The single greatest disadvantage of pendant lights is the same as their greatest advantage — they hang down from the ceiling. They can get in the way, and need to be limited to areas where people won‘t be walking unless your kitchen has ceilings that are more than 8 feet high. In kitchens with tall ceilings, pendant lights can both bring the light closer to where you need it and help reduce the sense of being in the bottom of a well.
If you do not want kitchen lighting that makes a statement or distracts from your kitchen design, a practical solution is recessed lighting. With the ability to light the entire kitchen or selected areas, recessed lighting is simple, clean and subtle.
The standard one-light pendant is a great deal, and these products come with several features that make them perfect for the kitchen. The Globe Electric Angelica Pendant has all the necessary hardware and is easy to install. Plus, it has an adjustable hanging rod that lets you customize the fixture to best fit your kitchen. If you have a compatible dimming switch, the pendant light can be used with dimmable LED lights.
