new kitchen/diner extension dining area is 2.7m wide with pitched ceiling raising up to 3m on one side

we've bought a Norm69 lampshade for a pendant light, 60cm diameter.

what would be the best height above dining table?

there is also a downlight eitherside and all dimmable

thanks smile

Does this help.

We looked at this and I the real answer is it's up to you but between 28" and 32" above the table seems to be fairly standard advice .

Just measured ours and bottom of light is 32.5 inches above table and looks about right. Not good if table not there though as people kept banging their heads on it...
