But sometimes, the rule of three is not applied. In some modern kitchens with a smaller island, there are two but larger pendant lights. The two pendants illuminate the kitchen island, and they are big enough that three pendants would already be overwhelming. The amount of light you need and the size of the pendant lights you are using trumps the rule of three or other rules.
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.
