Kitchen Island Lighting: The kitchen island is a hub in the kitchen for everything from preparing meals to eating a quick breakfast. The key to installing lighting here is making sure it doesn’t come to your eye level. Instead, you should hang the fixture between 30 to 36 in. above the countertop. The fixture should be about 2/3 the length of the island and be installed in the centre of the ceiling overhead.
Chandelier Above the Circle Kitchen Table: The correct placement of your lighting above the kitchen table is vital for a practical, yet stylish eating area. When it comes to hanging a chandelier over a round table you’ll want to make sure the fixture is ½ to ¾ of the table’s diameter or length and hang it just above the centre of the circle table. Follow the same height rules as you would a rectangle table!SHOP ALL CHANDELIERS
Wall Lamps: A great alternative to table lamps, these wall-mounted lamps are perfect for task lighting. When installing, centre them with your nightstand but also within reach of your bed. Depending on the height of your nightstand, they should be placed approximately 45 to 60 in. from the floor.
Ceiling Lights: Ceiling light fixtures should be installed either in the centre of your room or bed, depending on the size, and should be at least 7 ft. from the floor in a standard 8 ft. ceiling room. If you have a taller ceiling raise the fixture by 3 in. for every additional foot.
Flush Mount Lighting: This is the most common light fixture found in living rooms. Its practicality and versatility make it a popular option for homeowners and renters alike. Measure carefully to ensure it’s either centred above the couch or in the centre of the room.
Tip: Some ceiling lights are designed with a gap between the fixture and mount. Be careful to follow the height rules of hanging it no more than 7 ft. from the floor for a standard 8 ft. ceiling.

Wall Sconces Beside the Entryway Table: Wall sconces can add an elegant style to your entryway. Place them 5 to 6 ft. from the floor to bottom of the fixture, and on ether side of table. This will give it a squared off look while providing the right amount of light.
