter surface. For desks, bring the light in closer to the work surface by allowing your pendant lamp to float about 16 inches from the surface. However, this can change depending on the height of you and your family. Foyer: Illuminate your space without encroaching on head space by suspending your hanging lamp about seven feet from the floor.
Bathroom: Cast a flattering light in your bathroom vanity area by suspending an eye-catching hanging lamp or cluster of pendants near eye level and about 18 inches from the center of your sink. This unconventional lighting style will eliminate those pesky shadows under your chin, cheeks and eyes. Ceilings Higher Than Eight Feet: If you have ceilings taller than eight feet, be sure to add on three inches for each additional foot of ceiling height.
An important property of light fixtures is the luminous efficacy or wall-plug efficiency, meaning the amount of usable light emanating from the fixture per used energy, usually measured in lumen per watt. A fixture using replaceable light sources can also have its efficiency quoted as the percentage of light passed from the "bulb" to the surroundings.
