Is this bright enough to be a kitchen island task light?
Thanks for your interest in this fixture. This pendant requires 5 40w 120v G9 halogen bulbs, which typically put out between 500 and 600 Lumens per bulb. In total, the fixture would be between 2,500 and 3,000 Lumens. Lumens are a way of determining the brightness of a light, and usually a good rule of thumb is to allow 20 Lumens per square foot for standard living area, and 50 Lumens per square foot for desk/task lighting. You can use this as a guide for determining if the unit will produce enough light for your kitchen space. Over an island, this fixture would be a nice touch and should more than adequately light the cook/prep surface area, but if you have a large, spacious kitchen, it may be worthwhile to consider some additional lighting for around the space as well. Should you require some additional clarification beyond this and would like to speak to a product specialist directly, feel free to give us a call anytime at 866.842.6209 and we can assist you.
