Our ceiling lighting is in - we followed your guidance here and it looks great and definitely brightens everything up! We will also install under cabinet lighting and pendants above our island. Is there a rule of thumb for how many pendant lights based on length of space being covered? Our island is roughly 6.5’ x 5.25’ (countertop anyway). We will also install a vent over the cooktop - an insert in a drywall housing. That has two LED lights.

Sharing some in-progress photos.

Kellie, thank you for sharing the photos!! As for pendants, there is no rule of thumb for quantity because pendant sizes vary so greatly. Designers tend to favor odd numbers (3 pendants instead of 4), but that is a rule that can be broken. For your island I would say two "larger" pendants (perhaps 18" diameter) or three smaller pendants (6-10" diameter).
