A pendant that is off-center from your dining table can feel unbalanced.
It can be frustrating when your junction box is off-center. Whether it’s off-center in the room or off-center from your furniture, having a light in the wrong place feels off-putting. We’re here to help you with some solutions!
Instead of hiring a contractor to relocate the light, which can be costly and time-consuming, here are four simpler methods to center your light fixture:
1. Use a hook to relocate the light
This method is called swaging. Install a swag hook over the spot where you want your pendant to hang. Choose a pendant with a flexible cord/chain and hang your pendant over the hook. Now your pendant is centered!

Here are some pendants and chandeliers that can be swaged:
2. Install a linear suspension wired from one side
Many linear suspensions are wired in on one end and mounted on the other end, allowing you to center your fixture without moving the canopy.

3. Install a light with a flexible canopy
Many linear suspensions have a flexible canopy, allowing you to mount your light away from the canopy.

Pro Tip: For a unique look, you can install suspended pendants that are wired in on one end. The other end of the suspension can be hung so that your pendants are centered.

4. Install a light with a large rectangular canopy
You can install a light with a large rectangular canopy to cover up the junction box. The junction box would be hidden on one side of the canopy. The other side of the canopy can hide the excess wiring.
You can take a look at linear multi-light pendants for more lights with a large rectangular canopy. Along with that, pendants from Lodes can be made into multi-light pendants with a large rectangular canopy. Here are some of our favourite linear multi-light pendants:
