Funky Fixtures: A Lesson in Kitchen Lighting
Kitchens come in all shapes, sizes and colors. They come in a wide variety of personalities and finishes. This is what makes designing a kitchen so fun! One detail that can bring the space together is lighting. Choosing the right lighting is everything. And one spot to highlight for great lighting is the island. This can become an anchor point for your kitchen. Some prefer a few bigger pendants, others prefer multiple smaller pendants. I’ve highlighted a few of my favorites in this post.

Two large pedants is always a good idea! I love this look for so many reasons. It anchors the room and the large scale brings a good amount of visual weight. Choose two that have a similar finish with the hardware. Or choose something entirely different for a unique, modern look all your own.

If you want to go really playful, add a track with a number of lights! This is such a fun look and creates a very industrial feel.

I normally love to design things around the number three. Three small to medium sized pendants is another winning decision. This works fantastic when displaying lights above a really large island. And again, choose a finish that will knock your socks off and make a statement!

Speaking of finishes, some of my favorite options are brass, matte black, copper, chrome and powder coated white or black. These copper pendants look fantastic up against this black and white kitchen. It’s all about mixing and matching in the name of taste!
