My island is 9'-2". I originally laid out 4 8" pendants but cut it back to 3. Even with 3 it is almost too bright when sitting there even with the lowest wattage LED bulbs I could find. A 12" fixture is a big pendant so I would go with 3 or 4.
Here is mine...crappy photo but all I had on hand.

Around the base? It's shoe mold that has not been painted to match the island just yet. I had a custom color done on the island but they painted the shoe mold in place...don't know why.

so they can nail the shoe mold on, then cover the nails, light sand and paint to match. hiding the nails and holes basically

Seems like it would be easier to paint in before hand and patch & touch up the nail holes rather than nail it, tape off the floor and paint it all in. But I'm not a painter.

This is normally the way it's done.

3 is perfect, 5 is to many.

Have had a 15+ foot island and now a 12' ish one. Both had 3 pendants. any more would look really busy.

if there is any caulking in the seams, then you would basically be painting the entire thing any way. and a good painter uses very little tape if any at all

Agreed I just sent builder an email. If we need more light we can up the wattage in the
bulbs or turn on the hi hats.

Thanks

I personally really like it. My dad had a place right on water of the bay near Choctaw Beach FL way back in the 70's. Was local cut Cyprus inside and outside floor ceiling and walls. Now that was a lot of Cyprus. But Id give my left nut to have that little cabin back and that issue today!

Our island is approximately 12x5' and has LED cans on either side... For the pendants, which although functional, are more decorative, I found some on https://bigshipsalvage.com/ that came off of an old freight ship and had my contractor make the mounts from ceiling fan extensions. We're happy with how they turned out...

Please add my name to the like category, even better that you sourced it from your own property........
