Kitchen Pendant Lighting Over Island
In addition to the choice offered by our range of profile sizes, mounting methods and lighting directions, our linear pendants are available in two materials.
All of our linear pendant lights are available in a range of profile sizes, allowing you to choose the height and depth of the pendant, as well as the length.
Our surface-mounted or suspended linear pendants are available in a total of 15 different profile sizes, ranging from 17mm to 120mm.
We offer a range of four different profile sizes for recessed linear profiles.
If you aren’t sure on the best size for your needs, we can help you make the right selection.
Where linear pendants are suspended, there are three ways in which light can be distributed.
The most conventional of these is direct light, where the entire light output is aimed downwards at the area beneath the fitting. This is ideal to use over kitchen islands, providing clear overhead light for tasks such as food preparation.
Another option is indirect, where light is directed upwards, towards the ceiling. This might be used for a general wash of light to create a certain ambience, supplemented by other accent lighting at a lower level. It can also highlight architectural features.
Finally, there is a combination of direct and indirect light. This is where the area both above and below the fitting are illuminated. This could be used over a dining table, for example, dimmed to create a warm, relaxed ambience for entertaining.
There are several options for mounting linear pendants. Surface-mounting attaches the linear pendant directly to the ceiling. This is a simple solution with straightforward installation, used for standard-height ceilings. They are ideally placed over kitchen work surfaces.
For a clean and sleek look, linear pendants can also be recessed flush with the ceiling. This works well with minimal interiors and streamlined kitchen designs.
Finally, if ceilings are high, or the pendant is going to be used over furniture such as a table, bench or kitchen island, the linear pendant can be suspended. This makes a striking design statement as well as a practical and functional light source.
Our aluminium linear profiles are available in three colours, to suit most interiors. Our range of Black, White and Anodised Silver finishes complement many kitchen schemes.
Colour Rendering Index
Colour Rendering Index (CRI) refers to how a light source affects the way colour is seen by the human eye, and how colour variations and shade are interpreted.
The index works on a scale from 1 to 100, and a high CRI level means that the lighting source will more accurately represent the true colours of the items illuminated. This is as important in the home as in a commercial setting. Using high-CRI lights will ensure your interiors are vibrant and colours are not washed out.
Cool WhiteA Cool White (5000K) colour temperature is closer to natural daylight, and is the most suitable option for working environments.
Warm WhiteA Warm White (3000K) colour temperature is closer to fire or candlelight, creating a cozier, more relaxing ambience suited to residential projects.
