The "rule of three" is the basic rule most interior designers use when it comes to lighting the kitchen island. By repeating a certain element three times, you can easily achieve balance. It can also be referred to as the "rule of odd numbers." The human brain is a pattern-recognition machine, and one of the most basic patterns the brain recognizes is an odd number. In some kitchens, there are three pendants lights over the kitchen island and then a fourth coordinating pendant over the kitchen sink. The lighting is balanced because the three pendant lights suspended over the island are on one plane, and the other pendant over the kitchen sink is on another plane all together.
A slight contradiction in design is worth noting here. One of the more appealing uses of the pendant during the past decade, is in the kitchen. These fixtures are often suspended over a kitchen island or other food preparation area and feature an open-ended bottom through which a soft light is emitted. This is a very attractive feature in the right kind of kitchen because of the even lighting it provides. This type of pendant fixture is also finding its way into other areas of the home.
