Jo Simmons added this to What to Consider Before Hanging Pendant Lights17 December 2016

Pay attention to proportion The size of the pendant in the space needs consideration. ‘A small space with a low ceiling might not be suitable for a pendant at all,’ says James. ‘While if the space is vast, with very high ceilings, then a small pendant close to the ceiling would be lost and not only appear proportionally incorrect, but also provide little or no light.’ In a small, low-ceilinged room, a small pendant with minimal drop could work, while in a stairwell, where the vertical floor to ceiling height is huge, a more dramatic pendant with a slender form but considerable drop would work and provide more uniform ambient lighting for the stairs. ‘It sounds obvious, but it’s essential to think about the proportions of the space you’re working in,’ says James. ‘It might be appropriate to have more than one pendant to create more of a statement. Three smaller pendants over a breakfast bar, for instance, might have more impact than one central one.’
